How to make curtain fold cards with Simply Elegant designer series paper


I’ve seen many really pretty curtain or drapery fold cards over the years but until now I’d never made one. They really are much more simple than they look! The tutorials I found were all in inches but I prefer to use metric measurements when making cards to I came up with my own version. Here’s the first one I made…

This Simply Elegant designer series paper is very aptly named, all that beautiful foiling really is elegant! This photo may give you a better appreciation of it’s shine…

I’d love you to watch my video on how to create this type of card, just click on the image below…

To make the card I share in the video you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Basic Gray card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, score and fold on the long side at 10.5 cm
  • Basic White card measuring 10 x 14 cm for the inside
  • Simply Elegant designer series paper measuring 10 x 30.5 cm
  • Simply Elegant trim and rhinestones to decorate
  • Versamark ink and Black Stampin’ Emboss powder

Here’s the finished card from the video…

I absolutely love the shine you get with the heat embossed sentiment…
