I love iris folding. I think it is so cool, though it is complicated to do. I hadn't posted this until now since it was a swap that I had sent to a friend in Australia. I thought the the ribbon was perfect since it says Splish Splash. I had fun making this "bikini".
This is a card that I have made for Christmas with a Magnolia Santa image. On the inside of the card I have placed two different kinds of folders. This card will be perfect to give a teenage a blank CD on the left side and an iTunes gift card on the right, make a CD with romantic music to place in the left side and a gift card to a wine store or grocery store on the right so they can make a romantic dinner, or put a restaurant menu in the left pocket and a gift card to that restaurant in the right pocket. I believe the possibilities are endless. This would make a great gift to give at Christmas, or any other time depending on the design you place on the front of the card. I have so much fun making this card. I will decorate the inside more once I decide which of the above I am going to do!
Here is a card I made for Fall with the pinwheel technique. I just love the Fall papers that are out right now. The dsp on the left is a paper that I purchased. The paper on the right is made from a stamp and gold emossing powder.
I am 53 years young and have been crafting all of my life. I first starting doing crafts with my mom when I was 5. We did ceramics and entered them in state competitions. I won first place on several of my creations. I have done all different kinds of crafts but have become very addicted to cardmaking over the last 7 years. I love being able to design, create, and work with amazing people all over the world. I am now expanding my crafting to all sorts of things - most of which you will see on this blog over time.
