Pyramid Card by Sue Smyth

Pyramid Card by 
Sue Smyth 

Hi Bloggers
Today I want to share with you one of my favourite 
ways to make a card.
This is a pyramid card which I have adapted it to
cut out an oval window.

Then decorate the sides and front with 
Megs's Garden papers, flowers, Trinkets and ribbons 

I  have altered the butterfly trinket by 
coating it in embossing solution and sprinkle
with aged rose powder. Heat to melt
but be careful do not pick it up
straight away as it will be hot!

Step 1
Cut 3 12 x 12 cm squares and fold down the diagonal.
You can make this card any size, it does not
have to be 12 x 12 cm just has to be a square

Step 2
Layer one square over the other and adhere in place.

Step 3
Line up oval die on the front panel
(this is the panels that overlap each other) and die cut.
this will just fit through a Cuttlebug or use a Bigshot for a better fit.
Or you can just make your squares smaller at 11 x 11 cm

Step 4
Fold along your previously folded diagonal lines.

Step 5 
Adhere third square along side front panel. 

Step 6
And overlap two panels at the back,
adhere in place.

Use the sides to make a template to trim 
out patterned paper to a slightly smaller size. Then
decorate as desired.
