  2. Step 2

    Make a pencil mark at the bottom center (2 3/4").

  3. Step 3

    Cut layering pieces for the panels (for the sample, the panels are 5 1/4” x 4” and 5" x 3 3/4") and mark them at bottom center. (For other sizes, reduce measurements by 1/4" for each layer.)

  4. Step 4

    Cut the card front from the score line to the center point on both sides.

  5. Cut the layering panels in the same way.

  6. Step 5

    Assemble the layers.

  7. Step 6

    Adhere the central panel to the card base.

  8. Adhere the smaller panels onto the central panel only, lining up corners with the edges of the card.

  9. Step 7

    Embellish the card as desired to complete the project.
