Pleated paper is just so pretty to me, especially when it's the Hello Lovely paper (only available through the end of the month- and that is TOMORROW!!!). To create these beautiful pleats, cut a piece of B&T paper 3"x12" and then score in this pattern: +2", +1" and continue until the end. Then fold, alternation mountain and valley to create your pleats. You will end up with wider piece than you need for a standard-size card, so place it where you like it best and cut off the excess.
Good Thymes! stamp set (stamped in Fern- 1st & 2nd generation- and Sorbet to match the Hello Lovely paper). I finished my card with gold shimmer trim, but the Blush shimmer ribbon would have also been a beautiful choice.
Would you like to give this technique a try? If so I would love to see what you create. Feel free to link up in the comments!
