Layering A Card Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the “Layering A Card” Technique as shown on page 33 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit our challenge blog at where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Bethany's Blog, you are on the right track! 

For my card I started out by cutting the flower card from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge at 4". I trimmed the card so that I used only the card front. Using scraps of White Daisy, Garden Green and Buttercup Cardstock I stamped images from the April SOTM in contrasting ink colors. I added those pieces to a scrap of White Daisy Cardstock and then used 3D Foam tape to pop it up and give it some dimension. I finished the outside of the card with a piece of ribbon and some Mocha Pearls.

Not one to waste I used the negative images from the cricut flowers to decorate the inside of my card! The finished card size is A2 ( 4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
