I have a Tips and Tricks post up over at the Skipping Stones Design blog and they were so nce to let me share it here with you all too!
Diving into the realm of three dimension is super simple and so easy! What a way to bring life to your static card or project! Skipping Stones Design offers many stamps transform into 3D so well, especially the small butterfly from Healing Wings.
It's such an easy trick, with few steps involved. Let me show (or remind!) you how...
Start by stamping the image twice onto your patterned paper and fussy cut around the images. (You'll want to use heavy weight card stock or high quality patterned paper so you don't end up with a floppy image.) I lightly shaded one with markers as well-just for some added depth. This will be the back wing.
Then, adhere one image completely to another piece of paper. Fold a portion of the top image over slightly.
Next, glue the folded portion to your other image in relatively the same spot. You can shift the front image slightly for a more natural look. You'll end up with a lovely three dimensional butterfly by using only one stamp.
Complete your card with a few finishing touches. The sentiments from Healing Wings are perfect for a loss or traumatic life event. The butterfly is also so symbolic during these times, and the three dimensional trick brings a feeling of life, love and comfort.
It's my first time playing over at The Ribbon Carousel and I am looking forward to participating again! I used some May Arts Ruffled Trim and Natural Burlap String to compliment the beautiful butterfly. This time it was a sketch, Laura always comes up with amazing sketches.
