This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite One or Multi Layer Project (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I must admit that I'm a bit of a convert when it comes to the CAS card styles, and they are very much growing on me, but I do still like the effort that goes into creating an multi-layered embellished card. I think it also shows that it's been hand-crafted and not mass-produced.

More than 1 layer on most of my cards
but I don't tend to have loads of layers very often
normally most of my cards are 1 or 2 layers but this one I wanted to do the outside of the shape technique on the cute image so I have added multi layers for the effect
so I guess I have to choose multi layers...



I guess multiple layers are my favorite because I love all the wonderful goodies we have to use to create them with.  Having said that, there's nothing more beautiful than a well designed CAS card in my humble opinion and actually feel they are a bit harder to create. 


I love multi-layer cards. The layers create so much interest and colour and texture.


It has to be multi-layer for me as I love combining lots of pretty's to hard to choose just one!


I do really enjoy more than one layer on my cards - I feel it's a great way to add dimension and texture to your cards - and use up awesome embellishments, dies etc. FUN!!!


I love adding layers to my projects, in fact, sometimes I don't actually know when to stop, I think that's why I find clean & simple styles so difficult to master. So I would choose layers every time.

I love layering, because it gives such depth to the end project. I did this envelope in white and silver layers. It's going to be handed out as a wedding gift. 


Layers for me, I have a lifetime's worth of paper to use up!!

I went for the one layer option for this, not because I don't like multi-layers but because my style is far more clean and simple.  I might use a couple of layers normally, so even leaving those alone for the single layer was a challenge in itself!

**coming soon**

I like simple and one layer cards, but sometimes they cost me a lot of energy. For this challenge I go for multi layered cards. I like to work with different design papers and colors and combining them into a peaceful whole.

So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite of our options.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to win the prize.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Hugs from the AYLI girls.
