Think Pink!

I have a confession to make.

I have a problem.

It's a bit of an addiction.

It's a bit of co-dependence.

I am not wholly sure that it is healthy...

...or even in good design.

But it is my problem none-the-less.

My name is Christi and I have a problem with using too many layers.

It started out so innocently.

A bit of a black border to make a card pop.

A border punched edge to add just that tiny pizzazz.

But something went very wrong along the way.

I started using layers as a crutch/solution/go-to-fix when my designs weren't working.

That brings us to today's card. 

I may have hit rock bottom with this one.

13 layers!?!?


I think that I have a problem...with using too many layers...

I look at that card and see 4 layers. It doesn't count if you have to frame up your layers, that's just good card making. :) Spoken by another layer addict (although that is not shown in today's post)

Yes, you obviously do have a "layering problem" -- but it makes for beautiful cards!

I don't see a problem, I just see a beautiful card! :) Love all that pink!

Girl, didn't you know layers are 'IN' so you just go ahead and layer away! LOL!

Jimmi said...

Christi, Christi....there is NO such thing as too much of's all about what you want so go for it with 100 layers if you want to :)

Love this card!

Wow! Terrific card!, but I know I don't have the patience for 13 layers. I hope you're not mass producing it:)

Oooh, you are the Layer Queen Christi. But that card looks too good to criticise the number of layers.
