Todays' card (set) was inspired by the lovely PATTY BENNETT.

Earlier this week I received an email saying Patty had designed a NEW  ' Z FOLD' CARD using Stampin' Up!® DSP.

Here is Patty's gorgeous  New  Z Fold Card

Here is the Card You Tube Tutorial by Patty Bennett.

So after looking at my limited amount of current DSP. I pulled out the wonderful 

6'x 6' Playful Palette Series Designer Paper Series.

As Patty says in her tutorial it is a lovely and very quick and easy card to make.

So I had a little brain storm - why not make a set of 4 cards? As there are 4 pages in the pack of the same design in different colours...
With doing this I am keeping my goals in tacked from the On Stage Local Event in April 2016 the # 6monthstampingoals by using my DSP. Yeah right!

I also wanted to keep the cards simple to make for others who are not familiar with Card making, could easily make 1 or all 4 of these cards completely themselves with not needing too much instruction and not needing many products.

So Let's see: - 1 Cut, Score and Glue using Cardstock and DSP
                          2 Punch out Flowers  using Cardstock and DSP
                          3 Stamp Sentiment    using matching colours of Cardstock..

Yeah that is at the EASY LEVEL..... Check 

The Envelopes were also decorated with 3 single punched Flowers that matches with the flowers on the card and added Dot of Bling. ( Bling is My Thing)  :) 

I was so pleased with my creation of Patty Bennetts' New Z Fold Card I have decided to go one step further and make a Gift Box for the 4 Card & Envelope Set.

I know the Gift Box is not for a Novice Card maker, but hey they have to start somewhere; and after seeing the Set with the box as a complete package, surely they will want to come back along soon to my Home for another Coffee and Stamp with Me Class.

The Gift Box will be my Next Blog.

Happy Stamping and Keep on Smiling !!!
