More Than 3 Layers Challenge

I’m back this afternoon to share my first DT project for Sentimental Sundays.  The theme for this week’s challenge is “More Than 3 Layers” and we are fortunate to be sponsored by Paper Pretties.

I chose Pink or Blue  for my card, as I have a friend who is due to add to her family any day now – I played the odds and made a pink card for the challenge, you’ll soon know if I made the wrong choice as there will be a similar, but distinctly blue card making an appearance 😉

I coloured the image with Pro-Markers, adding touches of shadow to the stork with a blender pen and a little Cool Grey 1.  The frame was cut on the Silhouette, and I threaded a 3mm pink satin ribbon through the cut-outs, finishing off in a bow to the side.  For the bottom layer, I embossed a piece of white cardstock, using a quilting folder and then gently rubbed a pale pink chalk ink pad over it to highlight the embossing.  I popped it up on foam pads to add a little depth, and added a strip of pale pink card beneath the image.

Finally, the sentiment and stitching were both created using the print and cut option on the Silhouette.  The sentiment is one of three included with the image.  The little heart was made from scraps of the pale pink cardstock under the image.

I think I managed 5 or 6 layers on my card – how many can you add to your card?  Make sure you pop over to Sentimental Sundays and show us – hope you have time to look at the other DT projects while you’re there!

Less Is More – New Baby

Allsorts – Buttons and Bows
