Pyramid Card Tutorial…

After receiving a number of emails from different stampers asking for the measurements for the Pyramid card I created Here I have finally finished them.  I only hope they make sense & you are able to understand.

In fact I created another card very similar to the one linked above.  The measurements have been made to fit an Australian Standard Envelope.

Please excuse the photos as they were taken at night when the light was not the best!

Pyramid Card…

Inside Card…
First up I must aplogise for not having the measurements for you in this post, but if anyone is wanting them, please email me.  I really have to think what I actually used here….



I did this card sometime ago – early September to be exact & did make it with a little boy in mind, but ended up sending it off to my uncle.  He turned 81!!!  He is always stirring me, so I thought this would be a great way to get one up on him…..  He thought it fantastic, but the best part, the great-grandkids loved it!!!!!!

After adhering the base card together using Wild Wasabi & So Saffron Cardstocks, I adhered DSP onto Early Expresso then onto the So Saffron.  This formed the front of the card.

Using my Scallop Circle Punch, I punched a circle with Early Expresso, adhered a circle of Wild Wasabi Cardstock to the top which had been punched using the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch.  I punched another piece of Cardstock in Whisper White with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch & adhered to the top of the Wild Wasabi circle.



Envelope…

I stamped my image onto Whisper White Cardstock using Early Expresso Ink,punched the image with the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch & adhered to the circle with Snail Adhesive.  I stamped the top onto Whisper White using So Saffron Ink, cut it out, dotted some dots using my SU Marker – Early Expresso, placed white gel dots around the scallop with my Gel Pen & adhered to the top of the cone with SU Dimensionals.  The whole scallop circle was adhered to the card with SU Dimensionals. 
For my greeting, I stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock in Early Expresso Ink, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Baja Breeze which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  I again placed white gel dots around the scallop with my Gel Pen & adhered to the bottom of the card with SU Dimensionals.

As I wanted the card to be flat for posting, instead of gluing all sides together, I left one side open & placed 3 SU Dimensionals to the inside of the card.
