MHK Designer Inspiration: Butterfly Wisdom

Hello,  it is my day to share some inspiration on the MHKDesign's blog today.

I am sharing  a card  made with  Butterfly Wisdom stamp set:

 
And the beautiful paper set: Stenciled Roses Digital Papers.
 
I made a Cascading Z- Fold card. 
 
To make a regular Z fold card :
-Cut a piece of cardstock 12" by 5 1/2"
-Scor at 2" 4" 8" 10"
- Fold as shown with no trimming
-Decorate folds and inside with patterned paper
 
For a Cascading Z-fold card:
-Mark 2" down from the top on each end of the card stock, trim from this mark to the
second fold line which is 4" from the end.  See below:
 
 
-Decorate with designer paper as shown.
 
Hope you will try out this fun technique!
 
 
A few fun challenges:
