Hi there! I hope you're having an enjoyable weekend. I had a great week taking an online card class (you can see the badge on my right sidebar) and really had a lot of fun. I learned several new techniques too, which I hope to incorporate into my cards from now on. Some of you may have seen these on the Scrapendipity Studio Facebook Fan Page.
The technique I'm showing today is faux layering. Instead of layering each die cut piece and ending with a thicker finished card, this method allows you to achieve the same basic look but without the bulk.
Isn't this a neat look? For this card I used the new feather dies by Paper Smooches, and the 'fabulous' word by Technique Tuesday. I think it looks -- fabulous!
For my next card, I used this technique with speech bubble and square dies, instead of shapes and a word Instead I stamped my sentiment and image. This cute set is also by Paper Smooches, called Perpetual Bliss.
I totally love this sweet vintage telephone!
