Mixed Bunch

mixed bunch Today I thought I would talk about the use of layers on a project. Layering can really make images “pop” on your projects. You can use layering to provide a “matte” for your images and designer paper (like I used on this particular project). I typically use a 1/4 inch matte when layering so that you see just a bit of color pop through behind the image.  You can also use layering to add splashes of color or different patterns to your project. So let’s take a closer look at this project…

Start with a piece of blackberry bliss cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of the Irresistibly yours designer series paper (DSP) which is FREE with a qualifying Sale-a-bration purchase. If you don’t have any of that paper yet, simply cut out a piece of white cardstock and emboss it with your favorite folder. Next, cut out the pieces you will need for layering. For this particular project, I used a few of the patterns from the Park Lane DSP pack. Cut the purple patterned paper to 2 x 3 3/4 inch. Cut the green leafy pattern to 2 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches. Cut a few pieces of blackberry bliss to matte out the DSP…cut one at 2 1/4 x 4 inches and the other one a 2 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches. Cut a piece of old olive cardstock at 3 x 2 3/4 inches. layer all of these pieces together as shown. Stamp one of the Mixed Bunch flower images on a piece of scrap white paper and punch it out with the coordinating flower punch. Layer all of the pieces onto the card front as shown in the pic. For the finishing touches, stamp a little sentiment on some of the scrap green DSP and add a little button with baker’s twine to the flower.  Enjoy!
