We are on Challenge #59 at Shopping Our Stash and we are asking you to make a card using "More than One Fold or Pleating". I wanted to give pleating a try and found a great tutorial on this technique on Splitcoaststampers. You can find the tutorial here.
All papers, ink, and stamps used on this card are from SU. I dug into my ever-increasing stash of DSP and came up with "Elegant Soiree" which features the colors Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Ivory. The stamp set used for this card is called "Bliss".
After pleating the patterned paper, I placed some crocheted trim across and tucked the ends behind. Next I added a string of adhesive backed pearls to the trim. Some individual pearls were also added to the stamped image and sentiment, which were stamped with Soft Suede ink and then cut out using oval Nestibilities and punches.
Off to stamp some more!
