When it comes to cards, I love adding dimension to them. It can be through layers, foam squares, or even just a small shape on top of another piece of paper. Here’s how you can add just a tad of dimension on a card by using a die cutting machine and a very sharp blade!
–Dark green cardstock (from the Botanical collection)
–Light green cardstock (from the Botanical collection)
–Basis black cardstock
–Foam adhesive squares
-die cutting machine (I used a Silhouette CAMEO)
To begin, I used my die cutting machine to cut out all my card pieces. It always amazes me at how detailed my machine can cut!
Next, I added some Tombow glue to the back of my black “lucky” word. This glue is perfect for tiny details because the tip is so small.
Glue the word onto the light green tab.
Next, fold the green card and place the white strip through the light green tab. (This replaces ribbon.)
Use some foam squares and place them on the back of the light green tab. I love dimension!
Place the green tab in the middle of the card base.
Use some more glue and adhere the white strip on the inside of the card.
And then you’re done! It doesn’t take a lot of time or materials to let someone know that you were thinking about them. A handcrafted card (to me) always holds more meaning than a store-bought one.
