A Gnome Holiday

0 11 Comments

Today I am sharing a different card design called a layered cube card.
This card folds flat to fit into an envelope.

To decorate my card I have used a USB from Creative Crafting World called The Paper Pantry Volume VIII.

The collection that I have used is called A Gnome Holiday.

Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.

You will need :

Instructions:

From the USB go to A Gnome Holiday collection. Choose and print two decorative papers and two basic papers.
Then from the toppers print image sheet five at 40% and sheet eight at 60%.

Card Base:

From white card cut a piece measuring 18 cms by 19 cms.
Score at 4.5 cms, 9 cms, 13.5 cms and 18 cms.

Once attached together your card will form this shape.

You can attach all the cubes together and then decorate but I have found it easier to decorate before.
