For my CAS card, I'm combining the IC w/ one of the HYCCT challenges. I was inspired by This, not only because it's pretty, but it also had the red/white colors I needed for Robin's Candy Striper HYCCT challenge.
Recently I came across a tutorial on how to create an Origami Bow.(link is on my blog). I just loved the way it looked so I cut a 5″ square of the striped paper & set out to fold the bow. I’ve done a little origami folding before so it was pretty easy. The bow will work on pretty much any size of paper as long as it is square. I did a couple of test sizes w/ copy paper first & thought the 5″ square was the perfect size for my card. This paper is medium weight, probably about 24#. I wouldn’t use paper that was very much heavier because the folds won’t stay.
After I folded it, I did add some thin white strips on the edges of the bow part. The draping folds show white because this paper is striped on one side & white on the other. I also added a small white die cut bow on top. The textured white front was a leftover & had the square already cut out so I backed it w/ more of the stripe paper & liked how it looked like a present so I added a white strip down the center & attached the bow on top.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups, bow link & the inside are on my blog: The Write Stuff

This is beautiful Julie! Love all the stripe directions and beautiful folding!!! For some reason, I'm not seeing it in the HYCCT1520 gallery but I see your keyword is correct...Maybe I need to go all the way out then back in again! I'll try that. But anyway, love your card and thanks for playing!
