Created by Design Team member-CAROLYN  

Step One: 

First you need to choose 2 sets of complimentary dies, you may also use 3 different dies so each section of the card is a different shape. I chose scalloped ovals small and Beaded ovals. You can make this with more layers but for today’s tutorial I am only making it with 2. 

Step Two: 

Chose the 3 largest sizes of your dies and cut out and emboss 3 die cuts which will form your bottom layers of the 3 shapes.

Step Three: 

Cut out 3 of the next smallest of the dies you cut out in step 2.

Step Four: 

Adhere your smaller die cuts onto the larger die cuts. 

 Step Five: 

Stamp or decorate your shapes to your personal choice keeping in mind you want them as flat as possible so they can move correctly when they open and shut. 

Step Six: 

Place a hole using a piercing tool or a very small hole punch in the bottom of your middle sized die cuts, Then line up your medium sized die cuts that you just hole punched and place it image upside down on the largest die cut and using the hole you placed in the medium one as a guide punch a hole through to the largest die cuts. Adhere those 2 medium and large sized die cuts together with a brad. Now the first 2 layers are attached your card is starting to take shape. 

Step Seven: 

Now moving onto your smallest die cuts cut a hole in the bottom of your stamped image, once again line it up image upside down with the top of the medium die cut punch a hole and add a brad. Your card is completed, Thanks to the brad your layers of die cuts will swivel out and around so they are all up the right way when the card is open. I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial the limits are endless it would be so much fun to try this in all different shapes and sizes you may like to add more than the three shapes that I have added and even add more layers.
