Thank You




Something quite different from me today, I wanted a masculine thank you card, but I wanted it to be really simple as well. Well it proved to be anything but simple, after pleating my lengths of paper , getting them to form a square took ages, I know what I would do to make it easier now and the solution was probably staring me in the face but I didn't see it till later.

  1. A really eye catching design Meg, I can well imagine how long it took to do all that pleating.

    Many thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations challenge.

  3. What a good idea with the pleating. It adds such depth to the card. Aren't you going to share your simpler solution? I have often done paper weaving but not pleating. Thank you for joining in Meg.

  7. Love your enthusiasm for the Snippets Playground Meg, but only one entry was allowed this week, and this new rule is now permanent. Therefore, this entry will be removed from the Playground.

    Brilliant snippets usage though and a fab masculine card.

  17. What a lovely idea. It reminds me that I've got a paper crimping thing-a-mjig in a drawer upstairs - one of my early crafting purchases - which would give a similar effect. Well done with your card and thank you for sharing with us.
