Paper Pleating



This week at Just Magnolia they have a different challenge. They want you to try your hand at paper pleating. Stamp for Fun wants cards done with snowflakes this week. I had this little Tilda already colored up and had pleated the paper previously hoping one day to make a card as if she was dreaming out a window. Well this challenge was perfect for me. I just had to put it together. I used CTMH Aspen paper and cut out a whole for the window to show through. I used the pleated paper as the awning. The sentiment "Wish Big" is from Stamping Bella. I punched out the snowflakes and added a sugar coated brad. I colored her with my Derwents and Mineral Spirits. Have fun trying this different technique.
