Iris folding card




This card is for the my design team post over at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper

This is the first request I have had for a card with iris folding, I hope it's ok. I have used patterned paper from my stash and a free pattern off the internet. I die cut around the pattern with a Xcut die and then cut inside the pattern. I did my iris folding. I coloured the upper body and hair of the lady with Copic pens. I have used tiny pearls to make a necklace and bracelet. I have used the next size Xcut die in nesting set to cut a scalloped circle to mount my iris folding. I have matt and layered a 8x8in white card with patterned paper to match the dress and white card. On the top section of white card I have printed a personalised sentiment and I have embossed the bottom section of white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have put pink satin ribbon across the card on the join of the white card and then attached my iris folding. I have completed the card with flat backed pearls
