And today I’m sharing a card using the fun add-on Paper Layering Castle die!
This whole kit just screams fairytales to me so today I wanted to create my dream castle! 😉 I started by die-cutting the Paper Layering Castle from white cardstock and colored it with copic markers. I also added a little crystal clear glitter to some of the lines of the castle with clear lacquer.
Next I blended a background panel with spun sugar, shaded lilac, and tumbled glass distress oxide ink. I added a dark grey cardstock backer behind the castle for the windows and doors and then adhered the castle with foam mounting tape. I stamped the sentiment from the kit onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a fishtail banner and then adhered it with foam mounting tape to finish the card!
And that’s it!
