It looks challenging but once you know the measurements it is easy to understand.
You'll just love the way it all fits together to create a delightful card.
Measurements are in UK card sizes. See below for US measurements.
1. Cut an A4 piece of card in half. Fold one half in half again with a bone folder to create your card base. The example here will make a portrait side fold card.
2. Using white or vanilla card cut three pieces for your layers:
3. Cut two backing mats in a matching colouring to your card base:
4. Layer your layers one on top of the other with the largest layer at the bottom. To position the layers I use a quilting ruler as this is transparent and the inches are marked in 1/8".
5. Use a small amount of repositional tape adhesive to fix them in place.
6. Create a repeating pattern over the layered card. Either stamp with different colours or colour a stamped image with your preferred colouring medium.
Large stamps create a more dramatic effect.
7. My example was stamped with black memento ink and coloured with alcohol markers (Stampin Blends).
8. Once complete add a backing mat to layer two and layer three.
It is now ready to be mounted onto your card base.
Add a sentiment using foam pads and embellishments.
