Just Us Girls Challenge #505

The gals at JUGS have named me Chic of the Week for last week's lunch box entries.  Thanks so much ladies! 

A new challenge prompt is up and it's a good one.  Stacking die cuts.  

There are many ways to do this.  One method that I use quite often is to adhere 3-4 sentiment die cuts together so that they're the thickness of chipboard.  It really helps the sentiment stand out on a page.  Because I wanted to challenge myself to do something different I decided to stack a background die. 

My original plan was to offset the two die cut panels to create a shadow-like layer.  It looked nice but then the thought struck me to flip the top layer 180 degrees which created this beautiful effect.  (Very Jennifer McGuire looking, don't you think?) 

I stamped a piece of leftover watercolor paper with a background stamp and added in a single layer of the die cut word Hugs.  This card falls into the category of "hope I never need but am prepared if/when I do." 

Lil Inkers - Diagonal Plaid Die
Simon Says Stamp - Quilted Heart Stamp, Pained Hugs Die
Memory Box - Heart Die
Hero Arts - Hero Hues Cardstock (divine stuff!)

Thank you for a bit of your time and I do hope you play along!  Hope to see ya on the crafty side.....
