It's time to play with The Paper Players! This week, the talented Anne Marie is hosting a color challenge: Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate. I inked up the Simple Stems set for the first time to create my spring thank you card. I hope you enjoy it.
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: It's All About the Layers
This finished card measures 5-1/2" wide by 4-1/4" long.
- Layered petals! The large Blossom image from Simple Stems was inked in Crushed Curry and stamped three times. The bottom layer was punched out using the Secret Garden Framelits, while the top two layers were hand-snipped and popped up on dimensionals.
- Layered patterns! Banners were snipped from strips of Crushed Curry (Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper), Smoky Slate (Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack) and Marina Mist ( Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper), and layered upon each other. The Smoky Slate "thank you" is courtesy of Peaceful Petals.
- Layered lumber! A Smoky Slate Hardwood banner perches atop a Woodgrain textured panel, in keeping with the lumber look.
