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.

Thank You stamp I think was free with a magazine.

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.

A very clever idea Meg. Paper pleating does give a great effect. Barbxx

Carol said...

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.

Hi Meg, very effective, and a super design that is good for a man, but equally for a lady who didn't like fussy cards, great papers and pleats, have a good weekend, Kate x

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.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Great card, the pleated paper background looks fantastic, but I can imagine that despite looking so straight forward it was anything but! Thanks for playing at Oohlala, Jx

Jocelyn said...

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.
