Today's card features the coordinating dies for the Coming Home stamp set. I have also updated a technique that I haven't used in a very long time Iris Folding.
My simplified version is made using simple narrow strips of patterned paper layered behind an appature.
I used the largest house die and cut the appature in the centre of a piece of white card. Next I used an embossing filder and embossed the white piece then on the reverse placed adhesive tape all around the appature.
I then cut narrow strips of patterned paper called Trimming the Town from Stampin' Up!. I stuck them at an angel starting from one side and continued until the appature was covered.
To finish the card I cut the appature again but in red cardstock. I then drew around the die lightly in pencil and cut to create a small frame. I used this to highlight the appature.
Iris Folding is a great technique but my faux version is much easier. It's not the same but I do like the effect 😊 Do you?
