SF-2022 June Blog Hop - Lots of Layers!

Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we play with Lots of Layers!
 ~*~*~*~*~  

This month is all about projects are about layers - not one, not two - probably not even three - but MORE.  I'm a clean and simple stamper - so lots of layers is not my norm - but it was sure fun doing these projects!  I've been playin this week with a new favorite set -


#159110 Amazing Year $22.00*

So I decided to use it for my projects today - First my card -
I just love how this turned out - I started with a base of Basic White, a layer of Sweet Sorbet, a layer of Basic Black, a layer of Parakeet Party embossed with the Pretty Flowers EF - that's just for the base.  Then I layered a scallop circle of Sweet Sorbet, a circle of Basic White and then stamped the flower bouquet from the set, colored with blends and fussy cut - this is all popped up on dimensionals.  Here's the inside of the card - just love that sentiment - 
So for my 3D project - I wanted it to match and landed on using the cute new Mini Pocket Envelope die set to make an adorable gift card holder.  I mimicked the look of the card but reduced layers a little due to the size of the pocket - it's perfect for a pair of earrings, a necklace, or in my case a gift card.
How cute is that - I love that it is a perfect fit for a gift card - one of my favorite things to give, especially as most of my family is far away and I send things by mail.
