ID: MC Feb16 - Pyramid Card - ECD Live, Love, Laugh, Happy Birthday - Each Of Us card
size: 6"w x 7"h (card closed)

Created: February 12, 2016

It seems one of the gals in my quilling group will be teaching the rest of the group how to make a pyramid card. So needless to say I had to make one again... I think the last time I made one was in 2011 and published in Vamp Stamp News - July issue. You can see that card HERE 

I'm using a bunch of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Live"), ("Love"), ("Laugh") & ("Happy Birthday" 2 words), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE, HERE, HERE, & HERE). 

I'm also using a couple quote stamp from Quietfire Design  

("Each Of Us..."); ("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set)


I scored and folded my pale green Bazzill monochromatic cardstock (see cutting/folding image below). 

I cut butterfly/music notes scrapbook paper and adhered to sides. Added a piece of white lace with Sookwang tape.

Die cut all my words from white cardstock and then red textured cardstock, adhering the 2 layers together slightly offset,

Side 1: Adhered the "Live" & "Love" words

The ivy you see peeking out is part of the inside area.

Side 1


Die cut the ivy sprig (Creative Expressions Sue Wilson "Trailing Ivy") from white cardstock, embossed using my tan mat, hit the leaves direct to paper with Distress mini pad "Shabby Shutters" then lightly here and there with "Forest Moss".

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Added an adhesive backed Velcro closure.

Side 2: Die cut the border element (Creative Expressions Sue Wilson "Gemini Dies Phoenix"), sponged with "Picked Raspberry" and then some "Scattered Straw". Adhered to edge.

eCut the Hummingbird (Designs By Ryn "Hummingbirds 1" set) from watercolor paper, stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Painted with QoR watercolors.

Adhered the "Laugh" word and the 2 carnations. (you can see the instructions for the carnations HERE)

Side 2

Side 3

I adhered the "Happy Birthday" of the edge.

Stamped the quote with the black, clear embossed and die cut with Marianne Designs "LR0240" die set, sponged with the raspberry and the straw. Adhered slightly off the edge.

Adhered the other ivy sprig.

Pyramid Template

 Start by finding the mid point on your long side. (it can be any size you want). As you can see mine is 11"

Measure from the mid point to the end (A1), Then place a tic mark on the side edge (A2) using the same measurement (mine is 5.5"). 

Score from those 2 marks. Repeat on other side.

Along that score line, use the same measurement as for A2, starting from the mid point (A3). Repeat on other side.

Using a quilting or right angle ruler, lightly draw a line to connect and create your bottom point. This should be a square shape.

Now draw a line to connect your outside edges to the center square and cut along that solid line.

Score down the middle

You are ready to fold and decorate.
