Happy Easter Saturday to you!
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 …
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.
