Just wanted to say ...

I made this notelet to send to a friend and as I used snippets of paper and card I'm paying my first visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  I'm also entering the Allsorts 'Anything but Christmas' challenge.

Card blank: 5" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Hobby Art 'General Greetings'
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Other: Embossed, die-cut card front, Basic Square Iris Folding pattern (from 460 Iris Folded Cards to Make by Maruscha Gaasenbeek & Tina Beauveser)
Snippets: Strips of paper, gold card

I trimmed the die-cut card front slightly so it was the same size as my card blank and then stamped the sentiment in the lower corner.  As the aperture was slightly larger than the iris folding pattern, I outlined the square with strips of brown paper.  I then used the strips of papers to make the iris folding pattern and added a small piece of gold card to the centre.  After completing the iris folding, I attached this to the card blank with double sided tape.
