Easter Blessings - Layers of Color
Happy Palm Sunday everyone!! Today's card features some of my favorite stamps from Layers of Color : Merci Bouquet , Royal Birds , and Gothic Crosses . I used the Paper Tole technique . This is not simply paper piecing an image, but rather re-stamping your image 2 or more times and cutting out parts of that image to pop it up and make it 3-dimensional. I popped up the largest flowers individually, the middle body of the bird, and the cross (after stamping it directly onto wood). Did I mention how much I LOVE Layers of Color stamps? And I'm NOT just saying that because I'm a DT either. I truly love these elegant stamps--they are so beautiful and they all seem to really work nice together, combining stamps from various other sets. For the window, I cut the shape out of Pretty in Pink using Nestability Labels die and then ran the layer through again with the Textiles embossing folder. I popped up that layer with 2 stacked dimensionals all around so the cross is inset.
