Over the years Liz has discovered, learned and created many different ways to make greeting cards, but the technique she returns to time after time is using layers.
Layering colours and shapes, and just using a combination of patterned and plain paper can create a beautiful and unusual card made in a matter of minutes. Circular or patterned edges on layered parts of a card add extra interest, and with the help of a die cutting machine such as a Big Shot make it easy. Sometimes the way the shapes themselves are layered is attractive, the offset layering of circles doesn’t really need anything else, the layers are decorative enough.
This class covers five ways of layering to create cards that are eye catching but quite straightforward to create. As it is the start of the season for all crafters, She has sneaked a couple of Christmas cards in too.
