Dream : stacked die cut

Hello Friends,

Wishing all a very Happy New Year!!! Hope this year brings health and happiness to all.

My first post this year is about dreams. Its a simple layered card with instructions. I hope this card will encourage you to play with colours, words, designs.

To start i chose the colours of the rainbow as it represents all colours of life and inspires and brings a smile to everyone's face.

So took 4x 5 inch pieces of cardstock in 7 colours of the rainbow.

Next i die cut the word Dream in the center of the pieces. Reapeat this with all the papers. To make sure that all the pieces are cut out from the same space on each of the pieces; Use 2-3 cards at one time so that even though i will not cut through completely but will leave and impression which will make it easier to place the die in the correct spot.

Once all the pieces are cut through keep the word cutouts aside and using the negative piece cut it such that it forms a silhouette of the word,

Start stacking and adhering these pieces such that each layer is a little offset from the last so that all the colours become visible.

Also stacked up all the word dies cuts and added diamond dust on the top layer.

Finally assembled the card such that the Dream word falls in the center. Also further decorated the top with some script stamp, rub ons and handmade paper flowers.
