Irish Folding


Hello and thanks for dropping in. Been playing with the computer more today than card making. But we downloaded Skype, got our friends listed, and tried it out with 2 so far. It's gonna be a hoot! My card today is one using the Irish Fold. I cut the center out using Spellbinders round nestie and then placed the hole over the pattern. Oh yeah, upside down so I could tape the paper onto the back. I cut 5 different strips of paper 1' and folded them not quite in half. The pattern is numbered so I just kept turning it taping the paper until it was finished. In the center I placed a flower I stamped from Nina Brackett's "bug me anytime" stamp set. Then I stamped out a butterfly from Martha Stewart, glittered it and popped it on, I use more scrap paper and punched the borders out, then placed pearls down them. I hope you like my card and yall come back! A very great web site to get free patterns is www.irisfoldingifcrafters.com Go check them out!
