blue and green layered birthday card

Thursday, May 29, 2014

You can probably tell by now that I love the layer style on my cards lately. Today’s is no different.

Cards are perfect for using up scraps. To make layered cards like these, I usually pull a bunch of scraps from my scrap bin in a certain color scheme then layer until I like it, then adhere them down at the end before adding embellshments. Don’t be afraid to use journaling cards in your layers – they often add a great pop of color/text!

This card also uses a letterpress test I did on some chipboard awhile back. (When testing different techniques on scraps, I like to keep the good tests).

One of my favorite things to add to my cards is something personal  – whether it be a date or the recipient’s name- so they know I made it custom for them. I just think it adds a special touch.
