Happy Anniversary

my cards 001

The base for this card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  All the rest of the card stock is from the Glimmer line.  The back purple layer and the flowers are Alpine Aster Glimmer.  The top layer is Beargrass Glimmer.  The leaves came from Spring Larch and the butterflies came from Starburst Lichen.

I saw a really interesting technique on Papertrey Ink.  It is called Camouflaging Die Cuts.  I used distress inks on the Beargrass Glimmer cardstock to put down the color.  I then cut the happy rectangle out with a die also from Papertrey Ink.  I then cut four more of the rectangle out of plain white paper and glued them all together with the colored one being on top.  I then placed the rectangle back into the space on the original colored piece, which now makes that whole cut out piece raised.  I hope this makes sense.  If not you can go and watch the video.  I love the raised look.
