Another Pleating technique

img_3536-mediumAfter mastering the previous pleating technique, I stepped it up and tried aone that was a little more difficult. Lots of measuring on this one, but well worth the effort for the finished product.I am just hoping as I sit here that i have filed away the measurements! As the paper I used was so close to the background layer I inked the edges of the pleats to define it a little bit.The flowers I added were from Kaisercraft and i added a punched leaf and a ribbon bow to finish.The paper collection is Kaisercraft True Romance, and older release ,but one of my favourites.I have a really sore shoulder today, and not much use of my right arm, so I think the craft room is out of the question this weekend,looks like a reading weekend for relaxation! Til tomorrow…

  1. Hello Helen……This is a beautiful Card! Love the pleating, it looks like a lot of work to accomplish those pleats, you did a wonderful job! You have my admiration! Lovely papers too, Kaisercraft really have some beautiful sets of Papers, its so hard to resist buying them. I just ordered some “Ooh La La” can’t wait to get them. Thank you too for all the lovely Christmas Cards you posted recently, I enjoyed looking at them all, I am trying to catch up, been a “little under the weather” lately! I am so sorry to hear about your shoulder, hope it won’t be long before it’s all better again. Rest up Helen, hopefully that will help it get better. Please take care…..Love & Hugs, Janice. xxx

    1. Hi Janice, sorry to hear you have been under the weather.I love the Ooh La la paper and have bought the whole range, but haven’t had a chance to use it yet( although I do use it in my class for november) as I have been knee deep in Christmas cards . I think though that I have finally made enough of them and hopefully this week will get a chance to start on that gorgeous paper. I have rested my shoulder all weekend – no craft room for me 😦 and I do feel an improvement, I am on holidays for a couple of weeks so it will get a good rest before the busy period of Christmas at work. Do look after your dear self, love Helen xx
