    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Cutupgal asked: "I saw a card that was done in Z fold. Do you have instructions?
    A: We don't have a basic Z-fold tutorial yet, but we have two related tutorials:

    Swinging Z-Fold Card and

    Double Z-Fold Card

    For the regular Z-Fold card, check the Swinging Z-Fold tutorial and just don't cut a shape in the swing part. I hope this helps. Have a wonderful week!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Cindy has a suggestion for the Scalloped Circle Tree: "Maybe add little rustic beads the same color as Walnut Distress Inks rather than glue might help and ink distress the skewer too.
