Riley's Lots and Lots of Layers ...




Evening!  It's time for another Riley and Company Challenge - this week it's brought us by DT Member, Heather!  Her challenge this week is to  create a distressed/shabby chic card with at least 7 layers (matts are counted as a layer) but the more layers the better!   Absolutely my fave style card to make - lots and lots of layers!  :) 

I used Coffee Riley for my card this week - perfect for me :)   I paper-pieced the chair that Riley is sitting on to match the dsp I used for the card backdrop.   This card was SO much fun to make!  I left the inside blank with just a tiny pocket to add a coffee gift card at a later date.
I also distressed the edges of the cardstock and dsp with sandpaper and just love the soft, Parisian feel to this card.  Thanks, Heather, for the wonderful inspiration to create this Riley card this week :) 

Remember, you can link up your distressed/shabby chic/layered cards here on the Challenge blog.  If you use a gallery to upload your card, please remember to use code Riley1911 so we can find you and leave you some love :)  You can also stop on over at the blog and see what the DT have created using this wonderful theme this week!   Happy crafting!

  4. What a cute Riley and yes, perfect for you, did they design this one after you???? Guess not since I think you take your coffee to go, with the running around you have to do :) This is adorable and love the paper piecing.
