Grandma's Rocking Chair - June 23 Talking about Layers

Today's Question for Grandma's Rocking Chair: How many layers should you use on a card?

That is personal preference.  No layer simple cards are great and sometimes I find them harder to make than layered cards.  Here is a nice no layer card

You can also have a lot of layers on a card depends upon what you are layering and how big they are. This card has 5 layers on the flower.

If you use full card front layers and just cut them down a little you have to be careful of the weight if you are mailing them as they sometimes will get over an ounce.  You don't want your card sent back for more postage.  

I usually like using two layers.

Though I find myself doing a lot of single layer cards also.

But sometimes I really go over board.
How many layers are on this card?
 Layers don't have to be like mats, you can also layer your greetings.

They also don't even have to be the same type or size layers.

Just go ahead and try some layering.  If you are shy try using some Designer Series Paper as a first layer and just put a greeting and embellishments on it.  Oh but then you have to decide which side to have up.

If you have a stamping or  paper crafting question please leave a comment or e-mail me at nuhddad @ (remove the spaces around the @)
