More Layers? (Yes, Please!)

We're still celebrating "All Bundled Up" cards at Jingle Belles; by which we mean cards that have three or more layers. We both happen to love layers (especially Lauren!) but for all you minimalists out there, remember that you only need to add a few skinny mats to achieve instant layeryness in a way that embraces a CAS aesthetic!

Lauren says, "The tag at the center of this week's card is a combination of layered leftover elements (a pretty thumbnail image from a Ciao Bella paper pack, half an embossed label shape, part of a punched border, a vellum poinsettia that I drew, cut out and then didn't use, etc); then I layered all of that onto a card base which has two more layers: some Echo Park plaid paper into which I punched EK Success snowflakes, and a larger piece of Ciao Bella bokeh paper. I finished off with Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Bling and silver Star Sequins; not to mentions a little machine stitching."

Stephanie says, "My layers come from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini Christmas Paper Stash Pad.  The strips were cut from one of the plaid designs and there's an extra layer of black cardstock to frame the sentiment from Stampers Anonymous Bold Things Number Three.  I used the layout from the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown swapping the smaller square for some vintage candy cane ephemera.

Scroll down to the original post to link your card in the "All Bundled Up" gallery.
