Here is another card using the new Die-Versions Sweet Spot Live Simply die that was released this month. (You can see the other card I created with this die here.)
Ombre is such a popular trend right now and I wanted to try to create something along those lines too. This is pretty quick and easy to make. Start out by cutting several strips of paper (folds easier than cardstock) and score them starting at 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/2", 1 3/4", 2 1/2", 2 3/4".... until you've scored the entire length of the strip. Then start creating the valley and mountain folds in a box pleat. I could have sewn the top of each strip to keep the pleats in place, but I used my Tiny Attacher stapler instead. This was much, much quicker and easier. Line them up darkest to lightest (or vice versa).
I've die cut the Sweet Spot out of the darkest paper and adhered it to white cardstock. The square/circle combo makes it pop a bit more. One other unique thing about this card is the fold. It ends at the bottom of the pleats. So the strips of glittered double sided tape still show at the bottom when you open it and I've added a place to write your message on the inside.
Head on over to the Die-Versions Blog for more great inspiration from this month's Country Life release.
