Triple Layer - no stamping

This is the second Triple Layer card I've made this week.  Di, of Pixie's Crafty Workshop, left me a comment on the Triple Layer Stamped card I posted yesterday, to say that she had made a post using this technique, but with patterned paper.  A few minutes on Google resulted in me finding the instructions on Di's post HERE.  I decided to make a square card this time using this ' new to me' technique.

The white base card is 7" square.  The patterned paper is from an old 8 x 8 paper stack I bought for £1 at a craft fair.  The yellow circle is die cut with a MB 'Stitched  Circle' die and the pink die cut is a NBUS - MB 'Amana Circle'.  I bought the Amana Circle die a couple of years ago in a 60% off sale and it seemed too good a bargain not to pop in my basket.  I had no idea what I was going to do with it, which is why it's been sat in my box of dies, unused, until now.  It always seemed the wrong size for the project I was working on.  As Darnell has her NBUS #8 Challenge still open, I'll be popping over to her blog to link up my third card this week.  If you haven't joined in the challenge yet, Challenge #8 ends soon, but there are two new NBUS Challenges coming.  The first one starts tomorrow, so visit Darnell's blog to find out all about it.

I am joining in the following challenges:

Hi Liz this is lovely. The current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is for this technique but has not proved very popular. Must have been too much of a challenge!

Liz said...

Hi Sue. I saw the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge was a Triple Layer card, but I couldn't find suitable masculine papers or stamps which I thought would work. :-( The technique is easier than it looks. xx

A fantastic card Liz, looking at this card I can see lots of cards being made like this using up off cuts of patterned papers.

That's such a pretty card Liz and a great way to use patterned paper. I've been trying to figure out ways of how to use some of that old stash so huge thanks for the idea x
