Tips- Layering Identical Cuts

This tip is a really easy way to add a little bit extra dimension to any card creation! You'll need a decent pair of scissors though. Stamp your focal image once on your cardstock. Stamp the image again on another piece of the same kind of cardstock. Cut that one out and place over top of the original image with pop dots. It gives a neat, subtle shadow effect. This effect in more complex layouts is often called paper tole. It can be as simple or as complex as you wish, so it's a really great technique for all types of cards and skill levels! *photo removed for publication* Supplies: Stamps: Sweet to the Core (gel-a-tins) Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, Cottage Ivy Paper: Chocolate Chip, Spring Moss, Old Olive, White Accessories, etc.: Regular and Long Rectangle Nestabilities, Double Stitched Ribbon
