More Z Fold Cards -- Summer Wings and Fins

In my last post, I shared a baseball-themed Z-fold card with you.  Today, I have three more summer-y Z-fold cards to show you!  First up is the first Z-fold card I created:

This card features the Affectionately Yours Specialty Paper on the front panel and across the bottom of the inside panel, and the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape across the front Z strip and on the inside panel.  I love the copper accents in the sheet of paper I used on the front panel and on the washi tape used on the inside!  So pretty!  For the greeting, I used the new Layering Square Framelits to die cut a piece of Whisper White, and stamped a combination of sentiments from Watercolor Wings, which I also used to stamp on the Pool Party Butterfly Die Cut, and the Gift of Love hostess set ("Thank You").  The stamping is done in Night of Navy.  The butterflies were die cut using the coordinating Butterflies Thinlits and Bold Butterfly Framelits.  The die cut flowers were created with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.

Next, is this fantastic sea-themed card that Connie M. created:

She used the Seaside Shore stamp set for the fish and greetings -- and did some amazing fussy-cutting on those!!!  The waves on the front Z are made with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, and the embossed waves are made with the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,  Connie also added a bit of the By the Shore Designer Series Paper.   The scallops even have pearl jewels on them!   Love the textures and fun details in this card!  

And, last but not least is this beautiful double Z-fold card I received in my most recent swap with Marlene:

She also chose the Affectionately Yours Specialty Paper ofor her card.  A little hard to tell in the photos, but if you look closely, you will see that the front z-fold part has pop up butterflies -- a magic effect achieved with the help of small strips of Window Sheet.  The butterflies were die cut using the coordinating Butterflies ThinlitsBold Butterfly Framelits. Bitty Butterfly Punch, and Elegant Butterfly Punch.  Here flowers were created using the Petite Petals Punch. Marlene used the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set and Petite Petals set.

Hope you enjoyed these!!!
