This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp club meeting last night. It is a take on the very popular pyramid card that is all over the internet right now. I am not sure who came up with this idea so I can’t give credit to that person. This is a simplified version because the real pyramid card has a ton of layers that open up all sorts of ways with photos, etc., and stands at least one or two inches high. Our card only has three simple layers.
The first layer opens like this:
Then the second layer opens like this:
Finally, the last layer opens to a gift card holder.
The supplies we used are the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set from 2018 Occasions Catalog. The Designer Series Paper is from the same suite and is called Picture Perfect Party. We used the Tailored Tag Punch and the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.
To make this card you need to cut the first layer of cardstock 5.5″ x 1.75″ (we used Peekaboo Peach) and then fold it in half. The Designer Series Paper is 2.5″ x 1.5″.
The second layer (we used Berry Burst) is 8″ x 3″ folded in half. The piece of Whisper White cardstock inside the second layer is 3.75″ x 2.75″.
The third layer (Pool Party) is 11″ x 4.25″ scored at 2.75″ and 8.25″. The Designer Series Paper on the outside of the third layer are two pieces 2.5″ x 4″. The Whisper White cardstock inside is 5.25″ x 4″ and embossed with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. The piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock that holds in the gift card is 5.25″ x 2″.

Such a fun card, Susan! Thanks for measurements!
This is so cute – how have I never seen it before! Thanks for sharing the ‘how to’, Susan – I’ll definitely be trying out this one! 🙂
