Hello, my dear friends from The Ton,
It is my absolute pleasure to share a card with you today. This card has a TON of layers, textures and depth. However it is rather flat and mail-friendly. How awesome is that!
I used 5 sets of stamps and one die (that is a lot, I know!!) to create this card. Here are a few key elements when designing a card with layers.
Background Stamp: I used two large stamps Stripe Addict Background and Marvelous Cling Background. Using only part of the cling stamp can make a big difference.
Border Stamp: it is so easy to add more interest simply by stamping a small portion of it ( do you spy Tribal Chic Borders ?)
Layered Stamps: Fresh Cut Roses is oh so easy for color- layering. The Ton inks are awesome for adding shades of colors since they are perfectly color-coordinated.
Coverplate Die: do you know that you can use part of the Geometric Lattice Coverplate Die as embellishments? Vellum is a perfect addition to add layers without adding too much bulk.
Sentiment: you can stamp sentiment in various colors like I did here with Friends Defined
Little touches: adding your own personal touches makes a handmade card extra special. Black ink splatter and sequins are fabulous options.
Creating cards with layers is easier than you think. With a little planning ahead, you are on your way to make the most unique and original designs. I truly hope that this post inspires you! I want to thank Effie for inviting me to play with her awesome products! Thank you for stopping by!
