I know it’s a little late in the day for coffee, but I’m still enjoying the second pot of the day trying to fight a headache and lack of sleep.  So either grab a cup of coffee or whatever you drink (baileys?) and join me  . . . Smiley from millan.net

The other day I showed you another example of using Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven and a floral image from TwistedPapers.com.  I mentioned then that the image would probably become a card and I finished it this morning.

When I was searching for a name to call this technique nothing came to mind right away, so I settled on 3D Images.  Since I made the first post with this technique, I’ve heard from some of you and also read, that this is also called a pyramid card . . . well hell that certainly makes sense . . .  Smiley from millan.net  I will blame my lack of imagination on drugs.  If you watch the video tutorial closely, you might find glazed over eyes!  Yes, I’m sure you will.

Well anyway, here’s my finished project.

I also thought it would be fun to post a close-up of all the layers.  I’ve seen some of you making the pyramid without foam tape between the layers and I like the look of them too.  I just can’t resist using the foam tape to add more dimension.

The outside edge of all the Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven and the embossed areas of the Classic Lace Border are sponged with Antique Linen.  The paper (Graphic 45) was sewn to a cardstock layer, then those edges plus the stitching were sponged in the same in.   A big silk bow ties it all together . . . gotta love this silk ribbon Smiley from millan.net

Thanks everyone for sending me links to your pyramid/3D cards which you upload them.  I love seeing what you’ve done . . . keep the links coming.


Thanks for stopping by today  . . . . remember – life is short, enjoy the adventures the day brings you!

  1. Sherry, I loved this card! Absolutely grand! I want to try my hand at it, but am sure it will fall short of your beautiful card. Thank you for the tutorial. You are great!

  2. Hi Sherry! Just stumbled upon your blog through Twistedpapers Facebook page. I’ve been sitting here for the last hour browsing through your GORGEOUS creations! You are one very talented lady–with a great sense of humor!! I love your “tell it like it is” attitude–you seem very down to earth–a very wonderful quality you just don’t see in too many people any more.
    Love your video tutorials too, especially this 3D/pyramid card. I have got to try this! I have been putting it off because at first I thought “what a waste of paper”. I guess you could still use the negative part of the paper that you diecut. Maybe I’m just a cheapo!! With six children, I HAVE to be!! Papercrafting/scrapbooking can be a pretty expensive hobby and I try sooo hard to not buy every new product that comes out. I am in love with the Spellbinders’ dies–I think they are very well priced and you get so much more opposed to the steel dies that you are going to spend just as much on and only get one shape. I have to admit though that I am totally in love with the new Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix. Have you seen them? Absolutely STUNNING! He is such a genius and everything that guy creates is a masterpiece! Man I wish I could be in that guy’s head for one day. And he seems like such a sweetheart.
    Well, I didn’t mean to write a book–I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to share your fabulous ideas & projects and for the very informative tutorials. I will definitely be visiting your blog on a daily basis!! Take care & have a great day!!

  3. What a wonderful card. I love the look and will have to try this technique.

  4. Love this card and technique! For a Valentine I used a Valentine postcard sent to me by a friend. Did I break any laws??? Anyhow I copied that card (beautiful roses), cut the steps out w/Spellbinders and viola a “recycled” card that I sent back to my friend!!! She was amazed. Thanks for your sharing spirit and givng us a glimmer of your talent.

  5. WOW what an impressive card. Hope to try this technique soon
