Make It Monday #37: Layered Mats and Frames

Love this technique and it was just what I needed to get into the spirit.




I die cut Layers Mat Stack 1 once it white and once in Smiply Chartreuse, then I used the circle die and cut the centre of the Simply Chartreuse.  The lace mat was created by die cutting in Pure Poppy with the lace scallop then the centre was die cut with the circle die in the centre.  Tag Its #8 was stamped next on the white mat in the centre.  I adhered the white mat then adhered the Simply Chartreuse mat with foam dots and finally the face scallop.

All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse, White  
Patterened Cardstock:  Text-Style Candy Cane Prints
Clear Stamps: Tag Its #8, Think Big Favourites #8
Ink: Simply Chartreuse, Black (Memento)
Dies: Layerz Mat Stack 1, Limitless Layers
Other:  orange Copic, foam dots

Cute card. You did a great job with the MIM challenge. The colors really puts one in a holiday spirit. I like how you used the Tags It set. I still haven't inked this one up yet. You've inspired me to get moving.

Love this card. I never would have thought that you could stamp on that candy cane paper, but it looks really good. I like all the mat layers you used to highlight that adorable snowman.
