Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the "Layering a Window Card" Technique as shown on page 33 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit Technically Terrific where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Tracey's Blog, you are on the right track! 

Although there are a whole lot of fabulous window cards to cut out and use on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, I chose to go about it in a different way...I used a layer instead.

 I really like the dragonfly postage stamp!  I cut him out at 3", then layered some foliage behind him.  I popped the whole thing up on top of the Victory paper and chocolate striped ribbon.  A few circular Durables, and some Distress Stickles on his wings, and the card is complete!  I think it will make a nice birthday card for one of my nephews.

Here is a closer view of the dragonfly.
