Faux Layers Card

Faux Layers Birthday Card
For a bit of a change, I wanted to create card that looked like it had layers & appeared 3D but wanted to accomplish this with nothing but ink and a white card base. This showcases what can be done with limited resources. If you have limited tools for card making, take heart. You can create a great card with next to nothing. The only supplies needed to make a card like this are ink, white card stock, a small sponge, scrap copy paper, sticky notes (used to frame the tag shape for sponging) and rubber stamps. Happy stamping!


  1. Wow, Laurie, those techniques totally tricked me into thinking this WAS layered! Ha! If I hadn't read your description, I would have thought that was twine tied around that "piece of design paper" and the tag was separate! Great work!

  2. Yep, I was tricked also!! Woohoo, that is the best trick of give depth and layers and still have a flat mailable card!!! Great idea, and wonderful card, Laurie. So proud of you!!! AND, I am being inspired by your creations!! Kudos!! LOL
