Z-Fold Dog-Gone Birthday

Hello friends, welcome and thanks for stopping by.  I have had a couple of days off the computer, simply because life got busy and that happens doesn't it!!  Nothing bad - just busy, even some creative stuff happening!  I have been having a lot of fun creating a Z-Fold card and bringing out stamps I have been wanting to use for so-o-o long - who doesn't love these Crazy Dogs by Stampers Anonymous.

I have also used Kaisercraft patterned papers, Spellbinders Dies and Chameleon Pens.

My white card base measures 28cm x 10cm and the second piece measures 28cm x 5cm. Score the card base at 7cm and 14cm.  Make a mountain fold on the first score line and a valley fold on the second score line so that you have a basic Z-Fold card.   Repeat the scoring and folding on the smaller piece of card stock.

Turn the smaller piece of card stock over so that the long section is on the left hand side the folded sections are on the right hand side. Adhere Kaisercraft patterned paper to each portion of the card base and the smaller strip using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra - cut slightly smaller to allow a white border around each piece. 
NOTE: Make sure you have the two sections facing the right way before adding patterned papers and embellishments. 

Attach the smaller piece to the large piece. Apply Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra to the left half only of the long section. and secure it to the left hand side of the larger piece of card stock. I placed mine about  1cm from the base, but  it can be higher if you like.  Secure the right side between the last score line and the right hand edge also using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

Now to decorate - I have stamped the images using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, coloured using Chameleon Pens.  Each of the gorgeous dogs have been fussy cut/hand cut out using scissors and popped up onto the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  3D Foam Squares.

The happy birthday sentiment has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Happy Birthday w/Numbers Etched Dies Special Moments Collection by Marisa Job.  The Banners cut/embossed using the Die D-Lites Amused 1 Etched Dies and the Balloons from a Die D-Lie Etched Die.  All of the images and decorations are visible when the card is open.
