Today it is Jane the Flower Girl’s turn with a clever take on Jen’s layers challenge
Jane has layered the punched tree and the snow is made from layers of card.
For the tree Jane has used the green from the Textura Pastel Pad the card all has a coloured core that adds some definition. You can sand the top off with the Woodware Distressing Nail file, or a sanding block. The punch is the Lilium Feathers Jane has used the larger punch, but it is available in two sizes.
Jane has added step out photographs to her blog, so that you can see how to shape the petals and how many to use.
I hope that Jen is enjoying our various layers this week. Thank you for visiting today, now you can pop over to the Flower Girl,

This A6 card has lots of layers….in the tree and in the snow.
Its a design I have used for many a year and is always popular and easy to make.
Choose your card, textured preferably, and punch four tree shapes from the Leone Em punch FPC6-01. The photo left shows how to cut up the shapes. You need to remove the two tabs on the first shape, then each time cutting off one, two or three ‘petals’ to create the set of six pieces needed for the tree.
Next, sand the card with the Woodware file if your card has a white or paler core, it gives a little bit of a ‘distress’ effect. If your textured card does not have a white core, then use a darker green ink pad and colour the tips if the points. This will give a bit of definition.
Place each shape on the moulding mat and use the character shaper tool to curl the points. It’s important to hold the tool as in the photo and slide the tool from the tips of the points to the start of the solid area on each shape.
Assembly is easy, just apply a bit of PVA glue to the top of the biggest shape and stick the next one on top. Repeat with the other shapes until you have built your tree.
I’ve added some Stampendous shaved ice and diamond glitter glue to the finished card. The greeting comes from JGCL551 Christmas verses.
