Iris fold cat card


Hi
My dear friend was having a birthday and I wanted a special card for her. While she was living in South Korea it was difficult to mail multi layered cards to her but since she has moved back to Canada it was no problem.
Since she is a cat lover I thought this little guy would be appropriate. I had some beautiful unused curtain material that was thin enough for iris folding. Of course, I had to add the butterfly. I couldn't find my peel off sentiments (ok ok so it's time to clean out the craft room) so had to hand write the Happy Birthday. I lined the envelope with a gold strip of card stock to match the front.
Have a Blessed day.
Myrna

Myrna the iris folding has come out so well. The butterfly touch is so good

This is such a cool card! I love the iris folding, and frankly, and handwritten sentiment trumps a sticker any day. It was a nice touch to line the envelope, too.
