Fun Z-Fold Card with Plentiful Plants

Today I’m sharing Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Bundle with you in this fun Z Fold Card. I enjoy all the dies and the options one can create with this bundle and designer series paper. The DSP also offers some fun fussy cutting options.

This set will remain in the 2022 Annual Catalog as separate items, the 10% bundle discount will be gone though. The Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP is retiring May 2nd as well as the Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Cardstock while supplies last.

Let’s Get Started

  1. Fold card base on the score lines and burnish with Bone Folder.
  2. Adhere 4 strips of DSP to four-fold sections on left side of card base using one DSP for fold sections 1 & 4 and another one on sections 2 & 3.
  3. Adhere DSP to right side (section 5) of card base.
  4. Stamp greeting in Evening Evergreen Ink onto Basic White and leaves in Just Jade ink. Adhere to Just Jade card stock. Center this section and adhere to right side (section 5) of card base.
  5. Fold Cinnamon Cider card stock on score line and burnish with Bone Folder. Adhere DSP to each side after stamping greeting on one piece in Cajun Craze ink.
  6. Using the above Cinnamon Cider, adhere Stampin Seal or Tear and Tape to back side in two strips on the right side where it will attach to section 4. Lay this section directly over the Just Jade/Basic White section on right side of card base and then fold section 4 down onto tape.
  7. Apply tape to the back side of the Cinnamon Cider where it will attach to section 1 of card base. Close the card base so it is completely folded then fold the Cinnamon Cider over onto top of fold (section 1)
  8. Stamp and die cut pots and plants as desired. The table was cut out of Brass Foil with adhesive added to foil before cutting it out. Cut out 4 pots – 2 each in Cinnamon Cider and 2 in Sahara Sand. Attach 2 Sahara Sand and 1 Cinnamon Cider pot to right side under the greeting with glue dots. The pot on front left is stamped in Cajun Craze, the plant in Just Jade and adhered with a dimensional. The plant on the right-side pot was a die cut out of Evening Evergreen and adhered with glue dot.
  9. For the right side of Cinnamon Cider section – stamp pot in Cajun Craze. The white was trimmed from around the pot. Stamp plant in Garden Green Ink and die cut hanger out of Sahara Sand card stock. I used adhesive sheets on the Sahara Sand cardstock before cutting the hanging hanger. Add the hanger to pot and plant then adhere all to card.
  10. Attach Black Matte Dot to top of Sahara Sand holder. Adhere 2 Brushed Brass Butterflies as desired.
  11. Adhere piece of DSP to envelope flap with liquid glue around edge of flap only. Stamp a design on lower corner of envelope front.


And now you have a beautiful card featuring the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set to brighten someone’s day.

Happy Stamping!
