This month we have one guest blog hopper, Jennifer Knape Cerizo. Make sure to check out her blog!
So let’s jump right in. Here is the card I created.
I wanted to try the double pleated folding technique. After I got the dimensions, it really was very easy. You start with a piece of double sided paper cut to 5 x 10. Then you score the paper at 1, 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 3, 4, 4 1/2, 5 1/2, 6, 7, 7 1/2, 8 1/2 and 9. You then fold the score lines like a fan. Then you cut from the middle of the short side to the top of the 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 score lines on each side, and you end up with a diamond shape.
I like the techinique, but I think if I did it again, I would use more patterned paper or solid paper.
For my project, I decided to create a very simple using the Gift Card Sleeve.
Here it is:
Stamp: Greeting Trends, Yummy Wishes
Paper: Watermelon Fusion, Whip Cream, Celebrate You Pattern Paper
Ink: Watermelon Fusion, Black Licorice
Dies: Gift Card Sleeve
Accessories: Pearls, Watermelon Fusion Satin Ribbon
