All dressed up double take

Pin It

Hello from our house, its cold and rainy out today and were suppose to be hiking for the long weekend..mmm not looking good so far forcast says it will be like this till after the weekend but things could change i must be positive! Well how proud of myself am i getting Mondays class to you all so early! LOL I made this Iris folded dress pattern way back in 2004 which seems like forever ago because so much has happened in our lives scince then. Im calling this post a double take because im showing you what you can do with those left over cutouts after you've completed the IF card. So after you've cut the dress out carefully with a shar craft knife . stamp the card front then go ahead and Iris fold following the numer pattern. I added some small stickers to the dress to add detail and kindy glitz glitter over some of the stamping. Now heres what you can make with the cutout!

Cool Hey! below you'll find both patterns for the Iris Folding and the mans suit. I cuttlebuged both these to add dimension and ran over the dress in a shimmery pearl Brilliance ink pad, and with a tiny flower and leaf punch gave them some pretty flowers. we also did these in blue shades and they looked beautiful. Heres a close up and the pattern.

I hope this has inspired you as it did others at my card making group.....Valita

and a last thought
I try to find common ground with everyone
so that i might bring them to Christ.
1 Corinthians 9:22
