If you've ever checked on Brian King and his works of art, he doe a LOT of layers and they always look wonderful. When I spotted this idea earlier this week, I wanted to give it a go, but with my own color combination.
I had to make my own choices on measurement since they weren't shared, so after my first attempt that didn't work (see the card on your right below), I tried again and came up with the card on your left below and the card above.
The measurements for the best results are:
Base - Mint Macaron - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black - 5 1/4" x 4"
Calypso Coral - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Basic Black - 3 3/8" x 3 3/8"
Mint Macaron - 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Basic Black - 4 1/8" x 2 3/8"
Whisper White Thick - 4" x 3 1/2" (to start with)
Stamp Blended Bloom (soon to retire) towards the upper and left on the Whisper White, then lay the
stamped image onto your cutter and measure in 2 1/4" cut up to the flower, lift your blade and then start cutting from the other side towards the flower.
I just cut close and then snipped the rest of the way to the flower with my paper snips so I didn't go too far. Then fussy cut around your flower to the right of the cut and up to the top.
See how this one above was way too far off... it didn't work at all! Learn from my trial and errors. :)
Stamp with your favorite sentiment. I used Rose Wonder for both of these.
Attach the pieces together as shown above. I added Stampin' Dimensionals under the cut side of the flower and under the sentiment section that hangs over.
Thank you for looking in today - I hope you like this color combo. ~ Donna
