Stepping it Up with Color and Layers

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

If you’re following along this week, you’ll remember the quick n’ simple (but not too plain) card from the last two posts. Scroll up or click here to see the card.

Using the same design, colors and stamp set, I wanted to take it up a step and add more complexity to the card.


I introduced a border stamp and accented the sentiment with shapes cut from Cricut Art Philosophy, then added sparkle with the self-adhesive Silver Shimmer Trim by Close to My Heart.

When you’ve got a design that’s working for you, don’t be afraid to experiment with additional elements and recreate the project in different ways. Or as my little birdie friend would say: “Tweet Tweet, repeat!”
