A Card with Layers and Multicolor-Stamping

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a card with LOTS of layers and details.

Once in a while, I love making cards with tons of details...
Today's card is one of those!
I simply could not help adding more and more layers of stamping and embellishments.

Garden Silhouette Stamp Set

A card with layers usually comes with three basic elements:
1. background: it's the foundation of the card. I chose to stamp around the border with Garden Silhouette Stamp Set as they give such a subtle and soft feel to the design.

2. focal point: I used a frame die in Gold Foil paper as it draws the eyes to the center of the card. In this case, I stamped the sentiment in multi-colors.

3. embellishments: I created some simple floral embellishments with Washi Tape. These embellishments make the card look even more appealing.

A card like this requires few skills, yet with some advance planning, it is easy to create! 

miss you my friend

When you are stuck with card ideas, think of the three elements (background, focal point, embellishment) that I mentioned in this post.

Such beautiful details on your card. Love the gold frame and the amazing fussy cutting of that washi.

I'm sorry, but I have been on a "stamp buying freeze" ever since Mother's Day and continuing until after I come back from my vacation in August, at least. But please know that I really very much appreciate all of your posts!!! I do miss your videos, but I understand why you don't do them anymore. People can be & are so cruel. (I had originally found you on StampNation and have been following you ever since.) As much as I love your posts, please understand that I can not buy anything at this time. You will always have a loyal follower in WV!!!!!
