You're Crab-u-lous!!!

If you are here for the My Pink Stampers Blog Hop click HERE or just see the post below this one.

Happy Monday!  Today's is Paper Playtime challenge day!  I love this challenge blog because it really does challenge you to try new things.  This weeks challenge is to make a Z-Fold card.  I've never made one before so this was a challenge for me.

To make a basic Z-Fold card cut your cardstock in 1/2 length-wise, so your cardstock will be 4.25" x 11".  Then you'll score at 2.75" and 5.5".  That will make the Z-fold card design.  Now just decorate!  You can really make some cool things w/ this type of fold.  If you head on over to the Paper Playtime Challenge blog you can see the many different designs.  I went basic since this is my first one.  :)

Here is my card closed:

Now Open:

This challenge will be going on for two weeks.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Peachy Keen Stamps.  LOVE Peachy Keen Stamps.  :)  So make sure you head on over there to participate!
