Cards in Envy Extra Layers

Our challenge for the next two weeks on the Cards in Envy blog is to "Put some extra layers on."  You can have layers on your card or images depicting lots of layers (sweaters, scarfs, coats etc).  I chose to layer my card.  All counted there are 7 layers on this card but it still fits in a standard A2 envelope (a requirement for our challenge).

Crafty Colonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy Challenge Blog, CTMH Pear & Partridge, Christmas Card

I had a scrap of this Close to My Heart Pear and Partridge paper left.  I double stamped the sentiment in brown and covering up the merry little Christmas part and then again in red over the brown.  I added a few little stickles over the card for some shine.  
Come join us on the Cards in Envy blog and see what the marvelous Design Team has cooked up.  Then add your card to the challenge!

Happy Crafting!


  1. What a great card with all those 7 layers. It looks dimension with not being bulky at all. Love It. Have a good day.

  2. Seven layers ... like seven-layer dip. I might be distracted.

    I'm going to ponder this challenge. I've gotten so far away from layers lately, it would be a REAL challenge. But that's the point, right? :)

  3. Donna, This is so pretty. Love these rich colors!

  4. Adding 7 layers and still achieving a non lumpy design, that sounds like quite an achievement. I like how you you stamped the sentiment in 2 colors, I've never tried that. A simple and great looking effect.

  5. Simply gorgeous, Donna! I love the crewel embroidery look of your DP:! Great job, teamie!

  6. Hi Donna
    Love, love ,love this. The background paper is wonderful.
    May have to do something similar for my posting cards.
    Best wishes.
