Christmas Train Z Fold Card

Today I’m sharing a festive Christmas train Z Fold card.  I love the Rubbernecker Stamps Train Set and thought it would be fun to create a scene with the train pulling into the station on a z fold card.  The train is taking some very sharp turns around those corners but manages to stay on the track. LOL!   The station was created using the Cabin set and the scenery was created using the Evergreen Trees, Pine Tree Forest and Deckle Hills and the snowy background was made using the Splatter Background.  The train was decorated using the Tiny Leaves and Tiny Flower Buds and the scene was finished using the Small Birds.  I used The Paper Cut Z Fold Box Card kit. for the card base.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this Christmas train z fold card.

Card Base and Box

  • Use the pre-scored Z fold card kit to create the base.
  • Cut 2 2.5″ x 4.00″ blue layers and one 5.25″ x 4.00″ blue layer.
  • Stamp the snowy background on the blue layers using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut the 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer using the strip from the kit.  Note:  place the strip of white cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Score the front Deckle Hills layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Cute an additional 11.00 x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer, score it at 2.75″ and 5.50″ and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the Deckle Hills layer and attach to the card base.
  • Cut three Deckle Hill ground layers 2.75″ x 1.00″″ and and attach to the insert strips from the kit using double stick tape. 
  • Score the insert layers at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.

The Evergreen Trees

  • Cut several sections of Evergreen Trees using green cardstock.
  • Stamp the snowy background on the trees using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Attach trees to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach trees to the card box inserts using glossy accents.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this festive Christmas train z fold card.

Assemble the Train and Track

  • Cut the train pieces out in the colors of your choice.
  • Follow the step by step directions below. These directions will live on the Rubbernecker store site with the train link.
  • I used glossy accents, rolled glue dots and mounting tape to assemble and attach all the pieces.
  • I modified one of the train cars by using the top roof portion of the engine housing to create a caboose.
  • Decorate the train using tiny holly leaves and tiny flowers.
  • Attach the train sections to track and snow layers using glossy accents.

Finish the scene by attaching the cardinals to the card base using small pieces of mounting tape.

Snowy Z Fold Card

My project today is a snowy Z Fold card with a night sky background and all white images.  I added touches of brown on the deer so they would stand out in the trees.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Tree Panel #3, Evergreen Trees, Deer Family, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1 and Splatter Background.  The black card base was made using The Paper Cut Z Fold Box Card Kit

Come see how I made this snowy z fold card with night sky.

Snowy Z Fold Card Base and Tree Base

  • Use the black pre-scored Z Fold card kit to create the base.
  • Stamp the Splatter Background all the way across the black card base using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Cut four Tree Panel #3, trim the frames to fit together and attach them together using glossy accents. Note:  It took a bit of figuring to fit the panels together so it looked like a continuous forest background but I like how ti turned out.
  • Apply double stick tape to the tree frame border and attach it to the card base.

The Snow Layers and Box Inserts

  • Cut the 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer using white cardstock.  Note:  place the white cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Cute an additional 11.00 x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer, score it at 2.75″ and 5.50″ and attach it to the card base.
  • Score the front Deckle Hills layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the Deckle Hills layer and attach to the card base.
  • Cut three Deckle Hill ground layers 2.75″ x 1.00″″ and and attach to the insert strips using double stick tape. 
  • Score the insert layers at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.

Come see how I made this pretty snowy z fold card with night sky.

The Evergreen Trees

  • Cut three sets of evergreen trees using white cardstock.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of several trees and attach to the card base
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of several trees and attach them to the front of the insert layers to fill in the box.

The Deer Family

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply a light layer of Antique Linen ink to the deer antlers, ears and back using a mini applicator.
  • Use a gentle touch to apply a very light layer of Vintage Photo ink to the deer to add a bit of darker shading. Note:  I wanted the deer to maintain a mostly white body with just touches of brown.
  • Attach the large deer to the front card base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Apply glossy accents to the front of the legs of the other two deer and attach them to the snow layers.

Come see how I made this lovely snowy z fold card with night sky.

Snowy Z Fold Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a snowy Z Fold Christmas Card with a pretty house decorated for the holidays and deer playing in the trees in the front yard.  I modified the Rubbernecker Stamps Spooky House (I love that house) and paired it with the Tree in Oval, Pine Tree Forest, Wildlife, Deckle Hills, Borders #3, Greenery #1 and Small Birds.  I used the Splatter Background to apply snow to all the trees. 

Come see how I made my scenic Z Fold Christmas card.

Card Base and Box

  • Use the pre-scored Easel card kit to create the base.
  • Use the Borders die to cut the decorative eyelet border on both sides of the card base.
  • Cut the 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer using the strip from the kits.  Note:  place the strip of white cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Cute an additional 11.00 x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer, score it at 2.75″ and 5.50″ and attach it to the card base.
  • Score the front Deckle Hills layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the Deckle Hills layer and attach to the card base.
  • Cut three Deckle Hill ground layers 2.75″ x 1.00″″ and and attach to the insert strips from the kit using double stick tape. 
  • Score the insert layers at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.

The Trees

  • Cut three Trees in Oval and several Pine Tree Forest sections using green cardstock. Note:  I cut pieces of cardstock just large enough for cutting the large tree out of the frame. 
  • Gently rub the Magic Embossing Bag over all the trees to help remove static from the cardstock.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp all the trees.
  • Apply white embossing powder to the trees and heat with the heat gun.
  • Tuck the Pine Tree Forest sections in behind the snow layers on the back and side card base and attach using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach two of the larger trees to the front panel of the card base with mounting tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the largest tree and attach to the back wall of the card base using three layers of mounting tape. Note:  I attached the large tree directly over the smaller line of trees on the card base.  I liked that the larger and smaller trees filled the space..

Come see how I made my winter Z Fold Christmas card.

The House

  • Cut the house using blue cardstock and the roof sections using white cardstock.
  • To modify the house cut off the tall pointed roof section on the left side.
  • Attach the white roof sections to the house using strips of rolled up double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Attach the windows and doors to the house using Connect glue.   Note:  I like to use the Connect glue to attach small items like the windows because it dries perfectly clear and does not leave a shine like glossy accents.  Glossy Accents is still my glue of choice when attach items like foliage and flowers, etc. 
  • Cut several sections of greenery using green cardstock.
  • Use greenery tips to create the window decorations and roof top wreath and attach them using glossy accents.
  • Punch out red 1/8″ circles and attach them to the wreath and window decorations using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the house, tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base.

The Deer, Greenery, Birds and Falling Snow

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink over the whole body of the deer using a mini applicator.
  • Add darker shading to the deer body and antlers using Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator.
  • Apply a good amount of glossy accents to the legs of the left facing deer and attach to the snow layer.
  • Tuck the left facing deer in behind the snow layer and attach to the tree using a piece of mounting tape. 
  • Apply glossy accents to small pieces of greenery and attach them in behind the snow layers.
  • Use small pieces of mounting tape to attach several red birds to the card base.
  • Finish the scene by attaching small round circles to the card base and house using Connect glue to create falling snow.  Note:  I save all the small circles that come out of the decorative dies like the ones from the eyelet border.  I love how the popped up circles add a little bit of dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my winter Z Fold Christmas card.  I am having so much fun making these Z fold cards and challenge myself each time to make them more dimensional and more interesting.  This may be my favorite but then again I say that to myself each time I finish a card.  LOL!  You can more of my Z Fold cards here.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day. 

Fall Z Fold Card Ideas

Today I’m sharing fall Z Fold Card ideas using several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I created a dimensional corn field scene surrounded by a picket fence and colorful fall trees.  The rusty flatbed truck is loaded down with cornstalks and the crows are circling and are totally ignoring all the cats playing in the fields.  Any of the fall components of this card are fun jumping off ideas for fall cards.  For this card I used the Flatbed Truck, Winter Tree, Tiny Leaves, Deckle Hills, Corn Stalks, Picket Fence, Cats, Small Birds and Cart Accessories #2

Come over to my blog for fall Z fold card ideas.

The Z Fold Card Base

  • Use the pre-scored Easel card kit to create the base.
  • Cut 2 2.5″ x 4.00″  and one 5.25″ x 4.00″ layer, apply clouds using Tumbled Glass ink, cloud stencil and ink blending tool and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut 2 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layers using green cardstock. Note:  place the strip of green cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Cut four sections of the Picket Fence, attach them together using glossy accents and attach them to the card base.
  • Score one grass layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″ and the second at 2.75″ and 5.50″.
  • Attach one grass layer to the card base using double stick tape.

The Z Fold Box and Inserts

  • Attach the front grass layer to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut four grass layers 3.75″ x 1.50″ and score at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Cut several sections of cornstalks and attach them to the grass layers using glossy accents.  Note: I attached a few pieces of yellow sections to the stalks with glossy accents to create the appearance of fresh corn.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.

 

Come over to my blog for colorful fall z fold card ideas.

The Fall Trees

  • Cut the trees using woodgrain cardstock and the leaves using orange, red, yellow and green cardstock.
  • Use Antique Linen to color the tree and heat set the ink.
  • Apply Spiced Marmalade to the orange leaves,  Wild Honey to the yellow leaves and Fired Brick to the red leaves using mini applicators to add more depth of color.
  • Attach the leaves to the branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply rolled glue dots to the back of several leaves and mounting tape to the tree trunks and tuck them in behind the fence sections and attach to the card base,  Note:  I cut off a portion of the winter tree to create a smaller tree and folded it in the middle so it would fit in and add interest to the center of the card.

The Truck

  • Cut the truck sections using red, woodgrain and black cardstock.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge ink to the truck body to distress.
  • Attach the fender to the front of the truck using mounting tape.
  • Apply glossy accents to the truck rails and attach to the truck.
  • Secure the tires and wheels to the truck using glossy accents.
  • Attach several pieces of cornstalk to the truck bed using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the truck and attach it to the front grass layer.

The Finishing Elements

  • Cut a crate using woodgrain cardstock and corn sections using yellow cardstock, attach the together using glossy accents and attach to the grass layer using double stick tape.
  • Cut a few small pumpkins using yellow cardstock, color them using Spiced Marmalade ink and a mini applicator and tuck them in behind the grass sections.
  • Cut birds using black cardstock and attach them in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Cut the cats using white cardstock and color the body parts using a black Copic Marker.
  • Attach the cats in the scene using mounting tape.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project with fall Z Fold card ideas.  I know the sizing of the cats are almost as big as the truck but I couldn’t resist the cartoony appearance.  I thought they added so much fun and interest to the scene.  The cat standing on the fence in the center section is definitely trying to get that crow.  You can check out my Z Fold card category as well as this Pinterest fall Z Fold card link for more inspiration. 

Christmas House Z Fold Box Card

Good Tuesday morning.  Today I’m sharing a Christmas House Z Fold Box card with lots of pretty birch and evergreen trees.  The red truck is delivering the Christmas tree and I used the red birds to draw the eye up from the full ground base and to add interest.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Spooky House (modified), Birch Forest, Tabbed Birch Trees, Tree in Oval, Truck, Pine Tree Forest, Small Birds, Greenery #1, Tiny Leaves and Deckle Hills.

Come over to my blog and check out how I made this Z Fold Box Christmas house and truck card.

Card Base and Box

  • Use the pre-scored Easel card kit to create the base.
  • Cut 2 2.5″ x 4.00″ blue layers  and one 5.25″ x 4.00″ layer and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut and 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer using white cardstock. Note:  place the strip of white cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Score the Deckle Hills layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the Deckle Hills layer and attach to the card base.
  • Cut four ground layers 3.75″ x 1.50″ and score at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.

The Truck

  • Cut the truck sections using red and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces together using rolled double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Attach the tiny accessory pieces using glossy accents.
  • Attach two tiny holly leaves to the truck door using glossy accents.

The Trees

  • Cut a  Birch Forest section and Tabbed Birch Trees using white cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the birch trees and attach them to the card base. Note:  I cut the Birch Forest into two sections.  I wanted some of the trees to look attached and the others to look separate.
  • Cut four Tree in Oval sections and cut the trees away from the frame.
  • Attach two of the trees to the scene using strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut two of the trees to fit inside the truck bed and attach with double stick tape.
  • Cut a few sections of the Pine Tree Forest and tuck them around the scene and attach with mounting tape and glossy accents.

Come over to my blog and check out how I made this colorful Z Fold Box Christmas house and truck card.

The House

  • Cut the house using brown cardstock and the roof sections using white cardstock.
  • To modify the house I cut off the tall pointed roof section on the left side and the pointed outer roof section on the right side.
  • Attach the white roof sections to the house using strips of rolled up double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Attach the windows and doors to the house using glossy accents. 
  • Cut several sections of greenery using green cardstock.
  • Use greenery tips to create the window decorations and roof top wreath and attach them using glossy accents.
  • Punch out red 1/8″ circles and attach them to the wreath and window decorations using glossy accents.

Finish the Scene

  • Attach a double layer strip of cardstock to the back of the house using double stick tape and attach the whole house to one of the box insert layers using double stick tape.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the truck and attach it to the front snow layer.
  • Cut several red birds and attach them in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come over to my blog and check out how I made this pretty Z Fold Box Christmas house and truck card.

I had so much fun making this Christmas House Z Fold Box card.  I especially love that the Spooky House can be so easily modified to look like a normal house.  I think it looks so cute nestled in the trees.  Here is a Pinterest link for more Christmas Z Fold Box cards if you would like more inspiration.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have an enjoyable day.

Z Fold Box Spooky House Halloween Card

Today I’m sharing a Z Fold Box spooky house Halloween card made using several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I have so much fun creating Z Fold cards because they allow for so much more dimensional landscape than a regular flat card front.  For this project I used the Spooky House, Spooky Tree, Wrought Iron Fence, Deckle Hills, Ghosts, Witches and Pumpkins and Ivy die sets.

Come see how I made this Z Fold Box Halloween card.

Card Base and Box

  • Use the pre-scored Easel card kit to create the base.
  • Cut 2 2.5″ x 4.00″ purple layers  and one 5.25″ x 4.00″ layer and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut and 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer using green cardstock. Note:  place the strip of green cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine.  Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
  • Score the grass layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
  • Cut four sections of the wrought iron fence and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Measure and cut a strip of fence to fit across the front portion of the grass layer, apply glossy accents to the front of the fence and tuck it in behind the grass layer and attach.
  • Measure and cut two small fence sections to fit on the box side and card back, tuck in behind the grass and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the grass layer and attach to the card base.
  • Cut four grass layers 3.75″ x 1.50″ and score at .50″ on each end.  Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
  • Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box

The Spooky House

  • Cut the house using lavender and light green cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the roof sections and attach to the house.
  • Apply Gina K Connect Glue to the back of the windows and door sections and attach to the house.  Note:  I like to use the Connect glue to attach small pieces like the windows because it dries clear.  I still prefer to use Glossy Accents when attaching pieces together like flowers, etc. 
  • Cut a piece of scrap lavender cardstock to fit on the back of the house to use to secure it to the inner grassy layer and attach the scrap layer and house together using double stick tape.
  • Apply several strips of double stick tape to the front of the bottom support section of the house and attach it to the last grass insert layer.

 The Spooky Scene Parts and Pieces

  • Cut four Spooky Trees. 
  • Score one of the trees right down the middle and fold in half.
  • Apply double stick tape to the left side of the fold and attach it to the inner section of the card base.  Make sure the branches on the right side of the tree show in front of the house.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of two of the trees and attach one to the front section and one to the back section of the card base.
  • Cut the fourth tree apart and attach the branches to the grass inserts using glossy accents.
  • Cut several pumpkins, apply Spiced Marmalade ink using a mini applicator and color the stem using a brown makrer. 
  • Draw faces on the pumpkins using a black multi-liner marker.
  • Form the pumpkins slightly with your fingers and attach to the grass sections using strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut a moon circle, attach to the back card base using mounting tape and apply shimmer using a shimmer pen.
  • Attach a flying witch to the moon using mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching a few white ghosts to the scene and attach using pieces of mounting tape.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Z Fold Box Halloween card.  It has lots of parts and pieces and was so much fun to make.  Check out my Z Fold Card Category if you would like more inspiration.  And for more inspiration check out the Pinterest Z Fold Card pages.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a good weekend.  Here in Florida we are bracing for Hurricane Dorian so I may not be able to post for a while if we lose power.  Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
