Iris Folding Note

Hello Everyone!

For today I am writing to announce Make My Monday has another card challenge for you to try. Before I reveal the challenge here is my inspiration card.

Iris folding is an old technique but a good one! It packs a design punch
with really not too much work. For the inspiration card I decided to create a thank you note.
This week is all about...


For those of you who don't know what iris folding is all about click here and you will find a tutorial to help you out. 
Also here is a link for free iris folding patterns.


I am not sure if this is a true iris fold because there isn't an actual iris.
However the design idea is the same.

Just Us Girls: #324- Thank you

This card is actually very special. The paper I used is 30+ years old. It is the last of my Aunt's, now cousin's, wrapping paper from their store. It was given to my aunt as the last present wrapped with the remainder of the roll. I asked if I could use it saying: 'I will try to do it justice.' She looked at me and agreed. It is now displayed as a thank you note to her for a wonderful Christmas. I think, I hope, I did it justice.

If you haven't tried this technique before, then you are in for a treat. The surprise happens when you turn it over and see the results of your labor.

Well that is all for me! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit and I hope this prompts you to play along at Make My Monday. Enjoy, have fun, and see you soon!

All the best,
Shawna
