I love how colorful the craft looks! It is very easy to do and the Cutting Mat was the perfect companion to my swivel knife.

First, you need to select your cardstock. I am using Bazzill Cardstock in a variety of colors, arranged like a rainbow. I think one with only a few colors would look lovely too!

Next, Use your Supreme Ruler and your craft knife to cut papers. You can also use the marks an alignment lines on the Cutting Mat.

Now the fun part begins! Use your swivel knife to cut a random shape on your first cardstock. The swivel knife is perfect to create freehand cuts, especially curves!

Put your cardstock over the second layer and cut the shape leaving a small border. There’s no need to be precise!

Repeat the same process for all the layers.

To give my art work more dimension I added a few 3d dots on the back of each color and them put each layer on the frame.

See all the dimension? I would have added more color but my frame wasn’t deep enough!
