Layered Spring Orange Colored Cards

 Hello friends! This month's kit from Taylor Made Cards 4 U is Shades of Orange and I am sharing bright cards created with the kit!

Today we will look at the garden themed cards, and cover the last two cards in a week or so!

There is such a great variety of images in this set!  I was drawn to the floral images. 

Let's start with the slimline card.  I started with one of the paper printouts in the kit, trimmed to use on a slimline card. One of Sizzix's Tim Holtz corner dies provided the texture in the upper left corner. I love the watering can image and used that as a focus.  

I sliced the top of the watering can so I could insert the flowers. Another Sizzix Tim Holz die cut the variety of flowers from watercolor paper that had inks smooshing.

 The kraft paper hello is layered three times for dimension and glued on the watering can!

The second card is full of dimension and layers! The base is one of the smaller background papers included in the set, topped with a tag from the set. I layered the tag on kraft and black paper for interest and popped it up with fun foam.

Check out all the fun ephemera pieces! The boots and watering can are from the Shades of Orange kit, while the additional flowers and butterfly are from a Tim Holtz Ideology set.

I just love the texture created by using layers!


I have a video here documenting the process, That is part of a larger YouTube hop:
