Three piece card - click here for cut file

OK, technically they're six piece cards if you include the second page. These cards are just two pieces bound together in the upper left hand corner with a brad, rivet, eyelet, etc. -- whatever you choose. To make one of these, first select the shape of the card. Then, select a flourish or something that goes from the left end of the card to the right end of the card. Do not weld the flourish. The flourish is intended to cut the card in to three pieces. Next, cut an identical flourish out of another color/type of paper. Replace the original flourish with the flourish you have just cut out. Emboss the flourish if you wish -- I found it adds a nice touch.

You will also have to cut out some type of backing to glue the three pieces on to. I just temporarily moved the flourish on to another page, cut out the backing, and replaced the flourish for future use. On the second page of the card, you can duplicate what you did on the first page or just cut another shape without the flourish as you did with the backing for the first page. The paper is from Sandy Lion and the rivet in the left hand corner is from Chatterbox.

See page 4 of the cut file you will download for this project for this actual card. Here is an example of the card:
