Layering handmade PL cards

 I love to layer pretty papers when creating my own project life style cards, I think the layers just make the cards really interesting and not so flat.  I also ink all the edges to make the colors pop.

One of my favorite ways to do this is with a Circle punch, or several,  in a variety of sizes.

 To start I chose to use a pad of 6x6 pattern paper from My Minds Eye Indie Chic collection I punched out several circles in different patterns and sizes.
I also used some layered stickers from the same collection to embellish my cards.  The circle "theme" is also perfect for embellishing with Flair buttons for added interest and personalization. My go to flair is always from TheCraftyPickle.
For this card I layered 3 circles in different patterns and sizes then embellished with this adorable doodle flower flair from TheCraftyPickle shop

This card has a beautiful 3D layered sticker and a Watercolor butterfly flair. Using the layered stickers and flair buttons just add that special touch to make this card pop with interest. 

I created a total of 4 cards for this set. I really like to have a few handmade embellished cards on hand to keep in my stash so I can just grab them when needed to fill in a layout. 
I also added some pretty sequins from the Spring Fling mix available in TheCraftyPickle shop.  They are my favorite  embellishment when I want to add a little bling. 

I hope this post inspires you to create a few handmade card to keep in your crafty stash.

Happy Scrappin'
