Can you believe we are in the final days of the countdown? You know what that means... *smiles*
I am SO excited about today's cards. When I created Garden of Life I was thinking about some fun ways of utilizing the stamps. You have already seen that some of the stamps are 2 step stamping what if I told you that I also created some of these stamps to have 3-d potential? I adore dimension on cards because they "pop" as well as have an interesting look.
I don't have Nichole's new patterned paper but can say with confidence that it will be IDEAL for this tutorial. Since I had to improvise I used one of my fav lines from Cosmo Cricket called Dutch Girl.
Here is the 3-D "look" you will be achieving by following this tutorial:
And now onto the 3-D tutorial.
I began by stamping two of the same images. You will need a minimum of two for each 3-d flower you create.
Either follow the line and cut it OR cut selected pieces (see the top card for an example of this)
Place pop dots/dimensionals to the back side of your cut image.
Note: To achieve more "pop" add more dimensionals
Line it up on your flower and adhere.
Finished mini card (measures 3x4)
