Pyramid card

Remember this fellow? The punched skull that my downline Kelly and I “invented”? I don’t think I ever showed you this card, which started it all. If I did, I apologise.

It started when I was brayering some of this fab Night & Day paper. It’s all black and white and very gorgeous. Like all the Designer Series Papers in the current catalogues, it is retiring at the end of September but as far as I know there is still some available if you want to place an order.

Anyway, I brayered it in So Saffron I think, then did another piece in Rich Razzleberry, which set us off on the “goth chic” route... hence the skull.

And then Kelly showed me how to make a pyramid card. They’re really easy, despite looking complicated. It is just a set of three squares, scored on the diagonal and assembled. Try it – you’ll be surprised at how easy it is. And take a look at Kelly's version, here

  1. I have to admit I'm not a big fan of the skulls trend, but I like how you've created this fella. The rhinestone eyes are kind of cute.

    I really do like the pyramid card! I've never seen that before and I think it's way cool!
