By popular demand... Imperial & Metric dimensions for z-Fold cards

I have had a number of requests regarding the US or imperial measurements/dimensions that I use for my z-fold cards - I've done my best to convert to American size cardstock and inches for you



The template is designed so that you can make 2 cards with one piece of cardstock.  Here is the order in which I applied the above measurements to make the card base:

Metric - A4
  1. measure up 6.5 cm from bottom left corner, make a small mark
  2. measure down 6.5 cm from top right corner, make a small mark
  3. line up marks on your trimmer at top and bottom of the card stock and cut. Your A4 sheet is cut diagonally and you have 2 z-fold card bases :)
  4. on the flat edge of the cardstock (not the diagonal cut edge) score at 9.9 cm and again at 19.8 cm
  5. fold along the score lines and burnish with bone folder 
  6. there you have it, you are all ready to decorate your z-fold card

Imperial - US
  1. trim 1/8 inch from your cardstock so that it measures 10 7/8 inches wide
  2. measure up 2.5 inches from bottom left corner, make a small mark
  3. measure down 2.5 inches from top right corner, make a small mark
  4. line up marks on your trimmer at top and bottom of the card stock and cut. Your cardstock is cut diagonally and you have 2 z-fold card bases :)
  5. on the flat edge of the cardstock (not the diagonal cut edge) score at 3 5/8 inches and again at 7 14 inches
  6. fold along the score lines and burnish with bone folder 
  7. there you have it, you are all ready to decorate your z-fold card

I hope you have fun creating you z-fold cards - happy crafting!

  3. Thanks so much for providing the imperial measurements. Even though Canada went to Metric some years ago, I learned Imperial in my youth and continue to think in terms of feet and inches. Your card was so beautiful, I just have to try it out myself. Appreciated.
