Follow Your Dreams

This is my entry for the Mix It Up Monday - Sentimentally Layered challenge over at Stamp TV. I am so excited to be entering this challenge...it has been entirely too long.


This card was done using the Triore Folding technique. For those of you who don't know what it is, it is a lot like Iris Folding, except all of your folds are in the shape of a triangle. There are many patterns you can use. This card is a pattern that was created by Dorothea Stone, a very good friend of mine who passed away recently. She made her own patterns and used to teach classes at one of our local stamp stores. What I loved about this pattern is that she used one of Spellbinder's die cuts, and since I have that die cut, I can put it wherever I want to on the card. All of the papers used on this card were from one of Dorothea's kits. I used a corner punch to add a bit of interest and then stamped the sentiment from Gina K. Design's Follow Your Dreams set. I added the extra metal dragonfly and a bit of bling to make it pop. This card has four layers.
