Pyramid Technique

June 10th, 2009 · 7 Comments

Pyramid Technique

It’s been a while since I used this large image from the Fresh Cuts set, but it was perfect for trying out the pyramid technique from this month’s Technique Junkie Newsletter. I stamped the image five times with different shades of green on the same size (3″ x 3-1/4″) Whisper White card stock. The Always Artichoke image was placed at the bottom of the pyramid. Then I removed 1/4″ inch from all sides of the Old Olive image. The Kiwi Kiss image was next (I removed 1/2″ from all sides), then the Mellow Moss one (3/4″) and finally the Certainly Celery one (1″). That last panel only measured 1″ x 1-1/4″ in the end. Dimensionals were placed between each layer, which created the “pyramid” look.

I mounted my pyramid on top of Juntos Designer Series Paper and embellished the card with Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon. May I just say how absolutely delighted I am that Juntos DSP will still be available in the new catalog. And that’s not just because my blog banner was created with those patterns!

Thanks for stopping by!
