Fabric Iris Fold


This is my first attempt at the Iris Folding technique.  This site has a good description of this technique and some patterns so you can try it too.  As usual, I don't do things the easy way.  Instead of using paper, as recommended, I decided to use scraps of fabric.  I really like this color combo and thought it would be perfect for a Valentine's card. 

I cut out my frame with a Deckled Rectangles Spellbinder's die and dry embossed it.  I followed the easy instructions and a basic pattern, layered the fabric in the correct order, and embellished the center with a button.  I'm really happy with the way this turned out and plan on making more soon.
