This week's MIM challenge at PTI involves ribbon pleating. I have used this technique in the past, but it was nice having a tutorial done by Dawn McVey. Here is my take on the challenge.
I knew I wanted to use the Mat stack #3 die for this card as well as PTI's Holiday Flourishes & Swirls paper designed by Heather Nichols. I decided to use the sunflower die to create my faux pointsettia. It is stamped in Versacolor Burgandy to coordinate with the striped paper. As I was laying out my design on the cardstock, the thought of cutting a 1/2 inch off the right side of the card popped into my mind. Here's a close-up of the pleated ribbon.
I love how this card turned out. thank you for looking.
