The Everyday Collection

I hope this will be the first of many projects I will be posting for you. The card I am making today is made useing The Everyday Collection Card Making CD Rom from Celticmoon Crafts. The CD is available to buy at http://www.celticmooncrafts.co.uk/ourshop/prod_363021-The-Everyday-Collection.html
To make this card you will need the pyramage sheet and matching backing paper from the Everyday Collection CD. You will also need an A4 piece of black card that has been folded in half to make an A5 sized card blank, your favorite glue or double sided tape, and some double sided foam pads


Stick the base image from the pyramage sheet in the upper left of your card as shown. You can use glue or double sided tape for this, whichever you prefer to use.



Place foam pads on the back of the second layer of the pyramid design. This will be the next image down in size to the one you have just used. I always use foam pads for pyramage designs as I find they give better support to the paper. However it is up to you, if you prefer to use glue gel or silicone glue that will be fine






Being careful to match the image with the base layer fix the second layer in place. You may wish to put a bit of glue stick onto your foam pads. If you do not get the layer in the correct possition first time the glue on the foam pads will give you a little time to move it into the right place.








Continue in this manner until all of the layers have been used ending with the smallest image. This will give you a 3D pyramid effect











Cut a horizontal border from the matching backing paper and glue in place as shown













Now cut a vertical border from the same backing paper and glue into place as shown















Trim the exess from the borders. If you wish you can add a peel off greeting to complete the card
