This card just sort of happened. I had not planned to use so many layers. All I did plan on doing was making a manly birthday card. This isn't the exact card we'll be doing for my class on Saturday, but it is very similar. Once it was completed I realized how many layers there were and decided it may intimidate the ladies. Besides, my pal Lorien stopped by yesterday and I showed her my cupcake card and she said, "Geez girl, there are a lot of layers on that!" When you are a demo it is very hard to separate yourself from cards that you really like making (lots of layers and embellishments) and cards that your customers feel they can duplicate. You don't want to scare your customers into thinking that a good card has loads of layers and lots of bling. Besides, that isn't everyone's style anyway! I used the tree from Thoughts and Prayers on this card (I know you have been seeing this image all over the place!) and the Congrats set. Congrats is a Sale-a-bration set you can get for FREE when you place a $50 order. This is a great all purpose set that will stay in my collection for some time! I hope you are having a great day. I hope it's warm where you are. It's not warm here! Snow was falling earlier, enough to coat the ground. I can't wait for spring!
