Seize The Birthday - Layer It


Happy New Year, and welcome to the new look Seize The Birthday Challenge!  Pop over to the blog and you'll see the full impact. Thanks to Ashwini for the great design.


So our first challenge of the year is Layer It.  Layer stamped images, layer card, layer diecuts, whatever you want.  And if layering's not your thing, don't worry, you can still play along with any birthday-themed project.

This is the card I made for my mum's 90th birthday in December.  It's a 5x7 inch canvas board with an easel die-cut affixed to the reverse so that it could stand up.  I cut some flowers and leaves, coloured them with Distress Inks and pens, and layered them up into a bunch, tied with twin.  I also used a layered Skinny Sentiments die from STAMPlorations.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and join in with us.

  6. Oh, wow!! Its just spectacular! I'd love to have a canvas piece like this with me - even making it would be awesome!!! Did you say you cut the flowers and leaves, like it was the easiest thing in the world? It's just spectacular! Love the colors in the background and the way you've colored the flowers and leaves!
