Christmas in July: Iris Folding Card


Iris Folding is another great way to play with fabulous papers. The multi-patterned is washi paper. Because you work from the back side of the design, the surprise element isn't really known until you unstick the pattern that has been covering up the front until completion.

Note: This design is © Valila Reynolds 2003.

As you know, I've just started working with this technique. I love this card and I'm happy to hear that you use a pattern. Do you ever free-hand? I'd get confused without the pattern, I think.
