Good afternoon! I hope you´re all well and warm. I´m down with a small cold, that´s the downside to work at a school. All bugs love schools! My camera seems to have caught the bug too, the colours looks a lot more cold than they are IRL.
This is my first try with paper pleating, it gives a nice texture to the card. I followed the lovely tutorial at Just Magnolia.
The flowers are also fab for texture and I don´t know how many I made, only to end up in the bin. Then I found a fab recipe here. Bonnie has made several post about Bloomers but the link is only for the tut. Isn´t it amazing with the cardmaking society that people are sharing techniques so freely. You don´t have to buy expensive how-to books or classes, just need to spend some time visiting blogs.
