Layering Die Cuts CAS Card

I was inspired by a2z Scrapbook's challenge theme this month: Layer it. I decided to use some autumn colors to create a simple thank you card.

If you look straight at it, it looks like the focal point of the card is on the stamped sentiments since the white die cut isn't all that special. I love this sentiment from Stampin' Up's Flourishing Phrases set. :) I took the hassle to stamp the key words in yellow, orange, and red pigment inks, and heat embossing them with clear embossing powder. I think little details like this really make a big impact on simple designs. 

Now if you tilt the card and look at it from the side, you'll notice that I've layered seven thanks die cuts together. (white + (yellow, orange, red) x2) Usually I'll just adhere white fun foam to my die cuts if I want them to have some dimension, but adhering different colored die cuts together is another option. And it sure is a fun way to layer things up!
