People realize that when baking a cake or if building with Lego, there are certain recipes or methods to follow to achieve the best results. Kardtects Building Cards has simple methods and tips to follow as well. It is called the Kardtects Building Cards system.
Just like Legos can’t be simply stacked on top of each other, but must snap together in a certain way for building, so does Kardtects have a certain way for building. For Kardtects, there are 3 basic steps to follow. They are STAND, LEAN, and OVERHANG.
In order to make a card STAND, another card must LEAN against it or it must LEAN against another card.
This LEAN is easily done, and amazing structures can be build by getting the knack of it!
For a beginner, use a card stand to practice the lean. To do this, place a card stand on a card and STAND it. Now simply Lean another card against it to get the feel and knack for the lean. Lean it so the corners touch, and there is a bit of an edge leftover in back. Not a lot. It shouldn’t lean too far out or stand up too straight.
Take the side card away, and try it again. Or add a card to the other side.
Keep doing this until you get the Knack of the Lean!
Now try doing it without the card stand. Stand one card and keep hold of it while you Lean the side card on to it. The Lean will provide a balance for both cards to Stand.
Try this a few times. And then add the other side card.
And then add a front card to make a square.
NOW the OVERHANG. Just like Stand and Lean, the Overhang is important. It is part of the Kardtects Building System.
On top of the square, place a card so that it sits on opposite cards of the base. Leave an Overhang. Meaning, some of the top card must overhang over the base side. This not only helps secure the base, but provides space to build another level of cards on top.
The second, third, and fourth roof cards are all placed the same way going around the sides at 90 degree angles of each other.
There will be an inner square left over in the middle. This can be covered by a fifth card, or left open.
These basic three steps, Stand, Lean, and Overhang, are called the Kardtects Building System. Once this is learned, then imaginations can build anything!
And Just like certain amounts and types of ingredients must be added to make a cake to make it taste the best, these three ingredients, Stand, Lean, and Overhang, of the Kardtects Building System are used to make building card houses incredible fun.
The sky is not the limit! Build a Rocket Ship and go past it! Imaginations are endless with Kardtects!
