Z Fold Cards

The Z fold card (or tri-fold card) is quite simple to do. All you need is a piece of A4 carstock, trim the length down to 11 1/4", then measure about 7cm or 2 3/4" up the short side, mark it and cut diagonally from that point to the opposite corner. Next you'll need to score it into thirds, so at 3 3/4" and 7 1/2", then fold in opposite directions and decorate.
This first one was my favourite...
Stamp set: Balloon Celebration & Sprinkles of Life
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach & Flirty Flamingo
Ink: Smoky Slate, White Craft, Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point & Sweet Sugarplum
Tools: Balloon Builder Punch, Tree Builder Punch & Duet Banner Punch
Techniques: Masking & Sponging 

The Duet Banner Punch had a nice arch shape to create the rainbow, but it's not very long so the rainbow length is limited.
By placing two masks made from the duet banner punch roughly an 8th inch apart, gently sponge colours of the rainbow, one at a time moving the masks in between every colour change.
