Botanical Builders and Box Pleats Technique Card

Tonight is Terri's Technique Night and this is the card I made for the swap.  

I used the Botanical Builders for the flower and leaf.  I set it in place with a Dimensional and added a pearl in the middle.

I used the "Love Blossom" 6" x 6" decorative paper stack. There's lots of paper in that pack and I was glad I was able to use some of it for this card.  To make this technique you need an 11" strip so I just scored the 6" decorative papers and taped two together just at the right spot so you can't see it was added!!!  Now I had a long enough pleat for the card.  

I tried out this technique earlier this year.  You can see that card here.  You will find the link to the instructions there as well.  

For this card I used Blushing Bride for the top layer.  The base of the card is Whisper White.  Next I cut a paper doily in half and set it in place.  Then I made the pleats and set them just a hair on top of the doily.  I added a 1/2" strip of Garden Green card stock.  I added the flower using a Dimensional.  It was pretty simple to make and I was surprised at how quick all of these went together. 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
