Make It Monday #43, on Friday

 Well, here I am as usual, running late on Make it Monday.  Still, a late entry is better than none at all, right?  So, I needed a birthday card, and this week's Make it Monday is about pleated ribbon.  Here's how I used it:


This card is a little different from my usual standard A2 card.  I decided to do a Double Z fold card as ably demonstrated by Beate Johns in this tutorial.  The stamp sets used were PTI's Year Of Flowers: Collection (sweet pea image), and Birthday Basics (inside greetings).  The image was colored with Copic markers, die cut with Spellbinders' Petite Oval, and matted with Petite Scalloped Oval.  The patterned paper is PTI's Text Style 2009 Bitty Dot Basics, which was punched with Spellbinders' Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities.  The background cardstock is a retired SU one, Vintage Violet.  The white seam binding was ruched along a strip of Scor-Tape adhered to a white strip of paper.  They are hard to see, but there are tiny pearls nestled in the ruching.  A purple button from my stash finished it off.  And here's the inside:


And that's all for now--thanks for looking and have a nice day!

  1. Beautiful, Cyndie! Too bad the violet card stock is a retired color-looks great used here. Your Copic coloring and layers all fit together to make an outstanding card. :-)

  6. Between you and me Cyndie, I far prefer your pleating to the demo card. Yours is subtle and elegant and your sweet peas are perfect. Saw that tutorial and you have inspired me to give it a go.
