This is an iris folding card (one of my favorite techniques!) made using handmade paper.
This month I was part of the Rosh HaShanah (Jewish New Year) swap at the Israeli scrapbooking forum (yes, there is such thing). The swap requirements were to send a card and a small handmade gift. Here is mine:
Michaels. I liked the red color and the fact that I can turn it upside down and the cover still looks ok. (We read in Hebrew from right to left).
I altered the cover using the cute apple stamp from Imaginisce, doodlebug buttons, Fiskars punches and letters in Hebrew that I found on my trip to Israel 2 years ago.
