Two cards, One challenge...





For the I Can Do It Challenge week 6 (last week) ,it was requested to create a card(s) with more than one fold.....I have never made a Z - fold card before, so I thought it was 'bout time to try my hands at it and this is the end result.
Above, you can see the finished front of the card, while below there is a glimpse of the opene fold....


 I must add that all items used here were part of my stash, therefore these cards also partake in the 100 cards for 100 day challenge were we are encouraged to use what we have.
I have to say that I purposely chose my most UNdesired c/s :Foliage Forest, and a sheet of 12x12 d/p from Costco...I just didn't know WHAT to do with these two papers that I have in my stash like forever, literally... Then I picked this stamp and it all clicked into place (first time I inked it as it was collecting dust,as many many of my other yet to be used sets....)



For my second card, I created a double-Z-fold
just to keep the theme going...*wink*
I wanted this card to be happy looking, as I was feeling just that inside, with such great weather we've been blessed with recently (well, today was totally a different story!)
I was thinking of my oldest grandson as I was
putting this card together...he is my sunshine (all of my G-kiddos have their own endearing
special nickname). He will definetely be the
recipient of this sunny card :o)
Below it shows the open version....
The sentiment inside is partially hidden here ...it says : 'You are My Sunshine' :o)

Here's the tutorial from SCS:
