Punch Out & Stack 'em

When we friends do "Card Over" we exchange gifties.  My friend Kris Lancaster gave me a package that contained sheets of punch out flower designs in dimension form, and sheets of silky pattern papers in 8-1/2x11 size.  Waste not, I say, so after I punched out the most beautful flowers, I cut down the papers for card mounting.  Here is the result.  Some of the designs have a metalic bordering, and with the papers being silky, I caught a shine on my photo shoot.  Nonetheless, I hope you can see what delicate cards this package allowed me to create.  I made 18 cards total from the package and these will be given to my dear friend Adi.  She is a high school friend, and so cherished. I stamped off some sentiments on separate mounts and I will include a roll of double-sided tape so that she can include a sentiment inside if she desires. 

 This card I featured so that the 4 layers can be seen.  Two of the cards have 5 diminishing design layers.  I used the thin very small square pop dots that I use with Card Candy because of the multiple layering.  No doubt the mailings will cost more because of the "bulk" but I don't think Adi will mind.
Happy Tuesday, my sweet visitors.
