Faux Pleated Ribbon Card

I think this technique looks so neat on a card. I took a strip of patterned paper 1"x12" and pleat folded it until it was the width of the card. I then sewed across the paper to hold all the pleats in place. I added my image and a small sentiment stamped in white pigment ink. Then mounted the card front on my card base that way the stitches cannot be seen on the inside of the card.
A little tip - I took the pieces of thread that were hanging over the paper and taped them to the back, that way nothing will come unraveled as I didn't do any backstitching.
