Project - Pincushion Cactus Large Pyramage Card

Lovely prickly pincushion cactus card - it looks like it has two bunny ears!

For this one print:-

To make the card, cover the front of a cream or ivory A5 card blank with the red floral trail paper using double-sided tape.

Cut a 18 x 4.8cm piece of the cream spiky flower paper and a 12.7 x 3cm piece of the cream floral trail paper. Mount both pieces onto larger pieces of silver metallic card and trim round with a craft knife and ruler to leave a small border.

Add a 12.7 x 2.5cm strip of the cream floral paper to the card blank with double-sided tape - around 7mm from the bottom of the card.

Make up the pyramage stack - I've done this one with just another layer of scrap card between each piece, stuck with double-sided tape. 

This was because I came to the conclusion that I have so many pyramage cards made up with sticky pads that are just too thick to post. By making up the stacks with card instead, it makes them much firmer - and more importantly, thinner and less bulky to send through the post.

I'll probably do them all with card from now on......

Arrange the two metallic-card mounted pieces, the pyramage stack and a greeting on the card. When you're happy with the arrangement, stick the metallic-card pieces to the card with double-sided tape, then add the greeting and the pyramage stack with further d-s tape.
