Pleated skirt fold

I've seen a number of cards on the Internet featuring these folds, with various names. I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and had a go at making one.
I used some scraps of retired SU paper and a butterfly that I had cut out some time ago and not used. The lace tape was also a scrap. In fact apart from the blank, everything was snippets.


Then I made a landscape one which took me a lot longer as I had to work out the measurements and my "maths head" wasn't working well!

Lots of snippets used so I'm off to the Playground to see what all the playmates are up to.

  1. Oh Sue, these are so pretty. I love how you did the folds. That is something I've never tried and I'm sure the math would baffle me too.

  2. Two fabulous cards Sue and I especially like the first one. The pleats work really well to add dimension and I love the colours and layout too. Sandra :) x

  11. These are really interesting cards and I might have a go if it didn't involve maths. The papers you've used are very pretty.

  12. These both look very pretty. I don't think I've seen a card where the pleats go all the way to the top before, but I like it; it leaves a very nice spot to showcase the sentiment.
