You Brighten My Day!

If there's one thing I've learnt in card making, it's got to be that there can never be enough fussy cutting, distressing and..layering! yeap you read it right! Layering need not only be used for scrapbooking but it works great on cards too!

And when you have beautiful papers by Basic Grey, it definitely makes it all the more difficult to avoid fussy cutting..and layering! Here's the card I'd like to share with you'll..featuring just that..layers! :)

1) Cut out cardstock to 4x12
2) Cut out three strips of patterned paper
3) Place one strip down, punch the long length of the edges on either side for the other two strips and adhere on top
4) Tuck in some fussy cut patterned papers
5) Add on a chipboard sticker / any image
6) Sentiment of course! :)

Materials Used : American Crafts Cardstock, Basic Greay Sweet Threads Patterned Paper & Chipboard Stickers, Ranger Distress Inks, Ek Success Border Punch, October Afternoon Chipboard sticker
