My first ever Iris fold card

Click here for my GIVEAWAY
CLICK HERE for the DL.ART Thankful Thursday #104 challenge ending March 12, 2013

Good Evening Friends,

I needed another sympathy card, in fact I need quite a few more.  I won't go into it now, but let me say this has been one of the longest darkest weeks in quite awhile.  I do see light at the end of the tunnel, because I know where my hope comes from.  I am thankful for the puffy clouds in the sky today and my family and so much more.  This is the second sympathy card  I have made this week and I love the way it came out. It is my first ever Iris fold card. I used two different  K & Company paper packs  and 4 different patterns, but the patterned paper still looks good together.

The folding came together so easily because I used the "Iris fold cards" cut file from It is basically all done for you and if you get stumped Mary has a great video showing you how to put it together

The base of my card is PTI vanilla cream the the gray is Bazzill all the rest are from K& company. It took a bit of time to put together, but it was easy.

I hope you like it.
