For the 8th card... some layering

Today's card has been made by Karen...

For this card you will need two pieces of patterned paper and three co-ordinating sheets of Bazzill cardstock. I used Merry Berry, and Silly Chilly from the Jolly by Golly range by Cosmo Cricket, a dark brown ink pad and some flat backed gems. I also used a Bazzill In Stitch'z circle template and a woodware 1" circle punch.

Cut the red cardstock to make a 6" card base, a 5.5" square mat from cream cardstock and a 5" square mat from the green cardstock. Cut or punch a total of thirteen 1" circles and eight 1.5" squares. Ink the edges of all the cut pieces.

Assemble all the pieces, as shown, not forgetting to slip 5 circles under the right hand edge of the green cardstock before sticking down, to give you a scalloped edge.

Next use the template to mark out 2 circles, one in the emplty square, and one through all the squares.

Add a circle of flat backed gems as shown, and one on each corner of the cream layer. Then stick the punched circles of patterned paper on top of the squares, using foam pads.

The final touch is a computer printed 'Happy Christmas' layered with foam pads on a punched circle of red cardstock.
