Michelle's Card
 
This card is called a "Z" Tri fold card.

Requirements for the card
Scissors or a personal cutter with software for SVG
Ribbon of your choice
Paper Piecings of your choice
Chalk
Plain cardstock 6 x 12 inches
Patterned cardstock
Glue

For this card the files I used are from LSHD
Merry Christmoose Title
Candy from Candy Cane Penguin
Peeking Reindeer (a past freebie)
All these files are available for personal cutters and a PDF file to hand cut the paper piecing.

Once the card has been scored and pattered paper glued on,
fold in valley and mountain folds to form the Z Shape.
Now go ahead and decorate with ribbon, and the paper piecings. You can also add a Christmas verse to one of the inside panels, stickles brads, perfect pearls and any other embellishment you choose.

Hope you enjoy making this card.
