Z-Fold Card

This Z-fold card was inspired by Hetty's card on her Craft Chaos website.
It stays upright so nicely. It reminds me of the easel card design

I used Hetty's dimensions for the paper pieces, except for the front-mine is wider.
Working from the bottom up the paper dimensions are:
4.25 x 5.5" for the brown base
4 x 10.5" for the long green layer that is folded in half crosswise, 
then folded up at the 1/4 mark.
I made a crease to find the "fold spot", then used my score board.
Front layer-
3.75 x 5" for the brown base
3.5 x 4.75" for the green paper.
Vary this according to your card design.

I added a separate piece for the inside, cutting it at a width so that the top part would be the "resting place" of the top.

Here it is closed. You can use your creativity to make your own variations! 
Thanks Hetty for your inspiration!

very nice result Laura and with your little changes to the design too. I always liked the easel-card concept.
