Hello peeps,

It's raining birthdays in our family these days and I'm having sooper fun designing and making cards and memorable gifts for everyone :)

Here's a card I made on order :)

I kept this card simple and used contrasting colors to bring our the cuteness and sharpness each color brings on it's own.

I was going through the internet and found Iris Folding as one techniques, I had always been fascinated by this but I never knew what's it known as.. until I found it on internet and decided to put this up in this card..
I have made a gift box using the iris-fold technique :)


The card opens up to reveal the gorgeous birthday cake :) Yummy !!!
