Angled Layers Technique

I found this card at Andrea Walford's blog.  I can't find the link to the project but it's somewhere on her site.  I will explain it so you can make these with ease!

I thought this was a fun technique and a great way to use up those scrap pieces of decorative paper. And we all know how those things pile up, don't we?  I have a stack of them and I really need to use them up.  Though, with the amount I have, I know I won't use them up in my lifetime!!! I should have a big "Scraps" party and maybe we could put a dent in them!!!

This card is very easy to make, which is one of the things I like about it.  You can put a bunch of these cards together pretty fast!  

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  I stamped them on first and then I added the papers.  I wanted the words to line up perfectly under the decorative paper and the only way to make that happen was to stamp them first!  

After stamping I took a strip of decorative paper and set it in place just under the words.  I followed the angle of the words. My paper was a bit longer on each end than the card was.  You want that.  It reassures you that the decorative paper will fit nicely on top of the card front.  Continue to add layers, tilting the papers a bit each time.  Here 4 layers are used.  You can use more if you like.  But I was following Andrea's card and she had used 4 layers.  

I rounded the corners with a 1-1/4" circle punch and added some ribbon and then taped the card front on the folded piece of card stock. Yup, as simple as that!

Now get to work using up those scrap pieces of card stock!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
