Christmas In July - Iris Folded Card


Celebrate The Occasion is currently hosting a Christmas In July challenge where you are not to use the color red.

Whenever I buy Christmas paper, I tend to purchase very nontraditional colors. When I saw this paper, I had to add it to my stash. I decided to use Iris Folding which looks pretty complicated but in actuality is very simple. Since I wanted to focus on the folding itself, I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and added a hint of glitter.

I like the way that this card ended up.
