Project - Birgit

This pretty A5 card was made using the Birgit large pyramage together with the full-size background paper.

Print the large pyramage sheet onto good quality white card - smooth 225gsm card was used here.

Print the background paper sheet onto good quality white paper - hammer paper was used here.

Taking an A5 hammer white card blank, trim away a 12mm strip from the right hand side - this is so that the patterned paper will show when the card is closed. Cut out a strip of the background paper measuring 21 x 2.5cm and stick it to the inside of the card blank with double-sided tape so that it can be seen via the cut out part.

Cut out the pyramage pieces with a craft knife and ruler. Assemble the pyramage using sticky pads - the largest two pieces are fixed together with double-sided tape rather than pads so the stack doesn't get too big.

Stick to the card blank with double-sided tape.

Cut the birthday greeting from the large pyramage sheet and mount it onto an 8 x 3.5cm piece of patterned paper with double-sided tape. Fix to the card blank using further double-sided tape.
