A new technique!?!
Christmas is now officially over, for a couple of months at least!
Todays card is the result of me playing with my score-pal and making a lot of lines and folding. I alternatively scored at 1cm and 2cm gaps I then pleated these pieces to make this, navy blue, backing. Hopefully from this picture you can see the folding and pleating.
To secure the pleats I cut a piece of card, in the same col,our, the size of the folded piece and adhered the folds to this (using double sided tape)
Next step I glued this onto the front of a hand cut card blank after tying a simple white ribbon around the front and tied a bow.
Finally I die cut some ivy swirls from Joanna Sheen signature dies, edged them with blue ink and added them across the front. A couple of inked flowers , blue gems and finished.
I'm sure someone has come up with this technique however its new to me!
