VIDEO: Pleated Paper Card Video + Love & Affection Sneak Peek

Did you like the Apple of my Eye cards I shared yesterday? I have been hooked on the Pleated Paper technique! I have seen several tutorials with different measurements to do this "Drapery" or "Curtain" fold; some of them are smaller pleats or different size pleats. I came up with my own measurements to make this technique simple and EASY! I know once you try it, you'll be hooked and want to make more!

Here is my latest Pleated Paper card. I used the new Love & Affection stamp set, Affectionately Yours Designer Paper, and Floral Affection Embossing Folders that are NEW and will be coming out in the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on June 1st. Demonstrators can pre-order these goodies now. Not a demonstrator yet? Find out how you can get the Sneak Peek products NOW
