Almost everything on this card is retired, but I wanted to share my first attempt at the "drapery fold". I have seen so many different cards over the last few months using this fold and I wanted to give it a try. You have to use a pretty sizeable chunk of DSP for this fold, so I just had to cheap-out and use some retired paper for my experimentation. I ended up liking it so much with this paper that I prepped a batch of these for the card buffet that I held on Sunday. Several of the gals made up this card, so I think it was a hit.
If you want to do the drapery fold, here are the directions for how to cut and score the DSP to get this perfect fold on a landscape oriented card:
- Cut the DSP to be 4" x 11 1/2"
- Score at 3", 4", 6", 7", 9" & 10"
- Cut on an angle from the 3" score mark to 1 1/2" from the top at the end
- Fold on the score lines in alternating directions to get the drapery look
- Glue down under the upper parts of the folds before attaching to the cardstock to get it to "behave" and allow you to trim if it ends up being a smidge too long
