Assignment: Make a card combining Paper Embroidery with Iris Folding
I made my own iris folding pattern for an iris several years ago and pulled it out for this card. I used a pebbled glittery cardstock for the main panel and completed the flower in folded tissue before pricking out the border. This border is actually bits and pieces from a template I got in a swap. I usedgreen threads on the top to echo the stem and leaves and used yellow on the bottom to echo the top of the iris.
I rounded the corners of the main panel as well as a dark purple shimmery paper as a backing. This is mounted onto a light purple folded card base. Both the purple layers match those in the flower.
