Technique Tuesday – Drapery Fold!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! This one is super fun because you can use every bit of the Designer Series Paper AND you can see both sides of this fabulous stuff!!! No worries on deciding which side to use!!!

Drapery Fold Cards,

Look how fabulous these cards are!!! You can see both sides of the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper and you can create 2 cards from each piece!!! I got the idea for these cards from fellow demonstrator Margo Richardson at the last Team Meeting! I love sharing ideas with others! Let’s get started!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Trimmer, Simply Score Tool

You will start with a piece of Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 11-1/2″. I used the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Then using either the Score Blade on your Stampin’ Trimmer or the Simply Score Tool, you will score at 3″, 4 “, 6″, 7″, 9″, and 10″ along the long side. Then on the right short side, you will make a mark 1” down from the top. Then using a ruler and scissors or your Stampin’ Trimmer, you will cut a diagonal line from the 1″ down mark to the 3″ score line you created. Now you have your two pieces for the cards above!

It's My Party Drapery Fold,

Now you will fold the Designer Series Paper in a zigzag pattern so that you can see both sides of the paper. I placed this larger piece on a Melon Mambo card base. I added adhesive on the back and on a few of the folds. The top and left side are right to the edge of the card. I stamped the greeting from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set in Basic Black in the right corner. I added some Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine around the top and as the balloon strings. The balloons were punched out from the Balloon Bouquet Punch and I put them on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the little white mark for a glossy look on the balloons with the Chalk Marker! I added a few of the It’s My Party Enamel Dots for a little POP!!

Balloon and Candles,

With the other piece that you cut off, you can create another fabulous card! I used a Mint Macaron card base for this one. When I punched out the balloons for the last card, I punched all three colors with both sizes of balloons. I used one big and two smalls for the Melon Mambo Card and I used the two big ones and one small for the Mint Macaron Card. I stamped the greeting from the Party Wishes Stamp Set in Basic Black and finished it off with a few It’s My Party Enamel Dots!
