Build It Up!




Evening all, I have another card to share because it’s time for a new Papertake Weekly challenge

This week it’s a nice one…


…so, we don’t want to see any flat cards, lots of lovely layers is the way to go!

There’s a fabulous Ribbon Girl voucher for our lucky winner and as always some great inspiration from the girls to get you started





I sat for ages with these new Landscape Art pads from Lili of the valley, I didn’t have any any ideas at all for using them so I put them to one side for a couple of weeks. The next time I picked them up I made about 6 cards and really liked them all. They’re a bit different, not what I would usually use but I think they’ll be really useful for cards when ‘cute’ just won’t do


This one is inverted layers, just cut the images with different sizes of squares and then layer the apertures with foam pads

I did the sentiment on the computer and then tucked it in between the layers


July 21st - Build It Up


A few die cut clouds and some distress stickles and it’s done. Quite a simple card for me but I was pleased with how it turned out
