Layers, I've Got Layers!

I love the art on decorative napkins.  I've had several requests to teach this method and I have done so in the past.  When Chris made the request with this beautiful napkin in hand, what could I say.  Ok, I'll show you how.  As of this moment, I've not kept my word.  Honest Chris, I will show you how and soon.  Another friend, Brenda, sent a link to a video of adding glitter to graphics.  After watching the video, I thought....hmmmm I know I could do it easier and quicker.  I did and I shall share in one word...Xyron!  The gold glittery piece behind the graphic was a find at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique.  Yesterday, I made a quick trip down the hill to buy one thing.  I came home with a bag full of newly added yummy finds.  I must say, I was mesmerized by the bling!  I now have it in silver and gold and there were lots of other colors too. 

Ok, a challenge this month on Christmas Stampin' All Year Long is to use layers.  That challenge was my inspiration for this card.  I love layers and if you looked at my card from yesterday's post, I am also trying to create pretty cards that won't break the budget when posting them.  Today's card will thrill the postal workers as it's not going to be mailed using one 1st Class Stamp!  Six layers on the outside and more on the inside....
Thank you Chris, and Brenda for motivating me.  And thanks to Christmas Stampin' All Year Long for giving me that extra little push! 

Happy Crafting, Hugs from a very sunny Northern California!

  3. Oh Mary, forgive me but I really could help relating this post to a song from Grease,
    I've got layer's they're multiplying and I'm losing control.

  8. Great idea to use the Xyron.
    I use the Sook Wang sheets but I can see that Xyron would work great too.

  10. I'm so glad we gave you that push to make a Christmas card. : ) Are you telling me that that image is from a napkin? That's awesome!! This card is beautiful and I love that sparkly gold paper. Though the silver would be more my style . . . Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
