MHK Designs Blossoming


 
 
MHK Designs has a new blog and this is the first challenge!  Each month will be a photo//color inspiration and the design team will share creations made with products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop and we encourage you to play along!
 
Here is this month's inspiration:
 
 
 I have a passion for trying new folds.  I have made Z-fold cards before but this is my first modified Z-fold card, which basically is a shorter Z-fold card.   You start with the colored paper of your choice and trim it to 5 by 12 inches.  Mark the top left side 2 1/2 inches down  and trim on the diagonal to the top right corner.   Take white cardstock and trim to 4 7/8 by 12inches.  Mark top left corner at 2 3/8 inches  down and trim on the diagonal to the top right corner.   Scor both pieces at 4 and 8 inches, fold and attach white cardstock to colored cardstock with adhesive of your choice  as shown on my card and decorate as desired.

The prize for this challenge includes:
 



 
 You can play along at MHK Designs  and see the cards of the talented design team.

I have just used this shape for a card. I like the way you have popped the flowers up over the edge of the slanted edges. Hugs Mrs A.
