Sending All the Hugs - Artfully Layered

Hello and welcome to my blog today I have a super cute card to share with you meaning it was made using with products from the Artfully Composed Suite. The Artfully Composed Suite is one of those great products suites that we are saying goodbye to. Almost all the products in the suite are retiring (with the exception of the Faux Sea Glass Elements, and the Vellum Layering Designs) and I just had to share them with you. Here's a look at the card I create to share with you today.

Tips & Tricks:

I started out my doing the Stack Cut & Shuffle Technique. I will link to the how to video for that technique here. It's a great way to showcase your designer series paper. In this case I used the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper to today's card.

Invoke the feeling of paradise with the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper. One side of the printed designs includes a combination of hand-painted tropical plants and greenery with leaves that were cut out of paper and photographed for a unique layered look. The other side of the paper includes small print patterns like stripes, polka dots, and scripty writing. Cut paper down to card front size for backgrounds, strips, layers, or paper elements. For extra artistry, fussy-cut leaves to collage and layer!

After adding the pieces of designer series paper I attached them to a piece of Old Olive Cardstock cut at 3 3/4" x 5". I then attached this layer to an additional mat layer made from Basic White Cardstock. Then I attached the card front to the card base made from a pice of Pale Papaya Cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". That was scored at 4 1/4".

Finishing Touches:

To finish off the card I then cut on of the piece of the Vellum Layering Designs with the largest tropical leaf die from the Tropical Layers Dies. So, I needed some place for this die cut to go and needed a sentiment as well. I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive Classic Ink onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock.

I took the sentiment and then took my Layering Circle Dies and cut out the sentiment. I then added the vellum leaf behind the circle sentiment with some Mini Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals. I then tied a bow made from some Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon that I attached with a couple Mini Glue Dots.
