Choose a set of spellbinder dies that will give you a nice sized shape to work with. I used 3 different sizes ranging from the largest, second largest down to the third largest.

Step One:

Fold your piece of cardstock in half. Place your die under your folded cardstock with the folded edge to the top. Place your die so the top part is out from under your cardstock as shown in diagram, this ensures your 2 pieces will remain joined. 

Step Two:

Once you have cut the main card and embossed. Cut just one shape from your die the same size with 1 piece of unfolded cardstock. Once again emboss.

Step Three:

Using your next 2 sized dies and your choice of colours cut 2 of each size one being for the top and one for the bottom and emboss.

Step Four:

Now go back to the first piece we cut and choose which side you want to be your right side whether it be embossed or de-bossed and fold the top half in half towards you. When positioned up this will become your easel to position the top of your card. 

Step Five:

Add adhesive tape or glue to the half you have folded down and adhere your 1st single shape you cut to this then layer the shapes you cut alternatively. 

Step Eight: 

 Embellish to your hearts desire. 

TIP: I do my stamping before I adhere the final die cut to the card and embellish once it is altogether.
