Iris Folds!

This afternoon I got a chance to make my mother and mother-in-law each a Mother's Day Card. I searched for something I hadn't done before on Splitcoast Stampers and found an Iris Fold tutorial. It seemed like a nice one and it was really very easy to do! I used Japanese rice paper and Kaisercraft 'Fun in the Sun P207 Frizbee' double sided paper for the folds. The rest of the cardstock is from Stampin' Up! and so are the stamps, the gold embossing powder, inks and ribbons. There's an Icee Jewel in the middle of each flower to add some bling because of Lee's influence - Lol!

I was a bit influenced with the design by Karen at KwernerDesignBlog.

I sure hope our mothers like their cards!
Oh - and for all of you who would like a cupcake from a few posts ago? C'mon over and I'll make you some fresh ones!

Beautiful designs. I don't use this technique as I just can't find the patience, I prefer tea bag folds!!
