Top Tip Tuesday Luscious Layers

Hello and welcome here!  The challenge at Top Tip Tuesday this week is right up my alley, luscious layers.  I love layers, it adds that little 'extra' to a card. The DT are sharing their Tips this week too, so be sure to head on over and check them out.

Challenge - Luscious Layers
DT Tips

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I love how this card turned out, and I managed to get 8 layers on this card...1. the white base, 2. the green patterned paper, 3. the dark green mat, 4. the ribbon, 5. the white square mat, 6. the light green frame, 7. the flourish, 8. the flower. At first I wasn't sure about the square mat and oval frame, but after I slept on it...not literally, lol...I saw it with fresh eyes and really liked the combination.  If you click on the image, you'll see that I embossed the square mat...for instructions on how I did this just scroll down:)

 For a chance at the following prizes, be sure to link your creation to the Luscious Layers Challenge  at Top Tip Tuesday, you can enter up to 3 times!! For a chance at an extra prize leave a tip on your blog and be sure to leave 'tip' after your name in Mr. Linky.
Don't forget the challenge runs for 2 weeks and closes at 1pm.

 Bugaboo Stamps - 7 Digi images of your choice

Top Tipper Prize:
Fred She Said - $20 Gift Voucher


It's difficult to see, but I added a white border to the top and bottom inside of the card.

To emboss a Spellbinder shape using an embossing folder, this is the 'sandwich' I use. (You cut your shape out using the Spellbinder before this step)
It's important to remember to keep the folder open...you are using the embossing mat to emboss the pattern.
