Hi everyone, back with Sunday Scoring it has all been a bit manic here, following an adventurous holiday involving being evacuated from a roller coaster and holidaying with a hurricane I have also been meeting up with fellow demos, which is where I will be when you read this, I am a bit behind – So I had to come up with a quick post for this week having missed last week. It’s a bit of a cheat really, as there is only a single score on each piece of card but that does mean it’s a quick and easy card, using some of the new DSP. You can get two cards from a single sheet of DSP 🙂 I have decorated it using some new dies too. These are from the Christmas Pines set, and I have seen them used to make mini pineapples too! They are in the Autumn and Winter Catalogue HERE (and even better they are part of a bundle so you get 10% discount when you buy both stamps and dies) but we never know what will or won’t be carried over to the main catalogue – I think these are really useful for your stash and will be useful for years to come, so I suggest you pop them in your basket soon.
So on with the instructions….
Card: 3 pieces of card 4×4 inches (10 x 10cm) in the colour for your base
One piece 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ (9.5 x 9.5) for the inside in a pale colour – I used Whisper White
DSP: Three pieces 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ I used some Specialty Designer Series PAper – Presents and Pinecones
Attach the DSP to the card. Score all card and DSP panels diagonally in half.
Glue one piece of card on top of the other.
If you are going to post your card, adhere the cardstock pieces slightly outside the score lines as this will help it to fold flat
Attach the 3rd square underneath.
Add a 3.75 x 3.75 (9.5 x 9.5 cm) Whisper White, scored down the middle to the centre at the back
Fold your card into the pyramid. Make 2 pencil marks where the tip at the back stops
Make a cut in the card stock, connecting the 2 pencil marks, this will then allow you to tuck the point in to keep the card standing up.
And you are all done…. I added the pinecones and sprigs using fine tip glue, I designed the pinecones so that they will fold flat too – 3 pinecones scored down the middle and glued together.
I hope you enjoy making this – don’t forget to shop with me HERE It is only possible to keep bringing you free tutorials due to customer support.
