Stacks of Happy Hues card from Heather

Hello Bloggers,

Gorgeous card from Heather:
Title : ‘Stacks of Happy Hues’ with Heather

'Hello everyone , Heather back with you again after being away on a short break . Have you missed me ? I’ve certainly missed all of you, and creating with these glorious papers .
Today I am showcasing a card with stacked embellishments .. Denise has designed these papers  to blend and flow together perfectly .

1. My base is a deep purple cardstock which I cut into 12” x 6” and folded in half .
2. Cut another piece of cardstock slightly smaller than 6” x 6” , to create my front cover. 
3. I adhered the Christmas paper to the card and stitched around the edge .
4. Beginning with a Tim Holtz Die cut I mounted that onto my base piece. I used various Sizzix dies and began layering them . I included some cardstock to bring out the richness in the papers along with kraft  for contrast .
5. I completed my cluster with a bloom and two leaves .
6. The inside is embellished with a border punched piece on the left side and some washi tape on the right. Finished off with a tiny strip of paper and a tab folded around the edge of the card. Use a stamp if you desire .  

Handy tip 
Sometimes with this technique only tiny sections of the pieces can be seen but this adds to the magical appeal.  In my opinion embellishing the inside really completes a card with style. 
These are such quick and easy cards with lots of dimension and texture.
