Drapery Fold Card

I had fun making a drapery fold card on a recent Zoom class.  It's always fun to pull out a technique you haven't tried for a long time.  Today I'm participating in a Crazy Challenge on Instagram with other demonstrators - we were challenged to make a project using the Simply Succulents Stampset and Happy Forest Designer Series Paper.

I probably cheated a little bit as I only used a sentiment from the Stamp Set and made the Designer Series Paper the star of the show with the drapery fold.  What do you think?


  1. Cut Old Olive cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base
  2. Die cut the front of the card base using Stitched Greenery Die
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 5 1/2" x 12" and score at 1", 3", 4", 6", 7", 9", 10" and 11" along 12" side.
  4. Make a mark 1" from bottom on left side and 1" from top on right side.
  5. Cut on the diagonal from the bottom 1" mark to the top 1" mark.  This will give you pieces to make 2 cards.
  6. Accordion fold on the scorelines from the left side starting with a mountain fold.
  7. Adhere the top pleats together at the top
  8. Adhere the drapery to the card base about 1/4" from bottom
  9. Cut Old Olive cardstock 1 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  10. Cut Basic White cardstock 1" x 4"
  11. Stamp flower image in Calypso Coral ink on left side
  12. Stamp sentiment using Calypso Coral ink on right side.
  13. Adhere Basic White to Old Olive cardstock
  14. Adhere to top of card base using Dimensionals
  15. Adhere Pastel Iridescent Rhinestones
  16. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  17. Stamp flower using Calypso Coral ink in bottom left corner
  18. Adhere to inside of card.
