Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest France Martin


Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, this month we have France Martin or "Frenchie" as you may know of her joining us as special guest.  

When scrolling through Frenchie's blog and You Tube tutorials in noticed that Fun Fold cards popped up from time to time, I love fun folds! Now I knew what I would CASE, the problem though...... which style?  I decided to take the challenge of a Z-fold card as I hadn't done one of these before, below is Frenchie's card:



Rather than butterflys, I opted to showcase the gorgeous new Falling Flowers  Bundle from the 2016-2017 Catalogue to decorate my card



I procrastinated for quite some time, then just went free for all stamping in Basic black and die cutting the flowers, I water coloured the images using an Aqua Painter then laid them on the diagonal edges and worked on the arrangement, and oh my!... I am so happy with the result!  Here is my card




I used the full height and width of an A4 sheet to create the card; finished dimensions are is 8 1/4 x 4 inches - my Envelope punch board came in handy to make a custom size envelope. **update ** I have made now made a z-fold with finished dimensions of a C6 card, click here to find out more.

7 colours were used for the flowers, blending as I water coloured and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and base of the card.  The sentiment from Cottage Greetings matches this happy vibrant card perfectly!.  


Thank you Frenchie for joining the Crazy Crafters this month, your time and inspiration is much appreciated, and I now have another Fun Fold that I just adore!
