Full radius bends

Hello, all.

I'm rather new to solidworks, so I may be missing something obvious here: I'm trying to model a constant-thickness plate, which is formed to a given radius in one direction and then folded a few degrees along a line perpendicular to the original axis. I can make the full-radius bend easily with a wrap feature, and I can make the perpendicular bend using sheet metal features, but I can't figure out how to combine the two bends in one part. Is there any way to do this in Solidworks 2012?

 

The two attachments show what I'm trying to do a little more clearly. Any light you can shed would be most appreciated.
