Layer Technique For Hand Stamped Cards

I love the layering effect on this handmade sunflower card. This technique is sometimes called the spotlight technique, but I just kind of came about this card a round about way. I love that paper crafting and card making can be whatever you want!

I first stamped the center of the Sunflower Stamp and was just going to use the small piece, but then decided it needed a bit more in the background so I stamped the flower in the background. I did turn the center of the flower so it is actually in the opposite direction of the background flower. I like the way the background flower looks even through it is not lined up perfectly.

Are the sunflowers full grown and out in your area? It is fun seeing them everywhere and my kids are amazed at how tall they grow. I think that is what motivated me to pull out this beautiful background stamp.

You can find the Sunflower stamp and the sentiment if from the Simply Sketched Hostess Set in my Online Store.

Don’t forget about my Ronald McDonald House Charities Fundraiser.
