Drapery Pullback Card Update

Good morning followers,

This morning I decided to create another Drapery Pullback Card using the file I created and posted on my blog.  I found that it was easier to score the lines AFTER you cut into the cardstock.

The corrected file can be found on my original post HERE.

Thank you for following my blog!

This is Why I Blog

I received this kind comment early today:

Hello Beth,
This card is stunning.  I was looking for a card that was different from the normal "thank you" style card and this is it.  Thanks for being my GO TO for inspiration.  Have a wonderful day.
Sheila, the newbie

THANK YOU SHEILA!
