Papertrey Make it Monday - layered mats and frames - Noel

I liked this week's technique spotlight on layered mats as frames.  I took my 2.5" Limitless Layers from Papertrey and cut it twice in Ocean Tides and Kraft stock using the sun shape.  I then cut out a circle from the same set so that I was just left with a frame of the Kraft cardstock.
I had previously used the Book Print Impression plate to give the Kraft layer a bit more dimension.  I stamped Speckled Egg (Jenni Bowlin ink) snowflakes from my Mod Squad set on the white card base and on the ocean tides layer.  I then stamped the Think Big Favorites sentiment 'Noel' in Spiced Tin Jenni Bowlin ink and then once it was all dry, I used the Frosted Lace Stickles to add a little bling spread about with my finger.
I popped up the framed kraft layer on foam dots and set it off a bit so you could see the tips of the Ocean Tides layer behind.

Ink: Jenni Bowlin Speckled Egg, Spiced Tin
