Hey Roadies! It's Julia here on the blog today with a fun layered card design. Layering is a great way to add lots of product together and gives a really fabulous dimensional look.
When layering I like to layer quite a few different things together. It usually starts with paper, then die-cuts and then a lot of embellishments. Mixing it up adds texture and interest as you put many different things together. There's really no hard and fast rules for layering. Just keep adding bits and pieces until it feels right.
To start with I like to gather a bunch of items that I think would look great together and then play around with them. They don't all make the final cut. Those that don't get set aside on my desk because odds are, they'll work right into the next design.
For today's card I've layered lots of trims, embellishments and die-cuts together. I'm especially loving the office theme right now. The end of summer has brought back a new appreciation for planning and organizing supplies. Maya Road has some great new releases for Fall and one of them is the Work It Office Die Set. It is a set of dies that all work together. There's fun notepaper, a checkmark, arrows and pencil and stars, just to name a few. This set also layers PERFECTLY with Tabbed File Folder Die and the Notepaper Die. And of course, there's the sweet wood token...an envelope from the Wood Mail Call Tokens. It's the perfect focal point for this sweet card I'll be mailing out to a friend.
Change it Up: This design works great on a card front but you can also use it other ways as well. Try it on the front of a journal, in a pocket page or as an accent on a scrapbook layout!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll feel inspired to get creative yourself!
