Let's Craft and Create Challenge #175 with Lots of Layers option...


A new challenge has posted at Let's Craft and Create. While "Anything Goes" is the standing option for projects, you can also choose "Lots of Layers" during the month of September. I hope you'll join in on the fun!

I have one set of layering dies that create a three-dimensional floral pattern in a square.  I chose three different shades of purple and cut out each of the layers.

After layering them together and creating my square design, I decided I didn't want to just adhere the square to my card base and then figure out what to do (if anything) on the resulting blank area. I got brave and cut my layered floral square in half with my guillotine paper cutter. 

I then centered one half at the top of my card base and the other half at the bottom. 

In the center, between my two floral sections, I layered three pieces of white cardstock (so that the depth would be the same as my layered flower. I stamped the top layer and added a couple strips of silver glitter tape to cover where the layered purple cardstock met the layered white cardstock.

On the inside of my card I stamped a sentiment to finish it off.

I liked the way this card turned out, and I plan to make a few more with different colors of cardstock and different stamped sentiments.

I hope this card has inpired you to join in on our latest challenge at Let's Craft and Create. We have so many fantastic entries every month, and I always look forward to seeing them. There's also a prize for the winner!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

What a great idea to cut the square in half like that - very cool! I like all the purple layers, too. I have some stencils that are a bit small and I think cutting them in half would work well, too. My card from today happened to have lots of layers, so I entered it into the challenge. :-)

That is a cool layering die. I see a lot of color combos from it. But of course you would start with your favorite purple. That was a great idea to cut the die in two and add a strips in the center. The silver strips adds just the right amount of bling.
