Multi Level Collapsible Pillar Cards

Hello, today I’m sharing a new style card known as a Collapsible Pillar Card.

This card will fold/collapse down to a 6 x 6 size, however you can make this any size you like.

This was a requested tutorial, after receiving a few emails directing me to Jamie Rodgers’s version on YouTube. You can find his larger version here.

This card has a great profile with the layers of acetate, and can be displayed portrait, landscape, or flat.

As soon as I saw this style I knew it would look great with my Space-themed stamps, but I can also see this style working well with any underwater themed stamps and dies. Maybe a pond theme with a fisherman.  Or, the sky, with birds, clouds, the sun a plane etc.
