Now on the the tutorial! I chose to do a card using the iris folding technique for this tutorial because it's inexpensive and not too difficult to do if you have never done it before.
The papers that I like to use the most are wrapping paper, because you can get it in many colors including shiny and it's inexpensive. You will need to cut your paper into 1" strips
The tree pattern I had did not fit the die so I traced the outline of the cut die and made my own.
Cut your tree out using a die or an exacto knife using this pattern
I tape the colors I am using onto a piece of paper and place a number under each so I can put the strips in the right order on the card.
If you only put tape on the top of your card you can flip it to see how it's looking.
After I put the white paper on my tree I didn't like it so was able to change it to the gold paper and it looked so much better. It will look a little messy on the back but that won't be seen. In the center try to put a paper that has a pattern and is super shiny because that is your focal point.
After you get all the white filled all you need to do is adhere it to your card and add whatever embellishments you want.
