This week’s Make It Monday challenge is Step It Up Layering. I made three cards. With each card, more layers and detail were added.

Step One-The card was die cut with Spellbinder’s Postage Stamp and stamped with Papertrey’s 2012 Birthday tags.

Step Two-I die cut a border in a patterned paper, stamped the card background with Papertrey’s Tin Type background stamps. The same Birthday Tags set was used but this time die cut on white card stock and bordered with patterned paper using Papertrey’s Limitless Layers Circle dies.

Step Three-On the most elaborate version, I again die cut a border for the card, added three layers for the Birthday Tag. I then embellished it with pearls. Next I added a bow and paper flower with a pearl center.

What fun!
