Friday Focus on Dimension

Over on Flourishes Blog today Christine is showing us ways to bring dimension to your creations. She has a fabulous tutorial be sure to check it out. My husband is one of the greatest treasures that God has given to me and I thought about making a card to slip into his lunch this week.
Deciding on the stamp to use wasn't hard. I adore A Guiding Light set for just about all masculine cards. The sail is perfect for adding dimension so a win win situation. First I stamped out the ship and then the sails seperately two times. My brown frame panel was easy peasy to make. The Grand Calibur is awesome for any of my Spellbinders shapes I have. This one was using Spellbinders Nestabilites Petite Ovals LG. After it was cut out I added dimensionals to the back of the panel to pop it up.



Below you will see a close up of the ships masts (isn't that what its called) It looks like three layers this way. I have the base layer of the image, then I cut out the whole shape of the masts as one layer popped up. Then I cut out just the first set of masts you see in the image for the third layer. A bit of stickles on the water for a shimmery look and voila a card for hubby!
