SPECIAL– HOLIDAY PYRAMID CARDS

As a special treat – we will be making pyramid cards at our November Stamp Camp.  I was first introduced to this unusual fun fold when I was gifted with a beautiful birthday pyramid card from our own Judy Rodzen.  This style really piqued my interest so I developed a card for Christmas and one for Thanksgiving.  These cards collapse and amazingly, fit into a standard A2 envelope for mailing.

The pyramid is held together with Velcro dots.

The Thanksgiving pyramid is made the same way as the Christmas pyramid, but different coordinating DSP is used on each side of the pyramid. The card base is Mint Macaron and the Designer Paper is the beautiful Gilded Autumn.  The sides are each embellished with gilded leaves and pinecones, and gold embossed pumpkins.

Like the Christmas pyramid, when the card is open, there is a triangle to use for your message.

There are several ways to make the pyramid card.  I am creating a step by step tutorial for how I make mine.  The size can vary.  You can work with 5” squares of cs and 4 7/8” or      4 3/4” squares of DSP cut diagonally. You can also make smaller pyramids.  I can see small angel pyramids in my mind.

Which card will you choose to make?  This is such a unique handmade gift to send to family and friends.  My sister-in-law was blown away when she received one I made for her birthday.  She calls it her hat card. These cards take extra time for prep so please let me know as soon as you can which one you wish to make.
