Maximizing Cardstock for a Simple Fun Fold Zany Zebra Card

For today’s card I used a new stamp set called Zany Zebras… it has three cute zebras and five sentiments which can be used for birthday & celebrations!  It can be used on projects for people of all ages! It is so cute!

For this card I used one 4″ x 5-1/4″ color cardstock and the Stitched So Sweetly dies create the three cardstock pieces needed for the card layout.  It’s a great way to maximize your cardstock.


For this card I used Melon Mambo Cardstock & Ink… you can use any color for this Fun Fold Card!
