Iris Folding Heart with New Twitterpated Suite

2011 is almost over!!! I’m excited to see what 2012 has in stock! I wish everbody a great year, full of love and happiness!

I’m excited to share with you a sneek peak of the new Twitterpated Suite which is coming really soon in the new Occasions mini-catalogue. (available on January 4!) This “Suite” includes beautiful designer paper, super cute buttons, pleated satin ribbon, designer fabric and a stamp set called Bordering on Romance that coordinates with new Edgelits Dies and embossing folders.  This new designer paper series is perfect for iris folding so I’ve decided to do 2 iris folding cards with hearts, to keep my Valentine’s theme!  And now we have Framelits Dies to cut the heart shape!!! No more need for an exacto knife!  That makes your life even easier!!!

So here’s my two cards: (click on pictures to see them bigger)

And some close-up.

Now for the iris folding patterns:

If you’ve never done any iris folding card before, I hope these next picture will help you figure it out! The first step is to choose 3 designer papers. Then you cut strips of about 2 cm of each paper.  For each strip, you fold over about 1/3 lengthwise. Cut your heart shape with the framelit dies in the card stock you chose. Put your card stock over the pattern and tape it at the top (so it won’t move). Then you start at #1 and align you paper with the line on the pattern. Glue in place on both sides. Take your second paper and align with number 2. Glue in place. Repeat with #3. Change paper and repeat at #4. (Note that #2 and 3 are the same paper on this pattern only.)

Keep going!!! Keep adding you paper, following the numbers.

Et Voilà!

Flip over and check your nice work!!!
