Z Fold Card for Father’s Day

This Z Fold Card for Father’s Day make look complicated  and it isn’t.    Tell Dad you remembered him on his special day with this card instead of just a tie.

You will need:

        • Heavy cardstock for the base (blue patterned)
        • Cardstock for the cutouts (dark blue)
        • Glue

Cutting the card

Cut the card base and the cutouts for fairly heavy cardstock.  Patterned paper looks better for the base than for the cutouts.  If dad doesn’t golf you can substitute in the other  cutout picture that I have included in the Design Space file.

Assembling the Card

Re crease all the folds. and glue the back panels to the card. 

 The banner folds go the opposite direction as the base card so that the card will stand up. Make sure that the dark blue banner is glued the write way so that the DAD is glued to a short section or it will be upside down.

Fold the tiny folds on the ends under and glue them to the base card.  When laying flat the “World’s Greatest” should be visible and the DAD hidden.  When open, the staggered folds should allow the card to stand.

And your card is done!  Enjoy.
