Pleated Flower


This card is for today's Ways To Use It challenge on SCS...the challenge today was to use pleats on a card. I decided to try making a pleated 3-d flower...it took a few tries to get it right! The flower is a 1 1/4" x 12" strip of dp, then punched with the scallop edge punch, scored between each "hump" of the scallops, accordion folded, ends attached w/sticky strip, then "squashed" into flower shape...easy as that! The leaves are small oval punched, then run through the crimper. Stamps used are Pocket Silhouettes, and colors are Old Olive, Rose Red, Regal Rose. TFL!

Thank you for sharing the instructions. I can only hope that my attempt will be as half as good as yours.

I LOVE your blog and your card layouts!
