lovely layers

Happy 2020 crafty friends! Welcome to a new decade... or not... depending on your point of view. ;) Wishing you all the best for the upcoming year... hope you had an enjoyable holiday season.

Exciting times at Seize the Birthday with a new look for the new year!  I just love how fun and colourful it is... a big shout out to team mate Ashwini who created it.  Thank you so much!

Our topping this week is layers.  I don't do a lot of layers most of the time so it was fun to get creative with layer implementation. I cut out and popped up the flowers and leaf. This was also about using up scraps.  I've been hoarding this patterned paper and striped vellum forever! I'm also trying my phone camera for the first time for my card picture (as opposed to my DSLR).  What do you think?

I'd like to welcome the super talented Joyce Mehrber as our Surprise Party Guest for the next couple of months.  Welcome Joyce! Be sure to check out the blog for all of lovely layered cards from the Design Team!

  1. Love the cute flowers on your layered card Glenda. Great card. Happy New Year.

  2. Oh hooray, one other person who thinks this is NOT a new decade. :D Excellent job on the layers! I was thinking of you as I struggled with my own card. ;) And the photography looks good!

  3. There is nothing better than to make a card using up things that have been around. such as your scraps. This card is totally incredible!

  4. Fantastic! Love the pattern paper and the flowers - glad you finally used the pp and the washi tape! I think the shot has come out really well, too - its clear and the colors really pop out.

  5. Perfect font with the fun flowers

  6. These bits and pieces go together so well Glenda, fun layered card. The photo looks great too, Cathy x

  7. This card is really adorable! I love that it is whimsical and CAS at the same time. I really like it a lot! Happy New Year to you and Karl! Hope it's a great one!

  8. I struggle with laying pp, but you did an amazing job with the background and your lovely flowers! Hope 2020 is a great one for you!

  9. This is so cute and cheerful, Glenda! I love that the flowers are peeking over the edge of the small white panel! The picture looks crisp and sharp! Happy New Year!
