Pleated Skirt Technique and Birthday Blooms

I am going to offer this beautiful card at all of my May 10, May 12, and May 14, 2016 classes, and am excited to share this pleated card technique.  I learned this technique by watching YouTube videos, and when I saw Lea Denton's video on her blog, I said to myself "that's the one".  If you are not able to attend any of my May 2016 classes, and would like to make this card, please visit her blog Here

  • The base is an 11 x 4 1/4 piece of Soft Suede, scored at 5 1/2.
  • The next layer is a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Blushing Bride
  • The top layer is a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Mint Macaron.
  • The DSP is from Birthday Bouquet.
  • I covered the seam between the pleats and the top of the card with a piece of the beautiful Pool Party glitter ribbon.
  • I stamped the small flower with Tuxedo Memento ink, punched it out with a 1 1/4" circle punch, and I colored it with Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Early Espresso markers.  To give my flower a little bling, I brushed it with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.
  • I used Blushing Bride paper and a 1 3/8" scallop punch for the backing on the flower.  
  • I made the small "tails" on the flower with the Bow Builder Punch.
  • I stamped the words from Birthday Blooms and Wetlands with Early Espresso ink.
  • Remember to decorate your envelope, can't leave the house naked, right?
