For this month's blog hop we are high lighting the Layering technique on page 33 of the Close To My Heart spring/summer idea book. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.
I created a card using the Stella paper pack and a colonial white card base. I used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge only available from Close To My Heart. I cut a 3 1/2" frame in the pink paper, I cut the shape on pg. 51 of the Art Philosophy book in the left side of decorative layer. I then cut a 3 1/4" from the same page on the right side of decorative layer in the blue paper. I cut the Cocoa cardstock for the background of the card base. I then cut a 31/4" circle from the cocoa cardstock 1/8" down and 1" from either side of the card. I then adhered the lagoon piece of patterned paper onto the card base. Next I adhered the cocoa cardstock to the card.front. Next I adhered the sunset piece of patterned paper to the card surrounding the cutout. Next I placed a large silver shimmer brad in the center of the lagoon piece of paper.
On the inside of the card I cut the same shape from page 51 of the cricut cartridge. I cut the sunset piece at 3" and the olive piece at 2 1/2". I placed the olive piece 1/4" from the left side of the card and down 1/4". I placed the sunset piece 1" from the right side and 1/4" down, overlapping the olive piece. I placed a small shimmer brad in the center of each of these.
Next I stamped in sunset on the lower right hand corner the first part of my sentiment, I chose one from the Just A Number stamp set on page 110 of the spring/summer idea book. I chose the saying Inside an older person is a younger person...wondering what happened. I stamped the last part of the saying on a piece of lagoon patterned paper 3/4" x 3" in the lower left corner on the inside of the card. I also rounded the corners of thee lagoon paper. I hope you enjoy using this technique in your future creative endeavors.
