I choose which cuts & stamps I wanted to play with and than made 3 identical card bases and half & half strips before embellishing each with a more involved embellishment from simple to most embellished.
On the first card, I kept everything simple & flat.
On my middle card, I added a little dimension by popping up the bird, birdbath & bird house.
On the last version I made a larger impact with a the large doily stamped in red behind the other cuts. I popped up the mat stack over that and the fence & birdhouse on the top layer.
It can be a lot of fun to play around with this whether you're a crafter who piles it on or keeps it simple! Either way, it helps you to get out of your comfort zone & play on the other side!
