Two Layers!

C4C125 TwoLayer wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week Lynda Benden has one last challenge for us to finish of her month as challenge hostess.

Lynda has challenged us to make a two layer card!! Lynda says she finds 2 layers are harder than one layer cards! She also told us No cheating!!!

Well personally I have difficulty doing both One Layer or Two Layer cards, arghhhhhhhh! This isn’t particularly my favorite card I have made (it isn’t the worst either LOL!) It I could have used more layers I am sure I would have come up with something better but as I couldn’t this is what I came up with.

I wanted to use this Hero Arts/Sizzix Leafy Fern set, this comprises of a large leafy stamp and an embossing folder so I could emboss over the stamped image. I inked the stamp using a couple of colors of Distress stains and then stamped it onto kraft card. Once the ink was dry I embossed the image using the embossing folder provided.

I am not sure if I cheated by using twine and a button, but Lynda didn’t say we couldn’t (or we could for that matter) so I did! I might have liked to add a tag with a sentiment, but that might be another layer so I left it off Winking smile.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.


Stamps: Artistic Fern – Hero Arts
Paper: Kraft; Green
Other: Peel Paint Distress Stain; Wild Honey Distress Stain; Artistic Fern Embossing Folder; Yellow & Green Twine; Button; Foam Tape.
