Today's Free 4 All challenge is paper pleating or ruffles. I LOVE to paper pleat. So much fun! This is also for the MIX20, to use black for your image and shading.
All paper and stamps used are from Heartfelt Creations. The product list and complete instructions for recreating this card are below:
HCPC 3516-Antique Essentials PreCut Set
HCPC 3509-Timeless Sentiments PreCut Set
HCDP1 230 Sunny Day Paper Collection
other supplies: charcoal cardstock, white cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Ranger distress inks in Walnut Stain and Old Paper, grey baker's twine, half pearl, vintage button
Fold charcoal base so that it measures 4.25" x 5.5" when folded. Cut a 4" x 5.25" piece of Sunny Days patterned paper. Stamp vintage water pump in lower left corner in black ink. Ink edges of panel with distress inks and distress edges of paper with scissors or fingernail. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock and cut out individual words. Ink edges with distress ink and adhere to lower right corner next to water pump image. Adhere panel to center of card base. Cut a strip of Sunny Days patterned paper that measures 12" x 1.5". Crumple the paper up and accordian fold. You do not want it to look perfect, but old and shabby. I sponged distress inks on the strip after I pleated it. Adhere to top of card and trim any extra on each side. Tie Baker's twine into a loopy bow around the pleated paper and add a button and pearl to the center.
