Day 1 – 7 Ways in 7 Days 12×12 cardstock – 3 tier slide out interactive card

Find Sweet Stamp Shop & Mama Elephant in Australia at

Sharing is caring!

This new 7 Ways in 7 Days video series showcases 7 projects made by using every scrap of a single piece of 12×12 cardstock, and a handful of other bits & pieces.  I am a bit over having a scrap folder full of bits and pieces, and so my mission in 2017 is to use up what I have before moving on to another project.

I was super keen to try this 3 tier slide out interactive card that I’ve been seeing online lately, and it was much more straightforward to construct than I expected.  #pleasantsurprise  I did not invent this template, it’s everywhere, but if you know who did create it, I would love to give them full credit, so let me know 🙂  I then challenged myself to use up every single piece of leftover green cardstock, and ended up with 7 gorgeous projects … you’ll see a new one every day this week!

NOTE:  This blog post has been amended to include a downloadable PDF with size & cutting details for this project (scroll down).

    Hmmm. How do I print the instructions so there’s the picture plus the rest and not the whole background stuff? You make it look so easy maybe even I could do something like this.

      You could totally do this Dawn! I will see if I can get all the details into a PDF 🙂
