The next card I have is a fancy fold called Double 'Z' Joy Fold. I love how special looks, but it is very easy to make. I have used the image of the dancing lady on this one, which I have coloured with the new Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.
The base layer of the card is Melon Mambo and the top layer is thick Whisper White. I've added the small floral design from the Brights Designer Paper Stack to the inside of the base. The coloured art piece has been adhered to a Basic Black mat with a trim from the Flourish Thinlits dies on the left edge. You can see I've also stamped the envelope, using the floral cluster from the 'Birthday Blossoms' stamp set.
This is the card open, where you can see the other two panels. The middle panel has the leaf die cut from the Flourish Thinlits and the black bird die cut from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits. For the end panel, I have used the brushstroke stamp (stamped off) as a background for the Live, Laugh, Love sentiment.
The writing panel is on the reverse side of the base and I have used the floral cluster from the 'Birthday Blossoms' set on the corners with the greeting also coming from the same stamp set. I've used the Watercolour Pencils to shade the banner on the greeting and finished with another black bird in the corner. You can get a tutorial for this fancy fold card in my Tutorial Store here.

My final project uses the image of the lady with the umbrella and the paper piecing and reflection techniques. Paper piecing is a great option for any line images as an alternative to colouring. I suggest using paper with a small design for images of this size. I have used the Watercolour Pencils to add a little colour to the umbrella and the reflection.
The base card is Sweet Sugarplum stamped with the leaf from the Sale-a-bration stamp set 'Avant Garden' in Versamark ink. The art piece has been matted onto Rich Razzleberry card stock with the vanilla Lace Trim on the edge. The greeting has been die cut with the Tags & Labels Framelits and finished with a tiny flower from the (retired) Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack.
For the inside, I've finished it with a strip of washi from the Playful Palette set and the flower from 'Avant Garden' stamped in Rich Razzleberry.
