I fully intended to have posted before now, but life got in the way!!
This is a card I made for a swap in a group of New Zealander cardmakers. The brief was to make a card using the 'double pleat' technique. A tutorial is here.
Again I needed double sided paper, but this time I did not need a full sheet.
The contrast between the patterns was not as great as I thought when I folded it, so I sponged the edge of the exposed side with Tea Die D.I.
The image I used as a focal point on the band, made of two ribbons, was from a magazine. It was stamped in Rich Cocoa Ink and coloured with polychromo pencils, and die cut with a S/B oval. The hello was embossed with platinum embossing powder.
After layering the folded panel and ribbon band onto the purple background I them placed it all onto a soft green panel, and added the sparkly punched dragonflies.
