Today I am going to share with you one of the cards I received in the latest swap. This technique is the Box Pleat. You can see the card I had made using that technique here and there's a link to the easy instructions.
This card was made by Nancy. I love how she used the pleats on both sides of the card.
Here's a tip if you are planning on making a number of these cards. Score your big sheet of decorative paper first and then cut the strips. It will save you a lot of time. Oh and if you are thinking of buying something from Stampin' Up!, I highly recommend the "Botanical Builders" framelits. I have gotten a lot of miles out of those! I still like them and will be using them for a long time to come. And here's a tip when cutting out a flower. Use scrap pieces or cut your card stock to fit the item. Then load up your Sizzix plate with other flowers and parts so you get a bunch of extra pieces to have on hand. Why not run more than one or two things through at a time. Now when you need a quick card you will have the pieces or most of them! It saves a lot of time.
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
