The CAS class that I was most drawn to was the Tone on Tone class with the layered die cuts. I used my Cricut with the Paper Lace cartridge to cut the large, intricate details, making the 6 under layers white and the top layer colored. The circles were made with punches.
Then I decided to try it another way. This time I used tone on tone plain and patterned paper. I used the Stampin' Up Beautiful Wings Embosslits. I used the colored paper (checkerboard) for each layer of the butterflies (instead of the white as above).
I used the same patterned paper for the side strip as for the butterflies. I chose a second pattern for the sentiment (on dimensionals), which is from the OWH/Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments.
Even though this technique is a bit time intensive, I love the look and results! I hope you take the time to play around with it.
