It's once again my turn to set the challenge over at Little Red Wagon and this week I have selected "Truly Dimensional". What does that mean?
Well it means that your card or some element of the card (image, embellishments) needs to have some dimension. Whether you choose a fancy fold, use dimensional adhesive or layers on the paper and embellishment, the options are endless. Just remember no flat allowed for this challenge!
For my card I decided to work dimension into the card shape creating a centre step card. This was my first time making this style of card, however it came together pretty quick after I figured out my cuts and folds to make an A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).
I used a digital image from Sassy Cheryl called Bubble Gum Fun. I love this image and knew I had to find just the right card to really showcase this super cute and fun image. The paper is Simple Stories Homespun. I think I should have bought 2 of the 6x6 pads because I am loving all of the great colours and patterns.
To create dimension with the image, I printed her 3 times. The first layer I used my circle die to cut the image out. I coloured the background and just the outside edges of the image.
The second layer was coloured completely and fussy cut. Using dimensional adhesive I layered this image over top of the circle cut image.
The final layer was just the bubble gum. I coloured the gum and added Glossy Accents. This was also adhered with dimensional adhesive.
A closer view of the image. I added a bit of Wink of Stella glitter to the aqua colours on her dress, which you can't see well from this picture.
