Clean and Simple Cardmaking Day 3

On Day 3 of class, Jennifer showed us a fun way to do tone-on-tone cards with die cuts. She layered several sheets of cardstock die cuts together to create dimension. Then I saw another card that a classmate, Tomoe Inoue, created with colored cardstock layered under white. I love the look of white-on-white layering, but frankly it scares me. But I thought this might make the technique a little more accessible.

You can see the dimension and a hint of the color from the front. But check it out from the side!

This is such a fun technique! A lot of work (especially with this intricate doily die cut!), but it's a great result!

Oh yeah, and this card was also inspired by a Papertrey Ink release project by Jessica Witty. :)
