3D Card Design - Tutorials by Desire
 

For a change I veered off my normal card designs and tried a new 3D card design. I created a tutorial for this design (see below).  Unfortunately I only could do it in metric measurements (being a South African).  The card stands on its own and it can be folded flat to put in an envelope.  The back can be used for a personal message.


TUTORIAL

Supplies:

1 piece of cardstock 18x27cm
1 piece of cardstock 13x15cm
bonefolder
double sided tape
designer papers (see various measurements below)
My image is 10cm wide and 12cm high
Step 1
Score the bigger piece of cardstock at 15, 18, 23 and 26 cm
Score the smaller piece of cardstock at 1 and 4cm

Step 1

Score the bigger piece of cardstock at 15, 18, 23 and 26 cm
Score the smaller piece of cardstock at 1 and 4cm

Step 2

Pre-fold all the scored lines and put the designer's paper (18x15cm) you want to use in the background on the large area of the bigger piece of cardstock.

Step 3

Fold the other parts of the cardstock up and put the other designer's paper you want to use (18x5cm and 18x3cm) on the backside of the bigger cardstock piece. The area (1cm strip) to put the double sided tape on and the area connected directly to the background area stay uncovered.

Put designers cardstock (13x3cm) on the same sized area of the smaller cardstock piece.

Step 4
Mount the image onto the biggest area of the smaller cardstock piece.  The area (1cm strip) to put the double sided tape on and the area connected directly to the background area stay uncovered.  The pink patterned paper behind the image measures 13x11cm.

Step 5

Remove the backing of the tape, fold over the smaller strip (1cm) of cardstock and glue the strip down to the background. If you open up the lower part of your card it will look like you see it on the picture below.

Step 6

Fold the image up and put some more of the doublesided tape to the edge of the image. Level the upper edge of the smaller cardstock piece with the image, with the upper edge of the background paper (see above), peel off the double sided tape from the 1cm strip and stick the smaller cardstock piece down onto the background design paper.

Step 7

Now stick the bottom of the smaller cardstock piece with the image to the bottom of the bigger cardstock piece (as below).  The finished card should look like above and below.



Thank you for popping in here.  I would love to hear from you if you give this a go.
