I’ve always been too lazy to try the (real) iris folding technique, but when I saw this faux version explained in the latest Technique Junkie Newsletter, I couldn’t wait to use it on a card.
After making this Asian card yesterday, I noticed that the Lattice die creates a nice frame for this technique. I took a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Lattice die. Then I placed 3/4″ strips of Razzleberry Lemonade designer series paper inside the frame until it was completely filled in.
This Dutch birthday card will be sent to my great aunt Louisa in Belgium who turns 98 years young next week! She has given me many real iris folding cards in the past, and I hope she won’t mind my using a faster, less complicated technique.
Thanks for stopping by!
