Origami inspiration

Paper folding

The card was made using papers from the Gorjuss 6x6 paper selection.

The paper folding (central octagonal shape) is a fancy folded frame from HOTP "Susan's Journal of Paper Engineering", using a sheet of 6x6 paper that had a graduated colour scheme, it looks like more than one piece of paper is involved. I added a central square of blue paper to cover the white background.

On the central square, I added a waterfall folded paper in brown and turned it into a flower box.

The octagonal fold shape is then matted onto blue and silver square mats.

The flowers are from the d-lites dies - basil, sage and lavender.

The tag is from the same Gorjuss papers and a stamp from a freebie magazine set from ages ago.

I am entering this in the Daring Cardmakers challenge - origami

The card I made first for the challenge was the following origami shirt card:

Then I noticed that one of the DT had already done this (Nat's card is fabulous!) so I decided to try again. Love this card though and if my DH hasn't noticed, he may just be getting this in June for Father's Day.
