Pleating

Scroll down for the Stamper's Dream Coupon Code.



Hello my friends! It's Thursday already, and that means it's time for another CCEE Stampers challenge. This week, we're challenged to use pleats. They can be with paper or ribbon. I chose to use this beautiful silk pleated ribbon by Maya Road and make itty-bitty 3x3 cards.

Verve just released 3 new fantastic sentiment phrase sets this past weekend. They fit perfectly in the new A Cut Above Charming Banner dies. I used three sentiments from the Faithful Phrases set, and layered them over one of Spellbinders' newest Nestabilities, Labels 20. While still in the nestie frame, I embossed it with the Damask Sizzix Embossing Folder. I like the clean edge look with the embossed center. Lastly, I added some Liquid Pearls, and a Butterfly. Here's a close-up of all three cards individually:



Thanks again for stopping by. Have a super weekend.

Happy Stamping!!

These are really sweet, Tosh how do you emboss with the die still in the frame?? You wrote While still in the nestie frame, I embossed it with the Damask Sizzix Embossing Folder." I can't work out how you would do that? As always, thanks for all the inspiration :)
