Card Making Classes - Day 9

Today was all about adding texture.  Most of the time I add texture to my cards with embossing or the use of mediums such as snowtex and liquid pearls, but this time around I decided to try one of the suggestions from class... paper pleating.  I'd like to say it was a success from the moment I sat down at my desk, but alas, it took at least five tries (yep, ya' read that right - FIVE) to actually come up with something I liked.

Tried paper pleating a while ago but never really got on with it. May need to have another go now I've seen your project. Nice crisp lines, even with a score board I found mine lines wandered when I folded them. :-) xx

I'm not surprised it took so many tries! You are actually good, I think I'd still be trying! Paper scoring and folding is definitely not my strong suit! This looks wonderful.
