If today’s card looks familiar to you, it’s probably because you saw it in another color palette during our Dimensional Designs Inspiration Hop last month! I never did give directions for the assembly of the pyramid, or photos of it laying flat, so I thought I’d share some of that with you today!
Here’s another angle of the pyramid card, showing how it ties closed at the back.
My card was formed from 3 squares (mine are 4 1/4″) which are scored diagonally. The decorative pieces are cut from 4″ squares and I’m using 3 triangles on this card. You also need two pieces of ribbon to tie it shut, but you could also use magnets or velcro or some other kind of closure!
Here is a photo the flat lay of the card- start with the square on the left and layer a second square against the score line, then repeat with the third square as shown. From here I suggest folding the card into a pyramid and marking where you will need to adhere your ribbon so it matches to tie together. You’ll want to adhere the ribbon underneath the decorative panels, so start with the ribbon then decorate! (You can catch the live tutorial of the pyramid card on the Scrap ‘N Stamp Facebook page!)
Simply fold the card in half to mail it- this size fits in a 5×7 envelope. I’m still experimenting with sizes to figure out what fits perfectly in an A2 envelope!
Here’s the details & links from how I decorated both cards:
I kept the decorating pretty simple on this one because I didn’t want to distract from the design and I also didn’t want to cover up the paper I stenciled! I started with a vintage letter print
from the new 6×6 pad by IO and layered on the Puppy Love Layering Stencil by Taylored Expressions
. I chose to use Distress Oxide Inks because the patterned paper has a slightly glossy coating on it that I knew regular Distress Ink would not work on.
I die cut some of the Prism Nesting Hearts
from scraps I had on my workspace. The card still seemed to be missing something, and bling was not doing the trick for me this time (so weird, it is almost always the right finishing choice!) so I die cut the word ‘hugs’
from some brushed gold foil cardstock
, and a tiny heart as well for my finishing touches!
Hope you like the card and this little tutorial was helpful! It’s really quite simple to assemble and very fun to decorate!
