Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #18 .....

Good morning everyone and welcome to Challenge #18....Layer It!  I love me some layers!  One good way to use up some of your hoard is to use lots all at once.  So show us some layers!  We need to see at least THREE layers on your project.  (Ink, paint, embossing and mixed media products do count as layers.  Drag out that hoarded paper and those embossing folders that are way in the back of the drawer.  Use those stamps, dies and punches!  Show us the layers!

My card today is a Joy Fold card and I think I really love this quick and easy card.  Once you get the pieces cut and glued together, then all you have to do is layer and play, layer and play!  Did you notice no flowers today?  I used an old earring on the front to tuck the fold under and  it sort of serves as my flower.  I just wanted the other elements to come into play and I didn't think the card needed anything more to get in the way.

My card unfolded:

I used some pretty design paper and I embossed the Add a Little Dazzle metal sheet and then I cut out one of the poinsettia flowers and put on the ribbon.  The deer also has a metal nose! I also glittered his antlers.    I made a side pocket for one of the folds and created a cute tag for a sentiment.  Did I say I love me some layers?  I didn't count but I know there are more than three layers on my project and I used quite a bit of my hoard so I have accomplished what I set out to do!

One talented participant will receive this prize donated by Lindy's Stamp Ganga $30 Gift Certificate to the Lindy's Stamp Gang store!

Now get busy and show us your layers.  I can't wait to see what you create!  You have until Midnight PT on November 2 to enter.  Good luck to you all!

Just a quick reminder that our Sponsors for the month of October are:  Polly's Paper StudioLind's Stamp Gang and Add a Little Dazzle metal!

A license to layer...that sounds like fun! I've never seen such pretty sheet metal, and what a perfect match to your papers. A great use for the earring, too! A lovely Christmas card, Glenda!
