Both of these feature lots of layers. I split some of the tag to tuck under the top and bottom of the layers or from the sides, giving the illusion of a full layer underneath.
For my first card, I colorblocked the background with patterned papers and then added layers with the die cuts, cut-outs and stickers. Super easy to do!
FYI: Because I don't like any machine stitching to show on the inside of my cards, I do all my sewing prior to attaching different elemetns to my card base.
For my second card, I cut apart one of the journaling cards (I love this quote, btw!) and used it as the "base" to layer my die cut flower and leaves and greeting on. I tucked some labels (cut in half) under the top and bottom of the piece for additional color and detail.
I added texture to the die cut flower by crumpling each flower die cut before smoothing out and attaching to my card.

What I love most about events like this is how I come away inspired by the new techniques and ideas from each instructor! Things I may not gravitate towards normally but things that knock my socks off and give me inspiration and new ways to doing and creating.
This is going to be an amazing event.
