Happy Easter Saturday to you!

Its Saturday so that means another Utah Divas Sketch Challenge and boy was this weeks one a challenge!

Well the sketch in itself wasn’t hard to do but the challenge this time was to do Iris Folding. Now I love most things with paper crafting and card making but Iris Folding is not one of them – but I did persevere.

I wanted to stay with the Easter theme so thought a Iris Folded Cross would be good – well until I couldn’t find a template but the lovely Ruthie came to my rescue. I ended up drawing my own cross and used the pattern Ruthie sent me.

So here’s my card …

what do you think??

I’ve used the lovely Bella Bleu Designer Series Papers with Not Quite Navy card stock. I couldn’t help myself but use the Eyelet Border Punch as it is one of my favourites and just adds a touch of elegance.

I’ve used a build-a-brad for the centre focus on the cross and used the small flower from the Bella Blooms stamp set.

I have purposely left off a greeting. This way you could use this card as an Easter card or a Sympathy card.

I do hope you like what I have done – I suppose the Iris Folding looks OK but not sure I’d make too many using this technique.

Now its time for you to skip along to Lori’s lovely blog to see how she interpreted the sketch.


  1. well done Leonie,
    even tho we all detest this craft – you pulled it off amazingly!
    I think your design is the best of the bunch,
    a lot of the girls didn’t do the Iris fold challenge – So well Done!

  2. Wowsers Leonie, you did an amazing job on this challenge. I love the sketch and what you did with it. Iris folding in itself is a tedious and somewhat frustrating craft(but the results are amazing). The Cross looks brilliant in the Bella Bleu DSP. Fab job on all fronts…..go enjoy an egg!!! ooxx
