I used a sentiment from Verve's Dad's Day set on a Spellbinders' Fancy Tags Three die popped over the front. MME Stella Rose papers. I accordian folded the striped paper to make the bottom panel, and stitched around the edges, which is holding the pleats in place. Scallop punched the bottom edge and added a few flat-backed pearls. I embossed the kraft card front with a houndstooth folder, but almost all of it is covered by the main panel. It still added a nice texture and looks cool on the inside.

Oh, this is fabulous Nicole! The warm earth tones are the perfect background for that elegant sentiment panel! The addition of the pearls is fabulous...it draws your eye right away to the sentiment! Great folding technique at the bottom too, I always pull out my medallion folds, but you've shown that they can look just as good still folded up! Great card!
