Paper Layering

Let’s take this up a notch and start looking at layering.  Layering is a really useful technique that can be used to combine all sorts of things.  Here, I’ll just show you a card that has layered paper and chipboard.

Honestly, I think it’s pretty cool that you can get something that looks like that just by layering flat things.  Now, if we’re going to talk layering, we need to talk adhesives.  There are all sorts of adhesives you can use.  My favorite is double sided tape (from a tape roller like the one below).  Occasionally I’ll use pop dots.  These are thicker foam bits that have adhesive on both sides, so that the item you’re adhering has a dimensional aspect to the layering.  Finally, there are all sorts of glues.  I’ve also just learned about the Xyron sitcker maker (and particularly the really little one, which isn’t a big investment).  To be honest, my absolute favorite adhesive hands down is the pink thermoweb tape runner.  I’ve not found anything else that works as well, as easily, and on as many materials.  But, that’s just my personal preference.

Layering is boring.  Take me back to the coloring!

Soooo… if you can layer paper, can you do cool things with cut outs?

Let’s go back and take a look at all those decorating options again.
