A Quick Tutorial on DIMENSION

I wanted to show you all how I love 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 them the same way... in this case I will be popping up the candles... so I only colored them! You will see why...

Next I cut out the candles that I was going to pop up and I am getting them ready for the next step which is...

Add some double stick foam adhesive to the back of the candles you cut out. You may have to trim the foam to fit... but that is easy to do with some sharp scissors.when the candles are adhered... you can see how they are lifted away from the card ... adding a lot of dimension to the card.


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