Card Connection : Life’s A Picnic

Hi Everyone! A fun post today. I thought that I would share a fun Summer card with you, seeing as some of our International friends are headed into that season, plus warm up you girls and guys that are headed in Winter months. Choosing the Soleil Collection as it has nice warm colours. I wanted to also share with you my process for layering onto my cards.

How  I start this, is by gathering bits and bobs from the collection and laying it all out onto my table for viewing.

I then begin to cull out the pieces I don’t wish to play with and the ones that I would like to add to the card front. Now not always will I use what I have collected either, these items just give me somewhere to start.

I die cut a circle out of some pattern paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad and trim another piece of pattern paper to measure 2 1/2 inches, adhering these to the front of the card.

I decide that I want to make this a really girly card, so I choose some Die Cut Paper and Canvas flowers and adhere them with a brad.

This is the flower all put together, I fluff up the flower so that there is dimension.

Now the layering begins, I normally start with a focal point, that being the library card and strip of scalloped paper in this case, I adhere that with some foam dimensionals to the circle die cut, next adding more height by adding the flower with foam dimensionals, I also add a die cut banner with a flair sticker beneath…I always look at when layering that there needs to be at least even visual aspects of the card so that the eye travels from the top to the bottom of the card.

I then wish to add a sentiment, that I stamp onto some white card stock….I like to know that you can always mix and match collections and that you don’t have to limit yourself to just the one collection, sometimes I find the perfect sentiment that matches the card from entirely different collection and in this case it was one from the Lucille collection…

I trim the sentiment out and adhere to the card with foam dimensionals.

A closer look at the card front. I hope that this card gives you some insight into my thought process for layering and that you give it a try.

Enjoy this Summery card!
