To begin with, you should have your base card that was created in part 1. Now you are ready to decorate. I cut my first solid piece of card stock the same size as my base, so my angle is aligned. If you are not making an angle on your Z-fold and you are keeping your top straight then you do not have to do this step. I then cut my decorative piece of paper so the angle is the same. Score the lines the same as the base. Mine are: 3 1/4" and 6 3/4".
Next, I cut on the score lines vertically. You will need to trim one side of each piece and the bottom, so it is slightly smaller than the base. I like to see the various colors when layering. Also, you will want to save the bottom strips you trim off to decorate the envelope.
