Now onto my post today...I am going to be sharing one of my favorite techniques: layering die cuts with the foil paper using Chickaniddy patterned paper and foil paper.. I created this layout using the papers that Leigh shared on her card here on the May card sketch. Hers is the second card down. I absolutely love how the patterns on her card look together! I paired those colors (minus the light pink) with some photos I took of my son. I decided to layer some die cut stars together to create my design. Here is my page.
As you can see, I layered the stars over one another. I made my design in my Silhouette with two layers in mind, one right over the other. I created a custom design where I put a series of larger stars with smaller stars in the middle. I die cut the larger stars out of the white cardstock. I used the negative of that. Next, I die cut the smaller stars into the gold foil paper. Again I used the negative of that. I layered those pieces of cardstock together and they fit perfectly. Underneath the negative of the gold die cut paper I adhered various patterned papers. You can how I created it here.
I stitched over some of the gold foil stars and put stickers in a few of them. All I needed to do was to embellish my page a bit more with brads and cut out word sentiments and I was done.
