Drapery Fold Technique: Pansy Petals

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’ve got so much to share with you today! First, one of my favorite “Fold” techniques with two cards and a video! Plus, I’m using the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper that goes on sale tomorrow.

But before that starts I have one last reminder …. TODAY is the Last Day to purchase from the Jan – June Mini Catalog. CLICK HERE TO VIEW Save up to 50% on select items.

Sometimes we forget about Fun Folds or Techniques we used years ago but I have no problem bringing back the great ones, and the Drapery Fold card is one of those, and I’ve combined it with the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper ….

There are different dimensions for this fold out in the crafting world (I’ll share another with you tomorrow) Today I’m going to share the “full card” dimensions for the drapery fold. You’ll begin with a 11-1/2″ x 4″ piece of designer paper, then score at 3″ – 4″ – 6″ – 7″ – 9″ and 10″.

You will “cut” your paper from the bottom of the 3″ score line to approximately 1″ from the top of the right side of your designer paper. Your adhesive goes on 1″ folds (as shown in the video). DON’T throw away that piece you cut off …. because I’ll show you how to make a card with it ….

The layout of your drapery fold for the piece you cut off depends on the design … we had to make sure our daisies were facing the proper direction. With that being said, I added my adhesive and mounted it onto a piece of 3″ x 3″ white piece of cardstock… the Evening Evergreen mat is 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″.

The pretty stripped background paper also comes from the Pansy Petals designer series paper, as does the cute little pansy I used to embellish my card. Now let’s check out that video ….

The video is from my Facebook LIVE last night … I hope you join me next Tuesday at 6:30 pm Central Time. It’s so much fun sharing; I just loved Beth’s idea of turning the small leftover piece into a gift tag! We learn more when we share our ideas, and my stampin’ friends inspire me all the time.

Just a few reminders before I go … Tomorrow is the LAST DAY for the Mini Catalog and then our Designer Paper Sale begins on Thursday, July 1st!

Thank you so much for hanging out with me today, and checking out my blog.

Have a wonderful day ~
