PTI Make It Monday #72: Step It Up - Embellishments

Hello! This weeks PTI MIM challenge was brought by Dawn to step up the embellishments! Making your own embellishments for your projects with die cuts, ect and how to step-it-up from simple to super fabulous! :)
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!

Hugs- Kelly
