In the spotlight

My post for today is a card using a technique I hadn't used before. Once I had looked into how it was done it was really easy, definitly something I will do again. My card is a sample for MTTC blog.
I started with a piece of A4 card which I folded to make and A5, I used one of my dies to create the shape. I also used the die to create my first layer out of a pretty backing paper I had in my stash. I then used a smaller die from the same set, cut and embossed. I used one of my spectrum noir pens to colour the edge, and stamped out my image to make up my second layer. I then stamped my image again and using a small circle die I cut a section and coloured it. To finish my card I placed the circle cut out into place and added peel offs for decoration.

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments are appreciated x
