Pressed Petals Double Drape Card

Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to show you how to make a double drape card. I've been wanting to make one of these for ages and as I was surfing YouTube this morning, I found a great tutorial by a US Demonstrator called Tx Stamping Sharon, so I thought I would give it a try.  So here goes...


1 piece rococco rose stock 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8" to make a tent fold card base
2 pieces of very vanilla card stock 4" x 5 3/4" (one is for the inside)
1 piece of pressed petals dsp 3" x 10", scored at 1", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 3", 4", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", 6", 7", 7 1/2", 8 1/2", 9"
1 piece of rococco rose scalloped linen ribbon 6" long
Scraps of rococco rose card stock to punch out daisies
Daisy Lane stamp set
Medium daisy punch
Rococco rose ink
Old olive ink
Multipurpose adhesive
Glue dots
Rococco rose faceted dot
Tear and tape


Fold and burnish the card base.

Carefully score the dsp as detailed above in the materials list.

Now we need to make the shape on the bottom of the strip of dsp.  Find the score which is at 4 1/2" and place this in the gutter line on a trimmer and
swing the other end out to 1 1/2" (see the picture), then slice off the diagonal.  

Flip the dsp over and find the 6" score and do the same as before (see picture).  If your finished piece looks the same as this picture then you have done it correctly.

Then you should have a 1" piece in the centre of your piece of dsp, this is where you start to fold, one side at a time. Fold the first score down, the next back, the next down etc until you get to the end. Turn the dsp round and do the same to the other side, you should end up with a piece like this (see picture). 

Lay the top of the folded strip on to a piece of tear and tape to keep it together but don't remove the backing yet (see picture). 

Stamp two/three of the large fern leaves about half way down the very vanilla card stock. 

Carefully remove the backing from the tear tape and adhere the draped dsp across the centre of the card layer so that the bottom drape is level with the bottom of the very vanilla card layer (see picture).

Add tear and tape to the reverse side of the ribbon, pull off the backing and lay the ribbon across the centre of the card, covering the top of the draped dsp (see picture).

Stamp the sentiment to the top right hand side of this piece and then adhere this to the front of the card., leaving a small border all the way around the edges.

Stamp a sentiment on the other piece of very vanilla card and adhere inside the card.

Punch out 3 daisies with the medium daisy punch and layer them on top of each other , arranging them so that each layer of petals overlaps the one underneath and adhere each layer with a glue dot.  Curl the petals to give the flower some dimension.  Add a couple of glue dots to the back of the flower and adhere to the ribbon on the card front and add the faceted dot to the centre of the flower.

I hope that you like this card and will give it a try.

Happy crafting,

Karen XX
