Splitcoast Tutorial: Pleated Skirt Fold

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a sweet and simple one - it's a Pleated Skirt Fold, and it's a cute and easy way to add a girly touch to a card front.

Because the folded strip is 3" wide, it was easy to cut a 12" piece of paper into multiple strips to make several cards at once - I made 4 identical cards in a really short amount of time.

I used one of my stamps, Brush Border, for a quick cross panel, then added some from a palette using a Distress marker and whatever was left on the palette from the last project. ;) The sentiment is from one of my clear sets, Warm Fuzzies Sentiments.

I used my fingers to fluff up the pleats a bit for an upgraded version - I can hand-deliver this one. The bow was tied with my Bow-Easy.

Hope you're having a great week!

Thanks for stopping by!
