Challenge #15 - Layer it UP
OOOO layering is such fun especially with all the fabulous dies and die cuts around these days. For the die cut I used Card 3 from Monica's Creative Room. Monica is one of the most talented and generous electronic die cut creators, her dies are intricate but stunning. For this card I started with a silver blank, the next layer was the white die cut which is almost the same as the black layer you can see in the card. Next I used some hand made paper I collected on my travels and cut the flower shape. The next layer is the black layer and then I added a lacy doily cut, this was a disaster as the hand made paper was not dense enough to cut properly. In the end, to solve the problem, I glued the hand made paper to some regular 75gms copy paper and let it dry. Cutting worked perfectly after that. I cut the small doily out of black card and to finish off lots of glass gems. The tag layers are hand cut and the Happy Birthday die is from Desire.
