Celebrate Freedom

For my iris folding class for June, I thought I would try something new, and make some cards to fit into business-size envelopes (A10, I believe?). When I saw these new papers from Simply Luxe at my LSS, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. The ladies in the class definitely loved this card, and are making more on their own. The stars were cut with the George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge. Cardstock is Bazzill, white pen is American Crafts Ultimate Gel Pen, black pen is American Crafts Memory Markers, dots made with Liquid Pearls, stamp is Stampendous. Ribbon from stash, and a touch of Stickles on the stamped image, which is adhered with pop dots.

Better late than never! I thought that would be the perfect sentiment for this adorable snail from the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge. I used him in my iris folding class to make a belated birthday card, and I really love the way he turned out. He would also be perfect for a baby boy card. All of the patterned papers are Imaginisce, cardstock is Bazzill, head and tail were embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss dots, brown journaling pen for dots is American Crafts, sentiment is computer generated. Ribbon and button are from my stash.

And last, but not least, here is a cute little vase that I iris folded using purple papers from Doodlebug. There just aren't that many purple papers out there, so when I saw these at my LSS, I knew I had to incorporate them into one of my classes. The vase and the flower are both from the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge. I used ribbon for the stem (and for the bow on the vase, of course) and filled in the center of the flower with Liquid Pearls. White cardstock is Bazzill. I think this card needs yet a little more embellishment before I give it to somebody special, but I like it so far! Thanks for looking!

I think your "iris fold" cards are gorgeous. I really like the snail and the sentiment - perfect. Is there a tutorial on how you did this? Thanks.
