Building layers for your card

Fabi Ormerod

Posted on August 29 2017

Hello everyone!

Here is Fabi and I am excited to share with you my latest creation for our LDRS Creative Design Team.I love to create layers and I believe that by doing this, we can add a bit of complexity to our projects (but not extra work!).

LDRS Creative has a huge line of dies, you can check all of them going directly to this page here.

If you are wondering which are these gorgeous turquoise and pink papers from...They are from our Time for Tea Paper pack!

My idea for this card was to build layers.

I thought that our Basic Stitched Flags Die Set would be perfect for it. I have diecut one sheet of paper with the bigger flag and also some smallers one N, that I saved to use in another projects. Then I did the same with the pink paper. 

Doing this, I made a better use of my paper and also have some die cut shapes at my stash, ready to create other projects.

I could have used one of the smaller flags, but I wanted to add a bit of flair using a different die, and decided to cut a scrap that was left of the turquoise paper, with the cute tag from our Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set.

To add a bit more of layers, I die cut one doilie using the Dewdrop Circle Die and one sheet of a light rose paper (from the same paper pack listed above). Then, I have divided this doilie in two halfs and applied in opposite sides of the pink flag. I wasnt yet satisfied with my, I took one flower from our Soft Blush Cut Outs and also split it in two and added in opposite sides of the flag.

Now that the base for my card was done, I took another look and tought: Well, why not another layer? But this time I wanted just something small and cute. My choice was a little heart button die, from our Fancy Squares & Little Things Die set.

 Now that all was cut out, it was just a matter of mounting my card. To finish it, I have choosen the sentiment "Talking to you makes my day " from the Best Friends stamp set.

I also used the little swirls from the very same set to add a few more detaild to the turquoise, bigger flag. 

Hope you enjoyed this card!
