Merry & Bright Curtain Fold

This is the last of my cards from my Christmas Card Class in November.

This is it –

Nifty fold on the card, right?

As I was trying to come up with designs, I ran across this neat ‘curtain fold’ design. I loved it! I really had to figure out how to create it. And, I did.

I used a note card sized card. Directions are for this size.

Start with a 5 1/2 x 3 strip of DSP. Make sure you have a nice contrasting pattern on one side.

Score it at 1 1/4, 1 3/4, 2 3/4, and 3 1/4.

Place the last score line on the cutting track of the trimmer and the end on the 1 inch mark of the trimmer.

Make a diagonal cut – for the draping on the card.

Accordion fold score lines. (For some reason, some of my finished strips needed to be trimmed about a 1/16. Not sure why.)

I added a 1 inch strip, scored in half and placed it along the top of my curtain folded piece.

When I adhered this panel to the card, I used a Tear & Tape to make sure it was secured to the front.

Please let me know how you liked the card and free tutorial.

Happy Stampin’
