Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Tropical Layers Dies

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project I chose to use the Tropical Layers Dies from the new January-June Mini Catalogue.

I really enjoy using leaf punches and dies, so this new set of dies is perfect.

The design takes inspiration from page 76 of the Mini Catalogue.

Rather than using many greens, I chose to use Fresh Freesia, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Very Vanilla for my colour combination.

Each of the large leaves are layered to create some depth.

The sentiment, from the coordinating Artfully Layered Stamp Set is then added. It is stuck onto another shape from the Tropical Layers Dies.

A length of In Color ribbon sits behind.

Next, the smaller leaves are dotted into the gaps at the side. I found using the putty end of my Take Your Pick Tool was perfect for picking these fiddly little pieces up to position them in place onto a little dot of Multipurpose Glue.

Finally, some of the new Polished Dots are added.
