Faux Iris Folding - Free and the Brave


I love the Faux Iris Folding Technique from the June TJNL- as it's much quicker than regular Iris Folding, and when you have a punch - it even goes faster! The Star opening on my card was created using the new Movers & Shapers Punch Windows Die from Stampin' Up! This die was available to demos to preorder and will be available for purchase in the Idea Book & Catalog in July. What's cool about this die, is it coordinates with the Movers and Shapers Curly Label Die, as will as some of Stampin' Up!'s punches!


The sentiment is from the soon to be retired Stampin' Up! set The Free and the Brave. The DSP is from Karen Foster and can be found at Innovative Stamp Creations.


Details:
Stamps - The Free and the Brave (Stampin' Up!)
Ink - Night of Navy
Card Stock - White, Night of Navy, Cranberry Crisp (retired)
Other - Big Shot, Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die, Punch Windows Die, DSP

Lisa, this is just beautiful! I love what you did with the faux Iris folding and the diecut star! I just ordered the M&S die to go with the 4 punch set that I already got in the preorder and I am soooo case'ing this card! First I have to find my June TJ newsletter which I'm hoping I brought with me to my parents because I can't remember my password to get into TNJ subscriber pages. I drive myself crazy...or rather I drive Pat crazy asking to be reminded what to do! lol! And that's nothing compared to remembering the bank ATM stuff! Jan

I'm not sure exactly why but this card takes my breath away. The combination of simplicity, subtle color and sentiment just grabs my soul.

This would be so perfect for Cards for Heroes and so many other special uses.

Thanks for sharing this and making my day Lisa.

Hugs and blessings - Jean
