♥♥♥Happy Birthday Z-Fold ♥♥♥

Hello everyone, today im sharing a card I made for my Niece Shaelynn's 2nd Birthday. My card was also designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and Michelle's Scrapbooking and More!
Also on my card I used the SWEET cottageCutz dies from The Scrapping Cottage, and will list all products below.

For my card I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Blue Jay Seam Binding for the banner and for the little bows. I love using this stuff, its super easy to scrunch up, just by the pull of a thread. for the bows i decided to add some buttons. Im now down in my craft room where i have access to all my goodies down there and it sure does feel good to be back....:)

For my image I used the Sweet Girly Girl Buffy the Bunny from The Pixie Cottage Stamps, and she can be found here.

For the Happy Birthday I used stickers. Here is the inside of the card. I think i will be adding another CottageCutz Magnolia Doily to do some writing. I also have room to write on the inside panel if need be.

CottageCutz dies I used are:

♥♥♥CottageCutz Z-Tri fold♥♥♥

Hello everyone, here is another type of Z fold I made for The Scrapping Cottage, using CottageCutz sweet Kitty with Heart. This one is called the Z - Tri Fold card. 
I love using these AWESOME CottageCutz dies, they are super fun and EASY to use! For my card today I used the  Sweet CottageCutz Kitty w/heart
CottageCutz/Eyelet Pennants
CottageCutz/Plain Pennants
CottageCutz/Ornate Circle


On to my card. I made a Z Tri Fold, i love making different folds so ive been trying to make ones that i havent seen out there yet. These are super fun, and can be used for pictures and lots of writing. there is room for writing on the inside, and the back, you can even make pockets like ive done with my Z-Gate Folds too.
for my sweet CottageCutz kitty with heart i dusted her with antique linen distressed ink. Her bow is colored with copics. For the flowers I used the sweet whimsy bird and cage die to get the smaller flowers, i cut those out of dp from My Little Shoebox.


Im LOVING the CottageCutz Pennants, I have to say they are super FUN to use, and ive been using them on a lot of my cards lately. I also think they would be perfect for mini albums and layouts!! The stickers are from My Little Shoebox and so is my design paper! I used Really Reasonable Ribbons. Fiber is some I bought from a crafting friend. I added some pearls to the little flowers.

Here is my card Open! As you can see Plenty of room for writing, you can add some white card stock for the left side and write on it, also on the back too.


Im entering my card into these Challenges:
365 Cards Challenge/Stickets,ink, and design paper( my Happy is stickers,birthday ink)
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C128/Add some Green(around my flowers)
Simon Says Stamp/Lets play bingo(Flowers,Lace and Ribbon) My lace is right below in the Z panel

Sounds like they had a lot of fun :) My daughter was picked up in a Limo, they went out shopping, did a Photo shoot, and went to dinner, how fun is that??!!!!! I want a birthday like that.....LOL hehehehehehe im tease'n. anyways they did have a super fun time.

My daughter wanted me to keep this card pretty simple , no flowers, but loved the Really Reasonable Ribbon Leaves idea. I used the Leaves to hold together the banner that says HAPPY!
