A tip... Layering punched shapes and framelits

Here is a little tip for you to use with many of your punches and/or framelits...
This picture is a tool I use to show how you can layer up many of your framelits / punches that don't have an upsized buddy, or perhaps you prefer a finer edged frame.
The celery piece at the top left is the original size you will get with this particular punch. By carefully cutting across two of these punched peices and discarding the appropriate pieces from each, you can be left with a slightly larger backgroiund for framing up a greeting or image.
Take special note of the cutting lines on both pieces on the left...they are slightly different from each other. Also note that the larger piece has formed a complimentary but different shape. The four curved nodules behind have become eight. It works well as you will see on the card below.

This design was cased a long time ago from something I saw on Teneale Williams blog. Teneale has a special style that is to die for! I Can't help but case some of her work!!!
You can find her blog here
The rectangular sky/grass is achieved by sponging through a rectangular template before removing and stamping the tree.
