Signs of Spring

Quirky Crafts Chalenge Blog     Challenge 5- The First Signs of Spring-Double Z Card

I took the title of this post from part of the challenge going on at Quirky Crafts and the quirk to this challenge is the Double Z card. They gave a link to Splitcoast Stampers on their blog and we all know they have wonderful tutorials. There's only a couple of days left to enter this challenge, so if you're looking for something quirky, hop on over.
I happen to have used all Stampin' Up products on this card, but that doesn't mean you have to. Look through your stash for your spring stamps and papers and see what you can come up with.
I didn't decide I wanted texture on the front of my card until after I had cut and folded it, but I didn't let that deter me. I got out the Square Lattice embossing folder and who would have thought, the whole card fit inside perfectly. I've embossed plenty of things, but I never dreamed that I would get such a deep impression all the way through to the back. No pun intended, but I'm very impressed.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

What a gorgeous card! So happy and spring-y, love it. Sorry I haven't stopped over lately, have been ill but wanted to see what you were up to.

I have never tried a Z card, sounds challenging but fun.
