CARD: Cool Painted Season Double Pleat Fold Card SAB Stamp Set

CARD

This card beauty features a super cool fold technique known as the Double Curtain Fold, or Double Pleat Fold. This card was designed by Julie DeGuia and she shares directions (and a diagram) for it below. I did a video a few years ago showing the single Curtain Fold that I’ve included as well.

This card features flowers images and DSP from the Painted Seasons Bundle that is available free during Saleabration (ends Mach 31). It used Healing Hugs for the “Get Well Soon” words.
