Hello my friends!! Time for another Around the World on a Wednesday Blog Hop!!
The theme is Layers
Well here I am down to the wire with a blog post and no card...
So last night I did a late Facebook live and demonstrated a couple cards.
I had an idea to use the New Horizons dsp and the Sports Events Dies and in the back of my mind I am currently using the 2020-2022 Incolors to help remind everyone that their days are numbered and if you Love them...now is the time to stock up as they will be gone soon.
I am so going to miss Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness!!
So onto what I made!!
This card is actually the second card I made, but demonstrates how adding an extra layer gives a card some oomphf!! I used a Bundle Bee Cardbase 5.5 x 8.5", scored at 4.25"
The white layer is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
and the dsp layer is 4 x 5.25"
I used the Free as a bird stamp set, stamping in Memento tuxedo black ink and colouring with Daffodil, Calypso, Papaya, Crumb Cake and Old Olive Blends
Check out my video to see how I coloured them.
I finished with a little sentiment, some linen thread and genial gems.
My first card has all the layers and if you watch the video.
(And while you are there, please subscribe to my youtube channel!!)
You will see it also transformed into a Fun Fold. Since it is night time I could not take my traditional outdoor photo!!
The Misty Moonlight card base is 4.25 x 5.5"
I cut a second piece 3 1/8 x 11", scored at 5.5"
and glued it to the centre of the cardbase.
The dsp is 3 x 5 3/8"
and the dies are from the Sports Events dies and are Misty Moonlight and Whisper White. I chose to use a retired ribbon in my stash that was Blackberry Bliss as I think it goes really great!! You could also colour any ribbon with the Blackberry Bliss Blends to get a similar effect. You can colour the Pale Papaya ribbon ir the Petal Pink ribbon to get something similar!!

I hope you enjoyed my card and that you keep hopping along to see what my friends from Around the World have created starting with my buddy Angie!!
