MOROCCAN SQUARE LAYERED CARDS


for Paper Rose Design Team

Today I wanted to share these cards I made featuring the beautiful Moroccan Square Die 
from Paper Rose.
All of the colours on these cards were made using Mica sprays on recycled card or packaging.
The various surfaces gave some really cool effects.


 On some surfaces the spray remained a bit sticky. Over these I rubbed a gold foil sheet 
which stuck to the surface forming random highlights. 
Hard to photograph. Example in this card above.
I wanted a mosaic effect, so I die cut multiple mica sprayed colours & white card layers.


I glued two layers of the white outline together with liquid adhesive to a flat base layer.
I inlaid the colour pieces like a jigsaw using the same adhesive.


Clear Crackle Accents was applied to some of the infill spaces, giving a unique texture.


Layered sentiment die cuts were cut out of matching colours 
making the only other decoration needed on these cards.


 I created more interest by angling the die cut in various ways on the card,
& by adding an extra shadow layer to the sentiments.
These die are so versatile & can be used in many ways.


Hope this inspires you to create some layers in your card making.
Cheers for now,              Deb
