Z-fold card I tried for my sister-in-law's birthday. Very effective simple fold. Used scrap-book paper and gold sentiment stickers, and hand-made the flowers from paper punches. the large flower is 4 hearts joined together. Hand-embossed centre panel with stencil and stylus. No framelits, die-cuts or embossing machines :)
