Aug 2018 Technique Challenge - Add Dimension
Once a month at Try Stampin' on Tuesday, the Design Team features a technique. For August, our technique is adding dimension to our projects. We also have a tutorial on our blog. My card was made using several techniques. First, I layered and glued cardstock together to add dimension. In addition, I added foam tape to some of the decorative elements and I allowed the die cut foliage and flowers to curl up off of the card. Finally, uncharacteristically for me, I added plenty of layers.
The "Leaves" coverall die was used to cut six layers - five layers of white cardstock and one of the light green. I glued all of these layers together, adhering the green one on top. After ensuring the glue was thoroughly dry, the top layer was sponged with green ink and the layered panel was adhered to a card base. Die cut flowers and foliage were arranged and adhered with foam tape onto the card. The sentiment was die cut six times and stacked with glue before being adhered to the center circle. A tiny dragonfly was added. The inside of the card was lined with white cardstock and decorated with dragonflies. Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and dragonflies but does not also photograph well.
