Pyramid card

A boys card using some copic free images, this is my first card for the new year.

Pyramid card.

To do this card i made a square card, with a score line through the centre and then diagonally from each bottom left and right corner point to the centre score line.  I then made an additional panel of card the same size as the front panel, with a diagonal fold from one corner to the other.

The additional panel is stuck to the inside of the card as shown in the below images.

I made my boys card using coloured card and some stock backing paper that i have had for some time.  I used my tim holtz distress tool to roughen the edges to make it less feminine and more 'boyish'.  I then used a image that i downloaded free from coloured using promarkers and attached using sticky pads.

I doubled the pads up on the lower foot to have it raised more to give the impression that his foot was coming out of the page a bit more but i am not sure if this shows or not.  I also photographed the flat version of the card so that you can see which pannels need to be covered.  The card also folds flat into an envolope which is great for a different card but with out the additional problem of getting a custom envolope to fit.

I am entering this card into  the following challenges:
