Cute as a Button

Here's an out of the ordinary card (for me!) that I made ages ago, but never shared here. It's much more involved and layered than my typical cards, but just wanted to try it. I love the look, but I don't have the time nor patience to pull it off all the time.

I do admire those who can put so many layers of just paper and make it look fabulous. I'm not talking about just multi-layers because I do that, too. But my layers usually have more visible elements, such a doily or a die cut. I'm talking about patterned paper mounted on cardstock and an image, mounted on card stock again. I can never get them straight every time! I blame it on my cutter..haha. Oh, and I'm too lazy and too cheap :).

The stamp is GinaK Designs, papers by October Afternoon, dies by Spellbinders and sentiment by SRM Stickers Baby.

Here's how involved this card is. I paper pieced the teddy (twice!) and mounted the pieces on different layers to give this 3D effect.
