VIDEO TUTORIAL: Foliage Masking Beauty

Check out this beauty with a “faux layer” adding depth and dimension to a simple card. This card was inspired by my friend Lynsay Mahon. Recently, Lynsay and I were challenged to design a “2 layer” swap card for Stampin’ Up! Founders Circle. It sounds easy enough to do, but sometimes we think in “layers” (like an onion)  and designing a “simple” card was quite the challenge lol. As you can see, simple can be gorgeous! A few more tips included in this video are: shimmer mist spritz (for sparkle and shine) and using the brayer to make a matching envelope.

Here is the video tutorial for my 2 layer swap card, using the Gently Falling stamp set:
