Sunday Post

A card for the current ODBDSLC challenge (#34) to use kraft & black plus another color.  I decided to go with kraft, black & cream.  I also made this card for the current Moxie Fab World challenge Perfectly Placed Pleats.  

Last year during the May, 2009 PaperTrey Ink release, Nichole Heady, made a card using the cutest little pleating detail (look here).  She provided a template so that we could recreate the pleats ourselves.  I downloaded the template and have been using it ever since.  
For my card I created two sections of pleating and then adhered them together so that they would fit along the length of the card.  The patterned paper I used is one of my favorites from Close to My Heart, called Silhouette.   The stamps, of course, are from ODBD, the set called As You Graduate.   I stamped the main image on PTI's Vintage Cream cs with PTI's True Black ink.  The piece was matted with True Black cs.  I stamped a 2nd butterfly on Vintage Cream and then trimmed it out.  I sprayed it with some Smooch (Vanilla something), but you can't really see it. 

Thanks for taking a peek... hope you have a wonderful week!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Kraft, Vintage Cream & True Black; Ink:  PTI True Black; Stamps:  ODBD As You Graduate; Smooch; Kaiser clear rhinestones; Close to My Heart patterned paper.
