Stampin' Fancy Friday & Fancy Folds

The challenge theme this month for anyone who would like to stamp along with the Stampin' Fancy Friday Team is "fancy folds."`  I thought it would be fun to fold a strip of DSP into a series of box pleats to add some flair and dimension to my card.

I started with a Soft Seafood card base with a top fold and then layered a panel of textured vellum. For the box pleated detail I used two strips, glued end to end, of 2"x 6" 2019-2021 In Color DSP. First, I scored and pleated my paper then trimmed it to fit across the bottom of my card.

My favorite part of the card is the bunny and floral focal point and how they have been showcased with tall blades of grass.  I used images from Wildly Happy and Painted Poppies which I stamped with Basic Grey and then watercolored them with an Aquapainter and Bashful Blue, Soft Seafoam, and Highland Heather Inks.  For the tall grass I used the Friendly Silhouettes Dies.

To pull it all together I used the Painted Label Dies, Mint Macaron 1/8" Sheer Ribbon, the Classic Label Punch, and a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper.
