Here’s some weekend inspiration for you. It comes with another Stampin’ Story and honors a very dear friend, team member and talented paper crafter, Georgia Egan. Georgia passed away this week, losing her battle with bile duct cancer. In the past, I’ve showcased some of Georgia’s work here on my blog. Today, I thought I would use a technique Georgia taught me many years ago. It’s called Iris Folding.

Iris Folding is a detailed technique using folded paper to create concentric patterns. It’s enjoyable and the outsome is amazing and unique only to you. One of my original Iris Folding cards is below. I believe I created this card about eight or nine years ago. The Iris Folding technique is the center of the card.

My card, today, is a scaled down version of Iris Folding using up scraps of DSP, a punch, and glue or your favorite adhesive.

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • I punched a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Country Bouquet Punch.
  • Then, I die cut the punched image using one of my Stitched Circle Dies.
  • The circle measures 3″ in diameter.
  • I chose several patterns from the Regency Park Designer Series Paper and cut them into 1/4″ strips.
  • With the wrong sice of the punched image facing up, I attach the strips to the back of the punched layer to create a pattern.
  • I checked the front of my design consistently to make sure my pattern was forming the way I wanted it to look.
  • The image below shows the back of my circle. Lots of overlapping scraps!
  • I attached the circle to my card front with Dimensionals and added a sentiment.
  • That’s it!

So, find that amazing punch or die, circle it, cut some paper scraps, and fill your design, and create something unique to you!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
