This month's dare pays tribute to myself, Andrea (EwenStyle), and Diva Christyne (Stampin' with Sugar). Both of us Divas are known for major layering on our cards, so what we're daring you to create this month is a card using lots of layers.
If you want to kick this month's dare up a notch, you can add a flower cluster since I am so fond of them AND use them quite often , or go with a "sweet" theme as per Diva Christyne's blog name "Stamping with Sugar". These are not required elements, but fun options should you wish to use them. Just remember to use at least one Verve product on your creation!
Here is my card using this month's dare...a la LOTS of layers:
Sooo...maybe I took the layering thing off the grid? Well, as a rule, I don't throw out any paper...down to the smallest of scraps. I keep all of my paper collections in plastic zip-lock bags and as I'm done with a collection, I put all of the scraps into the bag. So here, for Maja Design's Vintage Summer collection, I pulled out all those strips that I have saved and added them to this card, after I distressed them a bit. This technique works well with all card making styles, not just shabby. I used Verve's Swirling Hearts stamp for my greeting, a bit of pearl accent in the form of pearl lines and stamens and lastly a pretty metal flower.
