A new year has started and the Holiday hoopla is over, for now. The next holiday coming up is all about Love! February can be magical. Some people will get engaged, couples take a date night and show their love in many ways from flowers to candy, but most importantly with a card. Instead of buying a Hallmark card nothing seems to have more meaning than a handmade card. It shows the person took the time to think about what they want to say to the ones they love.
This card is made for a person who makes another person happy. It does not have to mean love. It could be for a friend on Valentines day to just show them how much they mean to you, how much you appreciate what they did or have done for you. Just another nice way to say Thank You on a very special day.
This is a Double Curtain Fold card.
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Merry Merlot base: 4 x 5 1/2
DSP cut to: 1 1/2 x 4 and for the curtain
One piece of Designer Series Paper – 8″ x 3″
Score on one side at 1/2″, 3/4″, 1-1/2″, 1-3/4″, 2-1/2″, 2-3/4″, 3 1/2″ and at 3-3/4.”
Turn and score the other end.
Then make a mark at the short side at 1 1/2″ on each end and on the long side at the bottom at 3 1/2″ on each side, align these two marks in your cutting track and cut (see photo.)
Now begin folding. It will be mountain, valley and so forth and then do the same to the other side.
Here is the link to the video of how I created this card by Ange’s Treasures
Now adhere the curtain to Merry Merlot card front as shown. Take the other dsp and add it to the top. I then added the Lovely Lipstick ribbon around the top of the curtain and bottom of other dsp and then did the same with the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon to make it look like duel ribbon. I then punched out the label in Whisper White, Merry Merlot and the Merry Merlot glimmer paper. I cut the Merry Merlot glimmer paper in half and adhered it to the top and bottom. For the Whisper White piece I cut of the top and bottom leaving just the center piece. I then stamped the “you make me happy” in Lovely Lipstick and attached it with dimensionals and I then attached the whole label to the center with dimensionals. Finally I attached it to the card base.
