Drapery Fold Card

This is my post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.
Go and check it out to see how easy this
'Drapery Fold' card is to create!

Hi, Diane With you today with a fun drapery fold card
that I 'tweaked' a bit to add a bit of glittery goodness!

To make the drapery fold,
you will need a piece of designer paper cut to 4" x 11 1/2".
With the 11" piece across the top score at
3" ~ 4" ~ 6" ~ 7" ~ 9" ~ 10"

With the paper still on your cutter, on the right side (10" score side)
make a mark down about 1".

Line your 1" mark up with your cut line and move the paper
to the 3" score, keeping the 1" mark still in the cut line and cut on a diagonal.

Next fold your scores, mountain, valley, mountain valley etc.
Use a bone folder to get good creases.

To add my 'tweak' I used pieces of  1 1/2" Tear-fic Tape on each fold,
peeled the paper off and added Sterling Glitter to pretty!

Once that was done I adhered it down with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to a white card stock.

The card itself (gray) is a regular A2 size.

I added a strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape across the top,
then once again the Sterling glitter.
This is a fabulous glitter for the holidays!
I tied a twine bow and glued on a snowflake button to the center.

Using the sentiment from the Crystal Snow Flake set,
I stamped with Versamark directly onto the white card stock,
then embossed with Silver Detail embossing powder.

The large snowflake is from the Crystal Snow Flake set was stamped
with Versamark, then embossed with Flashy Flamingo embossing powder.
I fussy cut the snowflake out, which was very easy
and added it to the card front.
Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops Silver Moondust was carefully
added to the center of the snowflake.

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and will try one of these yourself.
Thank you for visiting with me today.

Oh it's beautiful! Such an eye catching design. Hope you and all those kitties are doing well! Doesn't anyone come to neuter those cats?

You're a genius, Diane! That glitter peeking from the back side is a fantastic idea! Thank you for the tutorial, because I've never made one of these, and would really like to do so! I actually "get it" now. Can you tell I'm not a paper engineer at all? My mind tries to do everything backwards. Also, the glitter idea is so great! I suppose any product would look great if the back side was plain - even stamping a coordination theme would work if a person doesn't own the papers. It's a beautiful creation with the snowflake. Diane, thanks for teaching me today, or for the great inspiration! Hope your week is pure delight! hugs, de

Leslie Miller said...

Of course, you had to add the glittery goodness! Such a cool fold and not too bulky. I wouldn't mind giving it a whirl using your awesome instructions. Filing away the idea... Pretty card with the big snowflake, Diane!
