Too Much Time on my Hands
The ready Z Fold card from white card stock measures 6″ by 7 1/2″. To prepare the card base, cut a smooth white cardstock measuring 12″ by 7 1/2″. Score the longer side first at 3″ and next at 6″. Crease and fold the card neatly. Choose the papers from the designer paper collection and chop the paper panels for all front and back panels. Make sure the panels are 1/16″ smaller so that it creates a delicate border all around the card base. The second Z - fold measures 4 1/2" by 11"., scored first at 5" and then at 8". Crease the panel and adhere to it as shown. Choose the pattern papers and cover all the panels like the previous one making a delicate border on all sides by 1/16".
To build the front shaker window of the card, stamp one main image of Elegant Moments Timepiece Stamp Set with black and cut open the center window as shown using its coordinating die set. Color the outer image and the center image separately using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Glue the acetate sheet from behind. Cut 6-8 die-cuts without stamping and stack them together using glue. Glue the colored image and build the shaker window. To close the window, cut one solid die-cut and glue the center-colored image in the center. Fill shaker elements and close the window by gluing the solid die cut at the back.
