Decoupage with a Twist

Here are three Christmas cards all using the same technique ... pyramage/invertage (same as decoupage but building symmetric shapes rather than cutting around image). It's all a play on the technique of decoupage.The card that builds up is a pyramage card (built like a pyramid) and the cards that go in are invertage (inverted pyramid). This technique isn't as fiddly as original decoupage, cutting around the image because its basically a symmetrical shape reduced in size as you build up or down. And if your really careful with your cutting you can get to cards from one set of images (a pyramage and a invertage).
I edged the invertage with fine peeloffs. Each card is finished with an organza bow and the pyramage card has a poinsettia from "fred she said", sprayed with glitter for added bling.Hope these cards inspire you.
