Pleated Skirt Fold

This is my third card for a newer blog group that I am a part of on SCS. It is called the Gallery Gazers and was created by one of my good friends on SCS, Jeanette--Forest Ranger.  You all know her as one of the Three Musketeers and a part of Ready, Set Go, both groups also including Kelly.  No surprise, Kelly is also one of the members of the Gallery Gazers too.  The premise behind the group is friendship, a shared love of stamping, and also a shared admiration for the many amazing creators who post in the SCS Gallery. Once a month, we are each to choose a card/project from the SCS Gallery to CASE--Copy and Share Everywhere. This post is the card I made after being inspired by Sue (dani_fournier on SCS) card found Here!  

I have seen many samples of cards using these kinds of folds.  This one is called Pleated Skirt Fold and I have also seen some called Drapery Folds. It is a fun fold to use to highlight the front and back of some pretty patterned paper!

Here is the inside of my card:

I had fun creating this card and I am behind in making cards for this group.  I am missed my December one and I have a second one scheduled for here next Wednesday!  Be sure to check back and see what I make.  There is not set date to post our creations, so check back often!

Barb, WOW! I love your card - great CASE!!! And your folds are a perfect way to use double-sided paper! (Am I the only one who has a difficult time deciding which side to use?) Lovely!!!

Thanks for being part of the Gallery Gazers!!!

Barb, I think this card is lovely and showing us that no matter how bumpy the road may be, we can always smile! I have not seen this fold before, but I am going to give it a go. I love the look of it. Nicely done.
