Another Z card fold tutorial!

Inspired by Meg Loven's post, I fell in love with this Z fold card.
I also blogged about this Z fold card earlier.
Here is my version of it.
You start with a piece of Basic Black that is 4-1/4" X 11", scored at 5-1/2"
 Using the largest framelit from the Lots of Labels Framelits, cut out the front of the card and then another one of the same size of Calypso Coral. Then, using the next size down, cut a label out of Whisper White.
 Using a piece of Whisper White measuring 8-1/2" X 2-3/4" and score it at 2-3/4" from both ends.
 You can fold it into a Z so it looks like this:
 Using the "You've Got This" stamp set, I stamped the image and words in Basic Black ink on the Whisper White label.  
Then, I used the Aqua Painters to color the flower, using the Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Wild Wasabi ink. I squeezed the ink pad while it was closed and then opened the pad up like the picture below to use it as a painter's palette.  I dip the Aqua Painter in the ink and "paint" the image.  To change colors, you just "clear it out" on a piece of scratch paper until the water runs clear and then use a different color.
Next, I adhered the stamped image to the Calypso Coral piece I cut out earlier.
 Then, adhere the layered label on top of the Z fold you folded earlier like this:
 And this is how the card should look:
I love how the label fits right into the front frame and then it can stand on its own.
Thank you for checking in!
