Zany Zinnias

 The Simply Zinnias bundle is from the Online Exclusives. I love detailed flower dies, and this one is gorgeous! It's also great because it doesn't have as many fussy little pieces to cut out as some other sets have had.

The first card is a fun fold, made with Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Flirty Flamingo, and Lemon Lolly. The DSP is from SALE-A-BRATION.

This second card is a pull out with an easel attached to the back for display. I used the tutorial Barb Mulikin make a couple years ago, substituting the Simply Zinnias dies and adding an easel on the back. My easel is 2 x 8-1/2 scored at 3 in., 6 in., 7 in., and 8 inches. Fold the score lines the same way, and glue the 1/2" tab at the end. Then, fold the score line next to that the other direction so you have a mountain fold for the standing part. Glue it on to the back of the card and you're done.
