3D Creations

Creating multi layered cards using 3D stickers is quick and easy - but have you ever tried doing it yourself? The easiest way is to find multiple copies of the same image, cut the image out in pieces and then layering the pieces using raised adhesive dots. I recently found a company that actually provides you with pre-cut images to make the process more enjoyable.
This card uses the Reddy Company "antique rose" pattern. The roses, lilac and leaves vary in layers from two all the way to five and are attached to a background design using small adhesive dots (some which I had to trim down to mere slivers). I then trimmed the image background using a deckle edged scissor. For the card and background I used papers that matched the colors in the image. To add to the antique feel I edged the panels with a brown ink pad.  The Reddy Company "antique rose" package comes with six background images on one sheet as well as with a second sheet that has all the pre-cut layers neatly numbered. The punching out and layering processes due to the small fragile pieces are very time consuming ... but the results are well worth it. Try it!
