Tropical Fabulousness

This double drapery fold is very Chic isn't it?  I had so much fun designing and creating this card! To make the double drapery fold, I needed a 5" x 10" piece of paper. This DSP is 6 x 6 inches. Soooo I simply taped two pieces together. The fold in the middle hides the seam. The measurements for this double drapery fold are (in inches):

  • Designer paper 5 x 10 
  • On the simply Scored Board with the 10" across the top - score at 1, 1-1/2, 2-1/2, 3, 4, 5-1/2, 6, 7, 7-1/2, 8-1/2, 9
  • Make a tittle pencil mark at 4-1/2 and 5-1/2 - top and bottom
  • 5 at the top, make a pencil mark at 2 and 3 - top and bottom

I LOVE how the greetings from Itty Bitty Greetings fits in the Thinlit from Stitched Labels.

Stitched All Around

Stitched All Around is not just a stand alone set. It's made to be used with many other stamp sets. There are many other stamps that will fit inside these lovely shapes. All but 2 of the stamps in Itty Bitty Greetings fit in the top Thinlit. I just got this bundle yesterday and began designing and planning right away. The first thing I did was to take a good look at the Thinlits. I cut each of them out to see what they looked like. It's interesting to me that a few of them don't really cut out they just cut a design into the cardstock (bottom 3 on the left). I made up a chart to show each piece and what size they are.
You see the Thank you stamp in the second card? That space for the text is 1/2 inch wide and you can stamp any greeting you like from Itty Bitty Greetings and adhere it on top!
