I am continuing, for a bit longer, my stamping goal to make and work on cards that are CAS (Clean and Simple) and/or flat and mailable. I tend to use a lot of embellishments and layers and make it so expensive to mail cards. And that is the other part of the goal -- to actually mail them!
So with that in mind, I present you a slightly, almost flat, CAS design for the hop today!
For this month's card, I used three of the ribbons in the assortment and made my design using the Iris Twist (Iris Folding) Technique. An old technique, but one that recipients always love. All of my layers are held together with Scor-Tape.
You can find many patterns and instructions if you Google "Iris Folding Patterns". Pinterest also has oodles! I used this pattern for my card:I used Archival Black ink (SU!) for my sentiment (Sealed With Love by Stampin' Up!) and Hobby Lobby's Heavyweight White CS. The back panel is Glitter Green cardstock from DCWV. I added a few Doodlebug sequins for my simple embellishments.
Now off to Cheryl's blog, where you will have a feast for the eyes!
