Who doesn't love this time of year? OK, I don't love the pollen and love bugs but we live close to Ocala, Florida and there are many horse ranches and ranges that we drive by. There are a few special paddocks that always house the newborn colts and mothers, or baby goats and moms. There are also calves that are running freely through some of the larger meadows. When I can, I stop by the road and just watch.
This is also the time of year to celebrate Easter, occasionally in March (as it was this year) but mostly in April.
Our newest Unicorn Challenge for April was to make a card for our favorite time of year. I saw a tutorial on making a Z-fold card and decided to use it for my family Easter cards. I like the 2 patterns of paper that compliment and the fact that my home made paper is visible when the card is opened. The butterfly is cut from a Cuttlebug Butterflies form, water-colored and embossed.
The butterfly is patterened after the American Painted Lady butterfly. The first picture shows the card as it will come out of the envelope. It really doesn't like staying closed :) The next 2 pictures show the Z-fold better.
Come and join in on the fun at Unicorn Challenges!
I'd like to give a shout out of thanks for the Z-Fold Pop Out Card to Sue Wisniewski. You can see the link for the tutorial by tapping on her name.
