Make It Monday #62

I love this week's Make It Monday, a Step It Up challenge with layering! One of my favorite looks on cards, lots of layers are the best. However, I also love the single layer simple look that is deceptively challenging to achieve well. So taking the same color scheme and general layout as well as the same stamp set(s) for making three cards of varying levels of "layeredness" was very fun! The sizes of the cards are also slightly different so to add to the variation a bit.

Card #1, single layer


Card #2, added a layer with the popped up butterflies


Card #3, added lots with diecutting, stitching, additional stamping & more popped up butterflies


That's it for today, what a cool challenge! I hope there will be more of this nature...
