Birthday Art Nouveau - Iris folding - Creative Sketches CS 41T

This week Creative sketches has a special challenge - Iris Folding.  This is one of my most favourite 'other' technique.  At one time, before I became a demonstrator, this is the technique I used on most of my cards.

This technique originated in Holland, where the thrifty Dutch women saved their foil lined envelopes, cut them into strips and Iris Folding was born. The sketch provided here depicts a circle, so my pattern has a circle in it.  The pattern is called Art Nouveau and resembles a stained glass window.

Stamp: Teeny tiny wishes
Inks: Rich Razzellberry ink & Marker
Papers: Basic black, Whisper White, Just Add Cake designer paper, Iris Folding paper (non SU) in various shades of pink and mauve),  Rich Razzellberry
Accessories: Corner rounder punch, Curly Label punch, 1/8" Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon colored with Rich Razzellberry marker, Perfect polka dot embossing folder, rhinestones.
