Jules said...

Hi Coops

A gorgeous card.

Very luxurious colours .. .. and great image .. .. just look at her skinny ankles!!! LOL!!!

You asked how I stitched my pleated paper onto my Sunday snippet card.

Well, I folded my paper into little pleats first then laid it over my base card where I wanted to stitch it. I placed my ribbon over the pleats and then stitched it in place through all the layers.

You need to make sure you stitch with the pleats facing towards you otherwise the sewing machine foot can get caught up in the pleats.

I hope this makes sense Coops. If not just shout.

Love Jules xx
