Pyramid Card for Helen

My Stampin' Up! upline, Helen, showed me this card on the web (stampowl.blogspot.com) knowing I would have to have a go, then I could show her how to do it - crafty(!) isn't she!!

I used one of my least favourite colours, Green Galore, as I was just having a go, and teamed it with the black polka dot paper from the Night and Day speciality designer paper pack (Mini). As the card started to come together I could see the large flowers from the Greenhouse Garden stamp set falling down the front, stamped using Green Galore and Basic Black. I tied this version together with some of the white grosgrain ribbon that I inked using Basic Black (as Stampin' Up don't have a plain black ribbon - YET (hopefully - please!)). The small sentiment is from the Tiny Tags stamp set (Mini) which I punched out with the Word Window punch and layered onto basic black. I also punched out the branch from the new bird punch (Mini) in the same colours.

Take 3 pieces of 10cm x 10cm card and fold them corner to corner to form a triange. Open them out. Lay the first piece down with the fold going from top left to bottom right. Take the second piece, and with the fold going from top to bottom (so it looks like a diamond) line the top right edge up to the fold of the first piece (corners must meet in the middle at the top) and stick. The last square needs to have the fold going from top right to bottom left, stick this to the diamond shaped second piece, again lining the top right straight edge up to the fold of the second (diamond) piece. Once all the pieces are glued together fold it to look like a pyramid. This version was tied closed using ribbon. Clear as mud.........................................!
