Rose Blossom Blog Hop - Hello Lovely Layered Card

Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop! Come follow Close To My Heart consultants from the Rose Blossom team as we share our creations made using the new Hello Lovely collection! 
If you came here from Kim's amazing blog, you are on the right path. If you get lost along the way, come back here and go to the bottom of the page for the blog hop list.

Ideas for adding layers to your cards:

Cut Apart Cards: All of our paper packs have 2 sheets of cut apart cards. They have beautiful designs and sentiments and come in 3x4 and 4x6 sizes - perfect for layering on cards! The gray and white circle background and the "Best Day" banner both come from the Hello Lovely cut apart card sheet.

Die Cuts: I love adding layers with fun die cut shapes. I used the Hearts Thin Cuts, which work especially well because they have both solid shapes and outlines, so you can layer even more! Plus the outlines allow you to highlight words, such as the "Best".

Vellum: Want to add more layers without adding too many patterns? Use vellum! The translucent paper gives dimension without taking away from the pretty paper. I used the striped and gold dot vellum from Uptown Fundamentals.

Embellishments: My favorite way to add layers - embellishments! I added a few stickers from the Hello Lovely Complements, and tied it all together by sewing around the card and the banner.

Morgan, your card is stunning! I know the beautiful paper is "lovely" in itself, but your layering just puts it over the top beautiful! I love the thin cuts heart and all of the other elements you put together.
