Hi there crafty friends, it's Jenny here! Today, I have a video that features my card making process for when I use layering dies.
I used to be daunted by layering dies. If I'm honest, I was a little bit scared of them. At first glance, they can be super complex looking, and I worried I wouldn't know what color layers to choose or how to get the pieces to fit.
After many handmade cards (and Altenew Craft-A-Flowers), I think I have a process that suits me, and I use it every time for creating with layering dies. It's pretty basic, but if I follow it, I know I can't go wrong.
Use a Mix of Glitter and Gradient Cardstocks
I like to replace one of the layers with a glitter layer to add a little glitz without being too overpowering. The Grand Anemone is pretty basic for layering dies – a good starter flower!
Add Extras to Round Out Your Arrangement
I also like to add bulk and build out the florals by adding branches and leaves here and there – the Branches and Berries Die Set comes in very handy for this.
Contrast Florals with Geometric Patterns
I have created a step-by-step tutorial showing you the full process! Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by!
