Crafty Cardmakers challenge #261 – Lots of Layers

261 layers wmWelcome back from our Summer Break, we hope you have had a lovely Summer.

Jo is hosting today’s challenge, Lots of Layers.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

My card was made using my scan n cut machine, and some svg files that I bought from Dreaming Tree.  It came in a bundle with two other designs.  If you want to get the files, you can find them here: Le chapeau bundle

You can do an awful lot with the scan n cut machine – it is really versatile – and I don’t use it half as much as I should.  You will notice in the card that there are a lot of small pieces – and the joy of the scan n cut is that you can put your card scraps onto the mat, scan it, and then position the image you want to cut out exactly in the right place.  So no card scraps need ever be wasted…

I should add here though, that the Happy birthday sentiment and it’s mat were actually cut using a die.  You can cut sentiments like this with the machine, but they cut flat, and I like the bevel the die gives you.

Good luck with the challenge!
