Extreme Card Making with Cheery Lynn Designs

Today I am sharing a card that I made up in my head.
I am not afraid to make any kind of design, but I lack the engineering skills to make a card like this go smoothly.  It took quite a bit of time and if I make another, I know what I can do to improve this design.
There might be a name for this kind of card, but I have no clue what it is called.


This card is 6 layers and I tried to decorate each layer so that when looking through you could see all the embellishments at one time.  I tried to have the embellishments staggered so nothing overlapped each other.


Since our new challenge is beautiful borders, I used lot of Cheery Lynn Designs borders on each layer.


The best way I can describe this is that it is sort of a shadowbox card.


Here is a side view so you can see how I put it together.


 This is a top looking through view.


I had a ton of fun making this, but next time, I might try to find some directions from someone who has already mastered this!


 My favorite part is my flowers on the front.  The greatest things to me is that when I make my own flowers with the Cheery Lynn Designs flower dies, I can use any kind of paper I want.   The final product is one of a kind, because I chose the design of the flower and the paper to perfectly match what I am making, that is a very GOOD THING to me!!
I hope you have enjoyed this project today, this has been Jeannie DeGruccio from The Polka Cabana with today's post.

  5. Jeannie this is an awesome card. I'm sure that these 2D photos don't even begin to show the real beauty. If you give it away, I'm sure that the recipient will adore it for years. Hugs, dj1952
