Hello there! Long time no see ya! I've been hiding out doing a little Spring cleaning and it took ALL of my creative energy to purge and reorganize my craft space. I was able to fill a box with goodies that were taken to a local Senior Center. It feels good to have passed along some well loved supplies for someone else to enjoy.
This was a fun challenge from Betsy Veldman for this weeks Make It Monday. The idea was to create a one layer card and then re-create it by adding some layers. Betsy demonstrated using three cards so I did three also.
While technically this card has three layers to start with, each element is adhered without any dimension so the overall effect is that of a one layer card.
The Aqua Mist mat and the stamped and scored panel are adhered flat. The pinked circle with the attached sentiment and flower image is on dimensional foam adhesive. the butterfly was attached with scor-tape at "the body" only so that the wings were free to lift. The butterfly image is also stamped on the card base under the die cut.
On the third card, I used a technique that I had never tried before. For the stamped center panel, I scored approximately 1/4" on either side of the image and folded the card stock back and secured it with scor-tape giving it a smooth, rounded, edge and effectively a double thickness before I adhered it to the Kraft layer. The bottom half of the sentiment circle is popped up on regular foam adhesive while the upper portion has extra thick dimensional foam. Again the butterfly is attached at the body section with the wings free to lift.
Below you will find a complete supply list. I would love to hear which of these you like best. (The first one is my favorite). I hope you have a great weekend!
