LAYERS OF GOODNESS
Be warned – this post is photo heavy!! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the AMAZING new dies from Memory Box! I just *had* to get some, and have created 2 cards to share with you. Both cards use 2 of the new dies, and are perfect for winter & holiday card making.
Okay – so the front looks pretty unassuming, right? Well, first let me point out the pretty paper! It’s from the American Crafts ‘Holiday’ 6″ x 6″ paper pack. The sentiment is from Penny Black’s Peaceful Season stamp set. Now, let’s move on to the main feature – the inside of the card!
It’s a TUNNEL CARD! Not to brag or anything, but I’m so happy with how the colouring turned out!
First of all, I sorta ‘cheated’ and used the new Photoplay Tunnel Card pack. This pack gives you all the pieces you need to make a tunnel card! No math, no extra cutting or scoring – it’s all done for you (except of course for whatever dies you want to use). The background die is the Memory Box Tall Fir Collage, and the front one is the Lamplight Tree Collage die. Use the Big Shot with the dies & the pieces of cardstock in your Tunnel Card pack. Next, flatten the die cuts and blend on the colours using a blending tool. For the trees, I used Distress inks in Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn. I also used Distress Oxide in Pine Needles. The blue background is done on the back of the card base, in Broken China Distress Oxide. Colour the lamp post with alcohol markers in gray, yellow and orange. Add some small snowflakes with a white gel pen.
Next, follow the directions included with the Tunnel Card pack, and assemble your card. Here’s a close up, below, so you can see the layers.
LAYERS WITHOUT THE TUNNEL
I wanted to show you how you can also layer the die cuts, without the ‘extra fuss’ of creating a tunnel card. You still get lots of dimension, and a ‘wow’ card.
I kept this card more simple by die cutting both layers from Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust cardstock. Layer the 2 die cuts together, separating them with foam tape. This gives you extra dimension. Next, layer them on top of a piece of Tonic Glitter cardstock in Cobalt Blue. Isn’t that gorgeous?! Talk about a sparkly winter wonderland! You could quickly do this if you need to make a lot of cards. Or, do the die cuts from white cardstock and colour them, like I did with the first card. Tunnel optional! Here’s a look, below, so you can see the dimension.
You could add a sentiment across the bottom of the card, or leave the sparkly beauty as is. Of course, you’ll be adding a sentiment & message to the inside.

Such great cards, Deb! I love the sparkle!
These are so cool Deb – love the look of both of them. Soooo very pretty.
Deb, Deb, Deb……and you thought Senor Mojo had walked out on you! Girl….YOU ROCKED THIS! Your cards are FABULOUS! FAB. U. LOUS. Wow, these are GORGEOUS! I love both (especially the glitter -y one), but I love how you used the landscape inside the card. Awesome, my friend! You rocked it!
Thanks so much, Mari! I’m glad that you like both cards (and I’m pretty happy with them, too!) 🙂
these are beautiful!!! I made one of these once – only once- without the kit and it was not easy. Took me a few tries to get it right – I think I need that kit 🙂
Your cards are all gorgeous! You should be proud of your colouring, it isn’t as easy as it looks! It’s a how just using glitter paper can make a card so beautiful!
Beautiful winter scenes! I LOVE the glitter one!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow either card is beautiful, tunnel or not, the dimension is gorgeous. I love the glittery paper choice. The lamp die is so Christmas. Love this much!
Beautiful tunnel card! I love the dimension and details! Pretty scene with these awesome dies! I love that paper you used on the front too! The layered, glittery version of your card is beautiful too!
I really love these cards, especially the sparkly one!
I love layered cards. This is stunning. Beautiful work colouring them.
Deb your cards are lovely! The coloring is lovely on the tunnel card, and I especially love the way you used cobalt blue glitter Cardstock! Thank you for .
A duo of WOW cards that have me completely dazzled! I’ve not tried one of Photoplay’s Tunnel cards (have a few of their dies/papers/stamps), but you’ve convinced me I need to do so! That card is awe-mazing! And the second, with all the gorgeous sparkle: swooning! Thank you for the smiles!
Love your card in the glitter cardstock! Makes it look magical!
BEEEEEEAUUUUUUUUUTIFUL CARDS! I love them all! Especially your last card with all that glitter glitz!
Beautiful card especially the tunnel card with and without the tunnel!
Your layer cards are phenomenal. I love how amazing both the layer and the tunnel card look. Great job.
Wow just fantastic cards. I have only made maybe 2 tunnel cards so seeing yours wants me to do it again. Just wonderful dimension!
I I love the lamp cards so much. I actually gasped when I saw the tunnel card because it was so beautiful. Then you re/created it with a purple sparkly background and it looked so good!
Hi Deb … always like your style.
Hello, Gloria! So nice to ‘see’ you 🙂 I’m glad that you like my cards; I hope you’ve enjoyed the Hop!
I love the look at tunnel cards. I have never tried to make one but you have given me the inspiration to make one. Very beautiful.
