Z fold card tutorial with Vertical Greetings stamp set

I learned to make a Z fold card and loved the look of it. Here is the front of the card and the side view of the card when it is opened.
Start with 2 pieces of Calypso Coral measuring 4-1/4" x 5-1/2."
They are the front and back of the card.
Take a piece of Very Vanilla that measures 3" x 11" and score it at 4-1/2" and at 9"   This is the inside of the card.
Fold the inside of the card like the picture below:
Place adhesive on the short fold of the inside of the card.
Place it on the back of the card and lay the rest of the inside of the card so it is centered.
I should look like this when it is closed.
Then, place adhesive on the top of the inside of the card.
And place the top of the card on top, matching up the front and back of the card.
This is how the card looks like opened.
To decorate the front of the card, cut another piece of Very Vanilla measuring 1-1/4" x 5" Using the brush side of the Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi, and Early Espresso markers, and color the topiary stamp. Huff it a bit before you stamp it on the Very Vanilla cardstock.

This is the front of the card.  I adhered the stamped image using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also stamped the Thank You on the front using Early Espresso.
Here's another version of this card using Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo.

Thank you for checking in!
