The third OWH Labor Day Virtual Card Making Party challenge puts a twist on a popular stamping technique.  Instead of stamping on multiple layers, separating them to mat them, and then reassembling them, this time we’re to cut the layers from one piece of either designer paper or cardstock that’s been stamped with a design.

I decided to use a piece of designer paper for my card. I originally cut the smallest oval from the designer paper, too, but I felt the card looked really “busy” so I replaced it with an oval cut from the same color cardstock as the card base.  I added the flowers because the card needed a little something extra to dress it up.

I do appreciate this technique’s use of less cardstock or designer paper, but making sure my graduated dies were aligned correctly was extremely painstaking for me because I’m a perfectionist.  Assembling the layers so they’d line back up correctly also took a lot of patience.  But eventually I ended up with another card for my OWH stash.

Thanks for stopping by today!
