PTI ~ Love of Layers

This card is for the current MIM over HERE where Laurie Schmidlin adds lots of wonderful layers to her card.  I  love when other people make a card with layers, I usually don't love mine, but this time I really like this.  I added extra depth to the card by running my versamark around the edges and white embossing it, I had also sponged some white ink around the edges.  I stamped and embossed white snowflakes and added die cut snowflakes from both white cs and vellum.  I had to add a couple of branches from the Beautiful Berries: Winter.  the final touch was some nuvo white drops to mimick snowflakes.  Here is Laurie's card:

Heart Hugs, friends!

  11. I feel the same way when I make a card with layers. Everyone else's look so much better than mine! But you don't have anything to worry about. You've got some great layers going on here. Love the mix of pine sprigs, berries, and snowflakes!

  14. Your card while wintery in theme gives a warm feeling~ I hope the Portland area doesn't experience last year's snow extravaganza as we will be there for Christmas.
