Inset Double Z Fold Card - using Forever Blossoms - Video Tutorial

I used the gorgeous Forever Blossoms stamp set and the coordinating Cherry Blossoms dies for today's Video tutorial. This stamp set is so pretty!

I also combined it with the equally gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series paper which has Champagne foil accents on most of the sheets. 

I really enjoy making Double Z Fold cards. These ones were a little different because the second 'Z' is inset from the side edges.

All the mats have been layered onto Champagne Foil which adds such an elegance to the cards.

This is the top view.

Above is the card I created in the Video. The colour combination used is Pool Party, Petal Pink and Whisper White. I reversed the colours here to those on my first card. 

The sentiment was die cut using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies. The Champagne Foil mat behind it was cut out by hand. 

I used the new Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder on the larger front mats. This is another gorgeous one! 

The Rhinestones are our new ones in Champagne, a perfect finishing touch for this project.

This is how the card looks fully opened.

Because these are such special cards, I had to create coordinating boxes for them. I used my 6" Square Dimensional Card Box tutorial for this ... you can find the Video for it HERE.

The cards have two layers of Flowers, but I kept to one layer for the Boxes.

Here is the Video ...
