first attempt at technique of iris-folding

Sorry for bragging, but I just love how this card turned out. The focal piece is the 4 patterned papers that have been done in 7-8 times around. I used approx 2 1/2" x 1" strips folded lengthwise. This card took about 4-5 hours to create from absolute start to finish. The time included making a template for the "iris" strips (in case I ever want to do this again!) and a template for the flower/sunburst window frame.

The cut-out sunburst flower was used as a stencil to create one of the layered floral embellishments on the inside layout. The small one was used a small scalloped circle punch. (Thanks to HOTP papers from different sets that coordinated well for this card project. Other PW/HOTP items include: basic white greeting card and envelope, ruby red brads, pink vellum and white lace/lattice border stickers, foam square adhesives, coral color paper rose.)


  1. Cute Iris folding, Becca. I like the touch of the flower in the center.

  2. Cheryl: thanks for the feedback! I was very tempted to keep the card for myself, but I resisted the urge! (Fellow PWMB crafter Heather received it for the March card swap.)


My heartfelt thanks for visiting my blog.
