Experiment with Card Folds
Every once in a while, it’s good to shake up your card-making routine by using a different technique. This card features an easy fold that allows you to see both sides of your pretty Designer Series Paper.
It is called a Drapery Fold or Pleat Fold, and you can find some videos on how it’s done on YouTube.
Try it with your favorite paper!
This sample shows the Autumn Traditions DSP, which is a retired Stampin’ Up! paper from the 2009-2010 Annual Catalog, a card base in Tip Top Taupe, and a Whisper White layer.
Whichever paper you choose, just color the Flowering Fields flowers with Stampin’ Write markers in coordinating colors. Punch them out with the Extra Large Oval punch.
Layer the flowers on a coordinating paper die cut with the Stampin’ Up! Ovals Framelits. The colors shown here are Perfect Plum, More Mustard, and Always Artichoke.
Punch the Bitty Butterfly in Perfect Plum and adhere it with a Mini Glue Dot. Use the Curvy Corner Trio Punch to add a pretty detail to the bottom right corner of the Whisper White layer.
To finish off this card, stamp the banner from Endless Thanks in Always Artichoke, and stamp a sentiment from the same set on the banner in Perfect Plum. Snip out the banner with your Paper Snips and add it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Now you have a pretty fold to show off your favorite double-sided paper! Why not give it a try today?
