Gaylynn’s Technique of the Week: Adding Dimension & Texture
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hello, Gaylynn here with a technique that I use often. It is adding dimension and texture to your card-making projects.

This can be done with most images, by repeat stamping and then adding the second trimmed layers from duplicate images. For this example, I used flowers and leaves.

I stamped and colored the background portion onto a cardstock panel. A solid background panel was added behind the front panel. Next, I stamped a second set of flowers and leaves onto a different piece of cardstock.

The second set was colored and then trimmed with scissors. Dies are optional. I used foam tape behind each of these pieces. I positioned and layered the extra pieces and then added a sentiment panel.

Here is the card a little closer. By adding an additional layer of the same or coordinating images, you get an easy 3-D type of look and texture.

I would love to hear how you create dimension and texture for your projects.

Thanks so much for visiting.
