Kortteihin saa helposti vähän ulottuvuutta kaksipuoleisilla kohotarrapaloilla, joilla voi nostaa tekstiä tai pieniä kuvia paremmin esille.
You can get easily more dimension on cards with double-sided sticker pieces. They can be used to lift up text or pictures from the background.
There are different sized sticker pieces: some are thicker then others. I have pieces that are 3, 2 and 1,5 mm thick. In this birthday card I have used the first two sizes. The word 'synttäri' (synttäripäivä = birthday) is lifted more then the other words. In the next picture you can see the card from the side.
In addition I have used two different washi tapes and glitter glue to make colorful dots here and there on the card. The text is made with stamps.
In the second card I cut out waving flags that say 'Happy birthday'. They are slightly lifted up from the background on the left corner, where I used a thicker sticker piece on the very end and 2 - 3 smaller ones before I glued the flag flat on the card. Also the middle cupcake is lifted up. The cupcakes are cut out of scrapbook paper and I have also used it before (link).
There's also glitter and stamped letters on this card.
Here I used the leftovers from the cutting of the round shapes (with Big Shot). I trimmed the edges a bit and glued some behind the cupcakes. And they fit there perfectly! Luckily I saved quite many of these leftovers (because you never know, when you might need them!). :)
I gave the final touches for the cards with Distress Ink that I put on the sides with a make-up sponge. It gives more color and makes the card also look a bit old. There are also more "professional" tools for this, but the sponge works nicely as well.
In the end I stamped 'handmade by' behind the card and added my name. I bought a really nice stamp set from Germany, which has many stamps like this.
These cards I made for the card collection for the new children's hospital. I wrote about that the last time (link). You can also join and make cards!
