Lori’s Layered Card

By | 07/25/2016

Happy Birthday Lori!

My sister loves layered cards.  Since today is her birthday, I thought I’d make her a card with a ridiculous amount of layers.

6 layers.  All of the layers are 1/4″ smaller than the layer they sit on with the exception of the top layer.  That one is only 1/8″ smaller than the real red layer peeking below it.  I just wanted a hint of red around that fabulous Serene Scenery Designer Paper.  That is a 6 x 6″ paper stack with photo like images.  They are all pretty, serene, and they work great for stamping on!


When I stamp on designer patterned paper I love to use large sentiment stamps.  This is the Stylized Birthday stamp.  One of my favorites.  I love script fonts and this looks like actual handwriting to me.  I did emboss this in white embossing powder to give it a nice shine when she opens the card.


You can see that I also added a little enamel heart embellishment.

Not perfect, but quick and easy to create.  I do love my Stampin’ Trimmer for cards like these.  You can create it in about 15 or 20 minutes (or less is you already have the design planned in your head)!


I also decorated the inside just to let her know what she means to me and I think the sentiment inside says it all!

I couldn’t resist adding the leftover strip of the designer paper to the inside.  It’s just too pretty not to use up!

The inside sentiment is from one of Stampin’ Up!’s original photopolymer stamp sets that is only available online with this link:  Lovely Amazing You.  The envelope is decorated with the Better Than Email stamp set that qualifies as an Angel Policy stamp set that you can use if you are selling your cards and creations.
