Hi!

In this instructable I've documented how to make a pretty, simple and fun layered card. I made this in under five minutes. There can be many variations of this, which I think, I’ll post in a little while as well. Hope you like it…let’s begin ^_^


Things you’ll need:

• Pastel sheets or card paper in any two colors of your choice (I took a brown and dull shade of orange, more peach-ish than orange)
• A steel ruler/scale
• Paper cutter
• A small piece of ribbon (I took a red one, 12cm long)
• A cute looking sticker or a small cute picture
• Tape, Double-sided tape

Start with the orange paper. 

Cut out a rectangle using the steel ruler and cutter. (You can use a regular plastic ruler too but the cutter damages the plastic scale's edges as you cut along it, hence its better to use a steel scale).

Make sure the longer edge of the rectangle is roughly double the length of the shorter edge, so that we get a square when we fold this rectangle in half, as shown in the images. 

Step 2:

Take the cute bear sticker or image and stick it on the right half of the folded rectangle. 
I used a cutout from a plastic file cover instead of a sticker and stuck it to the card using double sided tape (A quicker and neater option than glue).

Step 3:

Now place the orange card we've made on a sheet of the brown paper, and cut out a rectangle slightly (about 0.8 to 1.0cm) bigger than the orange one.
Fold this brown rectangle in half as well, so it resembles a square.

Step 4:

Using double-sided tape, stick the orange card tilted a little, on top of the brown card. You can use glue for this, but again, I feel double-sided tape is faster and neater.
