OWH VCMP - Triple Time

Donna Inks is the hostess for the fourth challenge in Operation Write Home's Virtual Card Making Party.  Her challenge?  A triple time card.  I love the three dimensional look, but prefer using patterned paper.  But, cutting out all of the layers and having them be even is too much work!

So, I opened my trusty SCAL, and made my own cut file.  I used the file to cut the layers on my cutter.  Instead of layering solid pieces of cardstock, I can layer frames of patterned paper and matting!!

You can download the free SVG or SCUT file to cut your own layered cards!  The files contain cuts for both the patterned paper and for the matting. 

Lesson learned - make a mark on the back of the patterned paper to indicate which direction each piece should be glued.  Ask me how I know....

Here is the card I made today for Donna's challenge.

I think the paper that I used is a little too busy.  Paper is Hot Off The Press, snowflake accents are Favorite Findings, stamp from TPC Studios.
