Club Scrap digital kit and irisfolding

Today I have a totally different idea with the
Club Scrap digital Delft kit.
I choose a very Dutch technique called "irisfolding".
This technique started with folding insides of enveloppes.
When back in the days lots of real mail was send, 
lots of enveloppes had beautiful inside patterns.
But today email is the most used post.
So other papers are used, like wrapping paper or
origami papers. 
For my project I chose some background patterns from the
digital kit and printed those out on copy paper.
If you have never done irisfolding and are curious about
this technique, I have a tutorial here.
So here is card#1 a tulip. As this is not my own
template i cannot share it here, but if you want it,
just emal me.

The technique needs a template
and you cut out the shape in the panel of the card.

The template is behand the card panel and
all is taped down.

from the printed papers I have cut strips of 1 inch.

Folding the strips and taping them down
as the template tells you. I did it easy on
the stem and the leaves by covering this with
a plain green piece of paper.

When all is finished and you turn around the
paper, this is what you get.

Card #2: here I also printed a  background
piece from the Delft kit. The vase shape is cut out
and did in the irisfolding technique.
I added some flowers from my stash on top
of the vase.

On the close up you can see that I added a
 border(sticker) around the vase.

Card #3: a clog.
For this card I made the template myself
and you are welcome to use it:

When i finished doing the irisfolding,
I also used the real tulip stamp and colored 
it with a marker. The lines are drawn with the
diamond pen that came with the paper kit.

Tomorrow there is the 
Club scrap Artist Team Blog Hop
with many more digital ideas.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!
