Z-Fold Shirt Card

This was the funnest card to make and it is completely Cricutless!!! GASP!  I know, I was shocked when I got done that I hadn't used it.  I had watched a cool video over at Cardz TV that demo-ed the cutest little shirts for Father's Day Cards.  I have seen these on various other sites but didn't know how on earth they made them.  They are super easy and the shirt is folded out of a 4 x 6 piece of paper.  I started making them out of scraps and had so many that I got the idea for this card....the original poem I made for this card really fit the many shirt varieties I had made.   I needed lots of room so made it into a Z-fold card which was perfect for this project:

This is the card folded out flat

 This is the card  showing how the Z-fold works

Section one
Section two - the middle

 Section Three

The products I used are few and simple:
  • Cardstock from Core'dinations
  • Paper from K&Company, DCWV, Paper Adventures (used up some scraps hooray!)
  • Various stickers I have had for AGES!!!
  • Sentiment is my original work and done on the computer
  • metal buttons by Heidi Grace
That's pretty much all...very simple huh?  the hardest part of this card was getting the poem to fit on the pages (lol) and folding the first couple of shirts...after that  easy, breezy!  You can find this card in the following challenges:
thanks so much for taking the time to check out my love affair with paper crafting! Have a GREAT Father's Day weekend and stop by anytime!  Love you comments and followers!!
   UPDATE!!  Happy Father's Day and YES he LOVED the card!  Then he read all your wonderful comments...thanks so much for the support and hugs!!!  LOVE all you great crafters!!!

Hi Cindy! What a great idea for a card! I always struggle with cards for my hubby, so this will have to go on my list of ideas. :-) Thanks for joining me at my blog, I can't see my followers right now (hopefully Blogger will fix itself soon), so I'm glad you left me a comment. :-)
