Some Iris Folding

I made this card a few weeks ago and haven't had time to post it yet. I made the iris fold using shimmer paper from Paper Temptress. What I like about her paper is that you can get it in text and card stock weight. Here I used the text weight for the iris fold and the card stock weight for the base.

I was trying to make it look like a stained glass window. When I cut the corners, though, they did not come out uniform. I need to practice getting my slanted cuts more even, lol. The 'window" is adhered using dimentionals.

The ribbon on the edges is also from Paper Temptress. She was clearing out her ribbon from an older ribbon supplier which was giving her some trouble. I stocked up quite a bit on it and am happy I did since it is all gone. She does have new ribbon though, from a different supplier.

The flowers are from the wedding section of my local big box craft store. To dress it up a bit all I used were some of the gold outline stickers.

Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my dogwood LO! This card is stunning. I've studied the technique, but haven't tried it yet. :-)
