Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries

This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -


S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!

and ...


Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -


Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -

Thanks for stopping by,

This is fantastic!! I hope you will put together a tutorial for the z-fold/box card combination. I'm not good at doing the math on projects like this. I was pretty proud of myself last year, I decided to do a box card with Nativity die cuts and I decided the card need to be a little bigger. So... I just made the card bigger and made about thirty of these. Unfortunately I did not take into account that they needed to fit into an ENVELOPE!!! If you do a tutorial, I will be one of your first customers!!
Thanks for all your inspiration and all that you share!

Hi Silvia. It's taken two whole days to create, photograph and write a tutorial and I've finally finished. It will be available soon. Thanks, everyone for your lovely comments.
