As you may have noticed, most of my cards are clean and simple. But, every now and then, I like to push my boundries and try something different. This card is just that, its busy, and bright!
I love the layered effect on this card (its one I’ve made a few times for older relatives and a like), but I dont usually make it in orange!
The In Colours 2014-2016 include Tangelo Twist – a knock your eyes out, bright, Orange! It is gorgeous!
Here I’ve paired it with Daffodil Delight (another lovely colour), and the Blooming with Kindness Stamps, creating a bright and cheery, Warmest Wishes on your Birthday, card.
The trick with this card is in the measurements!
The card base is half an A4 piece of Tangelo Twist Card stock, and then there are 5 cardstock layers on top, alternating between Whisper White and Tangelo Twist.
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 3 3/4″ (14 x 9.5cm)
Layer 2 – Tangelo Twist – 5 x 3 1/8″ (8 x 12.5cm)
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 4 5/8 x 2 3/4″ (11.5 x 7cm)
Layer 4 – Tangelo Twist – 4 / 2 1/4″ (10 x 6cm)
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 2″ (9 x 5cm)
Once all your layers are cut, stack the Whisper White pieces on top of each other (each one in the centre of the one underneath), and stamp across all three layers. You could use some temporary adhesive to stop the layers from moving, although I just hold them steady with one hand and stamp with the other. This stamping will leave a white boarder around each layer, but thats OK, thats where the Tangelo Twist layers come into their own! Once the ink is dry, stack the Whisper White pieces with the Tangelo Twist pieces, starting with the largest piece at the bottom and ending with the smallest piece on top.
I have stuck my layers together with SNail adhesive, but for a more dimensional look you could pop your layers up with dimensionals for a truely eye-popping card!
