Merry Christmas - Iris Folding
It's time for a biweekly visit to the Double Trouble Blog - Challenge #59, We are partnering with the Retro Rubber Stamp Challenge #137. To play along with both challenges, you are required to use a stamp - it may be rubber or clear but it must be at least one year old and identified in your blog post. Digital images are not permitted for this challenge.
I used an Iris Folding technique to create a triangular image using five patterned papers. Using the sketch, which I reversed, I added patterned paper to the right one-third of the card and then added the tree with foam tape. The snowflakes were stamped and embossed with gold EP for a bit of sparkle. (The snowflake stamps are from 2014.) Part of the sentiment was stamped and embossed. The word "Joy" was die cut and adhered to complete the sentiment. The star was punched and added to the treetop. The inside was decorated with coordinating cardstock and stamped, embossed snowflakes.
Note: Although this is known as Iris Folding, I did not use origami paper, but rather heavier patterned paper, meaning the paper strips were not folded and only a single thickness was used. Click HERE for a tutorial.
In addition to the aforementioned challenges, I found another that interested me, therefore, I am adding this card to Papercraft Challenges #59. Their theme is Geometric.
