There's nothing more impressive to me (Lauren
) than really well-done miminalist design, but sometimes it's fun to go a little crazy and really pile on the layers
... and the Eyelet Outlet
goodies! For this card I started with a vintage dictionary page and added layers of stenciling, stamping and doodling. The focal point is a Solid Color Paper Flower
, to which I've added a little ink and even more doodling. Since the flower packets contain three sizes, they look even better when you layer them; and a Pink Flower Jewel
makes the perfect center.
To anchor the flower and direct the eye to it even more quickly, I decided to add a diecut flourish made from Glitter Black Washi
. Since Glitter Washi
comes in a bunch of gorgeous, sparkly shades, and some patterned varieties, as well, it's great for making all sorts of accents. For this flourish, I covered a scrap of medium weight cardstock with neat strips of tape, then diecut as usual.
One of my stenciled patterns had some little circles that were exactly the same size as the smallest Black Enamel Dots
in the packet, so of course I had to add a few of those. Inked edges and a folded glossy black cardbase later, my maximalist masterpiece was complete.
I hope you'll be inspired to experiment with a few extra layers in your next card creation!
Hey, I'm Lauren, and yeah...
I have a thing about LAYERS!
