I got it into my head yesterday morning to make a card with pleats.
Don't ask how the mind works it just does strange things at times!
The designer paper I used was very vintage to say the least. The upc code says
Autumn Leaves 2004!!!!
Well I guess this paper hung around long enough to gather the most vintage dust indeed!
To make the pleats I cut the 12x12 paper to a 2 inch strip then scored it at 1/2 inch
intervals across the length.
Side view of the pleats.
I also took a bottom shot so you could see how I pleated the paper.
Can't say that this is how I wanted it to turn out, but I'm happy with it.
The inside card was also layered with the same paper as the pleats.
Stamp set by See-D's called Victorian Dressmaker. The
greeting Sewing Mends the Soul by TPC Studio Vintage Treads.
I can thank my friends because Kat got me the stamp set, and Connie
sent me a large jar of ribbon years ago, and that is where the black ribbon came from.
The black and red paper button is from the what-knot drawer.
And I bet you all saw right away that I used the "power of three". Three inks
and three stamps for the focal point.
Had a great day yesterday. Went out on my own and did some shopping.
Khol's was having a good sale and I bought three sweaters, one top, and a pair of jeans.
All for 53 bucks. I had a 30% off coupon. Which made it nice.
Then I stopped by Pat Catan's and picked up the rest of the magnet sheets to finish the
I found something pretty cool at Catan's and they were only 25 cents each. That is another story.
I'll be posting that tomorrow.
