Botanical Layers

I've had the Botanical Layers Stamp Set and Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper in my stash for and haven't used them.  I created this card using Evening Evergreen and Parakeet Party on a Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

Here's the sketch I used.

I used the Basic Border dies to create the top layers.  These dies are absolutely amazing if you haven't checked them out!


  1. Cut Evening Evergreen cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Parakeet Party cardstock 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 3 1/4" x 3 1/2" and adhere to the bottom of the Parakeet Party cardstock
  4. Adhere to card base.
  5. Cut Evening Evergreen cardstock 3" x 3 1/2" and cut border on bottom using die
  6. Cut Parakeet Party cardstock 3 1/4" x 3 1/2" and cut border on bottom using die.  
  7. Stamp splatter on Evening Evergreen cardstock using Evening Evergreen ink.
  8. Adhere Evening Evergreen cardstock piece to Parakeet Party piece.
  9. Adhere to the cardbase.
  10. Cut out stitched circle from Parakeet Party cardstock
  11. Cut out smaller stitched circle from Basic White cardstock
  12. Stamp sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White cardstock
  13. Stamp splatters using Parakeet Party ink (stamped off)
  14. Adhere stamped circle to Parakeet Party circle using Dimensionals.
  15. Adhere to card base.
  16. Adhere embellishments
  17. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  18. Stamp splatter in bottom right corner using Evening Evergreen ink
  19. Adhere to the inside of the card
