A Quick tutorial on Adding Dimension

>> Thursday, April 9, 2009

I wanted to show you all How to add dimension to a card and this awesome image from DRS worked perfectly. Here are the steps:

Stamp 2 of the same images
Color both sets of images the same way. In this case, I am popping up the candles... so I only colored them ... you'll see why!
Next, I cut out the candles that I am going to pop up and I am getting them ready for the next step which is...

Adding double stick foam adhesive to the back of the candles that you cut out. You may have to trim the foam adhesive to fit, but this is a snap with sharp scissors.



When the candles are adhered, you can see that they are lifted away from the card... adding a lot of dimension to the card!




And here is your final result! This is so easy and really adds a great little pop (literally) to your
cards!

Please check out all of the wonderful images that DRS has to offer here... and when you do... keep this technique in mind and see what ones YOU can make pop!
