Mercies on Friday - SNSDC96

Spring is almost here. And Korin is releasing some gorgeous NEW Spring Flower Block Digi Stamps today. Our SNS Digi Challenge for this week is to make a Z-Fold Card. They are very easy and fun to make.

I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock in half long-wise to get a 4 1/4" x 11" piece. I scored the card stock at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". Fold the card stock in half to make a normal card base, then fold the shorter piece back to make the Z-Fold card base. You can check out the tutorial over at Beate's Blog, Fresh and Fun.

I chose to use the Magnolia image for my card. Although I love tulips, I have to say that I adore this Magnolia Block Digi Stamp. I used some older Basic Grey pattern paper and add some fun stitching with my sewing machine. I added a few mini pearls in the center of the flower and some silver pearls at the bottom corner. Topped it off with some ribbon and a button.

Here is the inside of the card with a sentiment from the new Be Encouraged set also being released as a Digi set today. You can click on the image to see a larger version.

I hope you will join us in this fun challenge. There is a chance to win some FREE Digis. Check out all the details over at the Sweet N Sassy Digi Challenge Blog. And take a look at what all of the other design team members have done for the challenge. Make sure you visit each blog and leave a comment for a chance to win some free digi stamps.

This is so pretty and feminine, and yes, it does say Spring is coming! I love how you coloured the magnolia to make it look so delicate - the papers and embellishments complement it so well.
