Just Pleat It!

Click HERE for Your Next Stamp's Blog Hop.

Good Morning! is cold in Middle Tennessee. Hope everyone is warm and toasty.

Today's post is about adding pleats to your project. What are pleats? Webster defines pleats as...
"a flat double fold in cloth or other material of uniform width and stitch or pressed in place". Why add pleats? Well, that is the challenge for Your Next Stamp. Check out YNS challenge blog for details of the challenge and the Design Team's examples. Create a card or project with pleats and link it to the YNS challenge blog for a chance to win one of 2 prizes!

Here is my card for the challenge.
For my card I used Your Next Stamp "Tea Time Fhiona".
YNS 'Tea Time Fhiona'
Memento tuxedo black ink
Copic markers
Papertrey Ink white cardstock
Bazzill cardstock
Club Scrap cardstock
Basic Grey designer paper
Vintage Street Market foil paper
Fiskar border punch
Recollection pearls (colored with Copic marker)
Ribbon and button from stash
Sharpie white poster paint pen

I hope you get to stay in where it is warm so you can create something awesome with pleats. Be sure to link it to the YNS blog for a chance to win a prize. Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! LC
