I really enjoy making bold color cards, and today’s technique is perfect for that! You can do this fun stacking technique with many different die shapes.

I started each card with six different colors of cardstock… all cut to the same size. I also cut the shadow die from the Neat and Tangled Celebrate Die Set in the center of each piece. After cutting horizontally through each piece, I adhered the pieces on top of each other but slightly offset for a stacked, stair-step look.

I also used the “celebrate” sentiment die from the Neat and Tangled Celebrate Die Set to cut from the six colors of cardstock. I adhered each die cut together with a Quickie Glue Roller Pen to create a dimensional sentiment and added it in the center of the stacked pieces on the card front. I also white heat embossed the greeting from the Neat and Tangled Celebrate Stamp Set.

I created another example with one of my all-time favorite dies – the Neat and Tangled Awesome Die Set. This die is incredible. I love this color combo!

I also gave both cards a bit of subtle shimmer with my Shimmer Spritz. Game changer.
