Crafting Forever with Pick a Pattern Paper Z Fold Card

Today I am showcasing a Kids Card for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. My eldest son recently turned 13 and this is a difficult age to make a card for especially boys. My son loves Art and drawing and that was the what I based his card one.


To make this card I started with the card base of Thick Whisper White which I made into a Z Fold card and added an extra flap on the back to allow it to stand up. I made a mix with my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry Reinker on my Silicone Craft Sheet mixed thoroughly and added a drop of Sahara Sand which I roughly mixed to give a grunge look and added to the card using the Pattern Party Decorative Mask brick design. While the paste was drying I chose the art design paper from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper and added it to the front flap of the card  along with a thin strip of Basic Black card stock to define the panel. I stamped the pens from the Crafting Forever stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink onto vellum to form the base for the Emerald Envy card stock 13 which I cut using the Large Number Framelits in the Big Shot and attached over the Brick paste to finish the card.

  7. Great card, Ellen and I love the layering of the numbers over the stamped pens and embossing paste. I think it's safe to say that a lot of us love the embossing paste! Your fancy fold is really eye-catching too.
