Waffle Paper

While attempting to utilize Stampin' Up! waffle paper, I discovered that it works great for the technique, Iris Folding.  I used an Iris Folding pattern to create the large bat on my card, and filled it in with Basic Black and Metallic Silver waffle paper.  I believe it is quite appropriate to have some bats hanging upside down on the card. (LOL)


I used the fantastic Stampin' Up! Silver Glass Glitter in the center of the Iris Folding, which creates the "iris".  I love this stuff!  Hopefully, you can see it well.


Now, let's peek inside and see what pops up!  Be careful that you don't get scared when you flip the card open!


BOO!!!


Can't you hear the little ghosts giggling because they scared you!! (hehe)

Let's take a closer look that them!


OK, maybe you didn't hear my ghost yelling, "Boo", but I sure did when I was making the card ;-))

I hope you are inspired by the fun that Stampin' Up! provides us if we allow our creativity to flow naturally!
