At Home with You Z Fold Card

Welcome Home! This creation was inspired by many, but I made it my own.  Many of the Z Fold cards have the narrow piece up higher on the card, but I needed this one to be the floor, so I moved it down. I think it works well don't you?

Cutting Instructions:
Cherry Cobbler card base - 5.5 x 8.5" score on 2-1/8" and 4-1/4"
Cherry Cobbler Z fold piece - 1-1/4" x 8.5"
Old Olive panels - 1) 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" and 2) 4" x 5-1/4"
Thick Whisper White panels - 1) 1-3/4" x 5-1/8" and 2) 3-7/8"x5-1/8"
Wood Textures DSP  - 1) 1-1/8"x 4-1/8" and 2 pieces 1-1/8" x 2"
Old Olive Banner - I used a 2" width of cardstock then cut to length once I stamped the sentiment on it.

Production Hints:
1. Use a small rectangle of So Saffron cardstock to give the illusion of a lighted home on the back of the door.
2. The two potted shrubs are hand colored with Stampin' Write Markers on the stanp before putting the stamp to paper.
3. The evergreen swag around the door has to be very carefully glued with Tombow Liquid Adhesive prior to attaching the door to the brick wall.
4. I colored the Pearl Jewels with the Cherry Cobbler marker to make them "berries or ornaments" prior to placement on the image.
