Non-pyramage pyramage !

In these credit crunch days, and times when you have to think twice about how puffy a card can be in order to slip through the slot on the gadget used by the good old PO counter staff, I decided to try something a little different. This lovely dog image has about 8 layers overall..that's great if you are giving the card personally, (although I have to admit I still wouldn't layer it up to that extent..less is more in my opinion !), but when it's going in the post, that's a different matter. I know you can make boxes, but I haven't reached those dizzy heights yet lol, and anyway, it's nice to have a change don't you think ?! So, I separated all the layers and used the alternate ones, which means I still have a set to use on another card, slightly different than the first as I don't have the complete base image, but it will still be acceptable. Hope I'm making sense ! Anyway, I layered the images onto gold mirri card, and then placed them dropping away from each other, until I was happy with the way they looked. If you look closely you will see that I have used two sections on the smaller picture, but I stuck them with glue, as opposed to layering them with foam pads. I used a piece of green backing paper (free with a mag), and added a couple of chipboard pieces and a peel off. Then I drew an outline around the edge of the green backing, using a brown Whisper pen. Hope you like it and thanks for looking !

  1. Hi Anne, thank you for popping over to my blog and for your lovely comments, I'm now a follower of yours :-) Your dog card is lovely, it's a good idea to do the pyramage like that especially when you're posting it. I love your garden flower card too, is it from your own garden? Speak soon, love Rose xx
