Good morning friends! Today is Day of Giving Friday where I have a card to give away to one of my wonderful readers. I just love layering dies, it gives cards the extra prettiness and depth that say ‘this is special’ and beautifully handmade with care. Layering and the variety of textures leads the eye right in to the sentiment on this card for a special little highlight. Now you can’t pile everything on, but most of us have these dies in our stash and there’s nothing like layers to help you use those things you’ve collected.
The card uses those classic dies we love so I thought I’d give you a quick run down. The base of the card is made using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and Spellbinders Labels Seventeen. If you’re not familiar with how to make a hinged base for a shaped card – I have a quick tutorial HERE. For the frilly prettiness I’m using as the focal panel on the card I stacked from the bottom up using Spellbinders Delicate Doilies, Spellbinders Classic Circles SM, Spellbinders Venetian Motifs and lastly an element from the Delicate Doilies set. The background is embossed with a portion of Spellbinders Framed Petite Labels Embossing Folder.
