Dimensions and Textures

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This week at Tuesday Throwdown, our challenge is “Lots of dimension and textures”. LOL – has that ever been a problem in the card making world?? I guess this is one challenge we should see lots of entries.

Our sponsor is MY GRAFICO and I used this delicious strawberry jam image. And loaded her up with about 6 layers of papers, a felted strawberry 3-D sticker from American Crafts, decorated with flowers and pearls, popped up the jam jar and the sentiment from Just Rite Stamps for even more dimension; added a doily and sewed the edges for texture. All the white cardstock is from PTI and I just bought their white adhesive sheets to try (used it on the sentiment border and the mat for the jam jar) and they are the most convenient things.

Here is the card:

How’s that for an overkill on texture and dimensions? Now I’m off to weigh her to make sure I don’t need extra postage – oh, and I better give her a fitting too, to make sure she fits in a regular envelope.

Have fun with your dimensional and textured card!! I sure did with mine.

    Steph, what a delicious card full of texture and dimension. Love it! Your felt strawberry is a cutie, too. I just mailed a card to my son yesterday –$.84 and it wasn’t full of texture and embellies, but it was square and had to be handstamped. Ugh! Love your card!!!

  8. Hey Stephanie, thank you for the kind words.
    I added my photo to your following, but for some weird reason it’s not showing on your list. A first for me on this issue, but then “it’s a computer”… (my excuse always for odd happenings). Will try again.
    Have a fantastic day!!!
