Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make a beautiful TRIPLE TIER CARD with a Stand featuring our new TINY TOWNIES on Santa’s lap rubber stamp.
Take the bottom tier card piece and, with the 0.5″ section on the right, measure down 0.5″ on the left side section. Draw a line across. Across the top, place a pencil mark at 1.5″ and 4″ and draw a line from top to bottom. Measure up 1.5″ and draw a line across.
Take the middle tier card piece and, with the 0.5″ section on the right, measure down 0.5″ on the left side section. Draw a line across. Across the top, place a pencil mark at 1.25″ and 3.75″ and draw a line from top to bottom. Measure up 1.5″ and draw a line across.
If you would prefer the tiers to be tucked completely inside each other when the card is closed, move the bottom line down 0.5″ on each piece.
Using a craft knife, cut each side of the pencil line, from the 0.5″ horizontal line to the first or second horizontal line, depending on whether you want the tiers hidden. On this sample I went to the bottom line so that the tiers were completely inside one another.
Take the 0.25″ x 7″ piece of card and slip in under the centre section. Loosely fold it around and trim if necessary. Glue the ends together.
Take the 4-7/8″ x 4-7/8″ piece of card and apply DS tape around the edges. Fold the middle tier on the 5″ score line so that the outside is showing. Apply a strip of DS tape each side of the sliding mechanism. Remove all the tape backing and adhere the panel down. Repeat with the bottom tier, using the 5-3/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of card.
For the top tier, cut a piece of designer paper measuring 4.25″ x 4.25″ and adhere to the 4.5″ square piece of card. If you want to add a gift card holder, measure the size of the gift card and then add 1-1/8″ extra to the width, and 0.5″ extra to the length. Score on each long side and the bottom at 0.5″
Apply adhesive to the 0.5″ sections and adhere the holder down onto the top tier, ensuring it’s towards the bottom.
Apply 1/4″ tape, or wet glue, to the sliding mechanism on the middle tier. Push the mechanism right down to the bottom of the runner.
Line the top of the top tier up with the top of the middle tier, centered horizontally across the card, and adhere it to the sliding mechanism.
Apply DS tape to the outside of the 0.5″ section and lift the backing on one end. Fold the middle tier over and adhere the 0.5″ section to the opposite end, ensuring it’s behind the top tier.
This card is designed to lay flat but if you want to create a stand to display it upright, cut a piece of card measuring 4.5″ x 9.5″. Score on the long side at 3.5″, 7″, 8″ and 9″.
Line up the bottom of the stand with the bottom of the back of the card and adhere.
Decorate each of the tiers.
