It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 12 - Lots of Layers

Hello everybody             

Welcome to another  Digi Choosday challenge.  This week’s challenge is ‘Lots Of Layers’.

Followers of my blog will already know that I like to add embellishments (lots of) to my cards in the form of ribbons and glitter, but especially I love love love decoupage.  There’s nothing more satisfying than sitting down with a pair of scissors and a sheet of paper or two and cutting out itty bitty little bits of images and then layering them up to create something beautiful.

The Work & Play 9 2XL Love collection (click on the Thumb Linky below for the collection)  has some fab design sheets included on it that have lots of little things to cut out and so this week I’ve chosen to work with Design Sheet No. 2 from the collection which features a little princess and a carriage, which could be used as a bridesmaid or a bride, or in this case I’ve taken a different slant on the image and used it as a prom card.  It’s nearly the time of year when all the school/college leavers will be thinking about what dress they should be wearing and hairstyles etc, so this image makes a great card for that occasion.

I’ve used a die called X Cut which is an extra large one to make the shape of the card and the layers but the rest of the design has been taken from the wonderful Work & Play collection including the hearts and the lovely faux scrabble tiles in shades of pink and beige and white.  I just adore these scrabble tiles.

Here is my crafty make.

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • White card
  • X Cut Extra Large Nesting Dies (Square Paranthesis) for the card shape and the matting and layering
  • Lilac card
  • Card for printing the design sheet on
  • Scrabble tiles for ‘On Your Prom’ from the Work & Play collection
  • Pinflair Glue
  • Glossy Accents
  • Cosmic Shimmer – Cosmic Twinkles Glitter Glue

I can’t wait to see your creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home d├ęcor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.      

Take care
