Paper Tole Technique

Good Morning! Today's Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC) over on Splitcoast Stampers is to make a card using a technique called Paper Tole. Basically paper tole is the art of layering images to create dimension. I decided to use my Birthday set from My Favourite Things. I stamped the image 3 times, coloured the base image and the remaining 2, cut out the lady and her right arm only, and the cake. Then I layered the dress & arm over the base with SU mini glue dots. Next I layered the cake twice in the same way. I didn't layer the candles because they're way too small and way too fiddly! LOL! I also made the sentiment with my SU 2 oval shape punches and added a little ribbon.
