Thinking of You...Faux Iris Folding

I love the Faux Iris Folding Technique, it's so much quicker than the old method of Iris Folding. To start, I cut the Top Note from a piece of Black card stock, then cut a Rectangle from the center using my Big Shot and Nestabilities. This gave me the opening for which to add my strips of Razzleberry Lemonade for my Faux Iris Folding. I did cut off the Black at the perforations, and distressed the edges using my Cutter Kit, so I could layer it on a piece of Crushed Curry card stock. Once the Faux Iris folding was done, I punched the holes in the side using the Crop-a-Dile then tied on a piece of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon (mines flipped so you don't see the polka dots. I placed the finished Faux Iris Folding on a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock that was embossed with the Stylized Flowers CuttleBug Folder.



The beautiful sentiment comes from the new Thinking of You Set from JustRite, just released yesterday, and the 2-1/4" x 3-1/16" Wood Stmper. To achieve the two tone color of the sentiment, I inked my stamp with Rich Razzleberry then using a Blender Pen, I removed the ink from the sentiment. With each swipe across the words with the Blender Pen, it removes the ink, then rub onto a piece of scrap paper, and continue removing the ink from your sentiment. Once all the ink was removed, I used a Black marker to color the sentiment, huff to moisten the ink, then stamp on White card stock. Once dry, I punched with the Large Oval Punch from Stampin' Up! and layered on Crushed Curry and Black Ovals that were cut using Oval Nestabilities. The sentiment adhered with dimensionals.
