Pretty Pleated Fold

 
 
Hello! A little while back a lovely card featuring this super fold was entered in the weekly challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown where I am a DT member. I really loved it and fancied having a go myself. The blog post where I found a link to the original tutorial can be found here.
 
I like this technique because after one minor blip (where I cut the wrong bit off) it was quite straightforward! I also like how it showcases both sides of your dsp and you can change the look very easily. It doesn't take a huge amount of patterned paper - just 10 x 5 inches, so great for snippet-zapping!
 
 
 
 
I'm sending my Christmas card off to Di and Parsnip at Pixie's Snippets Playground with a huge thank you for the gorgeous embossing folder (and stunning card) that I was lucky enough to win.
 
I would also like to enter Weekly Christmas Card Challenges as I have a (tiny) amount of music on my card!
 
Have a great week! April x
