Day 29, Letter "Z" - Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas

      Last letter of the alphabet and tomorrow is the last day of Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas.  "Z" is another one of those difficult prompts because very few Z words relate easily to Christmas (Zoo, Zebra, Zany, Zipper - see what I mean?)  So, I used the tutorial at Beccy's and made a Double Z Fold Card.

     The candy cane image is from Beccy's Place and everything was done using up scraps, including the piece of CS on which the image was printed.

Here's a shot from the top showing the Z folds.

Colors came from the inspiration at 
We had to use only 2 of the colors and neutrals didn't count.
I chose red and green.

Colored with ProMarkers
   (I used 'Vanilla' instead of white on the candy canes so it would better match the beige in the papers)
Image cut with Die-namics stitched die
Paper scraps from Graphic 45
Folds were scored on Scor-Pal board

Really gorgeous candy cane image! I absolutely love your clever 'Z' fold design here too! Brilliantly done for all of the days my friend!

You've done an awesome job creating this double z-fold NC, it looks fabulous! Great selection of patterned paper, I especially like the holly design. I also like the way you've layered the image over the smaller "Z" section... when the card is folded it looks like a full front panel. Clever!
