Topic: 3D paperwork

Back to the formal side of things - accomplished by a simple layout, low contrast, and script text. I used white shimmer cardstock run through the d'vine swirls Cuttlebug folder as the background and allowed the light blue card base to show around the edges.

That clear sticker catches the light oddly so I will just point out that it is really silver text on a clear background.

Nothing Impossible
Topic: 3D paperwork

Today's card is much simpler, relying on a speckled scrapbook paper for a calm background. I rounded two opposing corners to soften up the frame and added no embellishments.

The clear sticker had enough visual weight to balance out the flowers.

Love the Lord
Topic: 3D paperwork

The background paper for this card lends a more playful element. By filling the whole background with stripes there is a good contrast to the curly edges in the flowers and leaves.

The color contrast is very striking, as well.

The text is, again, a clear sticker.

The Day the Lord Made
Topic: 3D paperwork

For this card I chose to let the 3D image hang over the borders of the focal paper a bit. I like how it makes it a little bit more casual feeling than it would be if everything were constrained.

This card also uses a clear sticker but in this case it is small gold print.

Scripture Sticker
Topic: 3D paperwork

I spent a block of time punching out and assembling 3D elements from die-cut sheets one day. Then I spent another big block of time matching focal papers to each image. A third block of time was devoted to selecting base cards and then I spent a final session selecting text and embellishments. All that prep work so I could 'sit cown and whip out 20 cards' - yeah right!

Most of the cards used table scraps and this one features a crackle print scrapbook paper. I think this is the last little scrap of this and I am going to miss it.

I used a clear sticker for the text on this one.

Hearts in 3D
Topic: 3D paperwork

This 3D image is from the 'Fred She Said' blog. I turned the layers by 45 degrees to add even more depth. Layers of printed papers and plain cardstock echo the colors in the image.

I left a blank lower corner so a greeting could be added at the time the occasion for sending is selected.

Baroque Rose
Topic: 3D paperwork

I love how these elements came together. The rose is one of the foil 3Ds and the two layers of Spellbinder frames were received in a swap. I had a years-old scrapbook page-a-day calender that yielded the baroque background

I added photo corners and placed all on tan folded cardstock.

Spring Flower
Topic: 3D paperwork

I decided to do another spring-up card to reinforce the steps and measurements in my head. For this one I added printed scrapbook papers to the face and the base and then featured a 3D element.

I may have to do more of these - really simple.

Red on Red
Topic: 3D paperwork

This 3D image is one I printed some time ago off the internet on a free site. I like how the image escapes its frame - and I trimmed off the outer border of the frame to make it fit the card better.

I added a rich red printed paper over the green card base to further enhance the card.

The text is gold peel-off

Love Those Pansies
Topic: 3D paperwork

 I think these may be the last of the foil 3D sheets I bought last fall. Love them! Especially since they are punch out instead of cut out.

This one comes with the oval backing which helps with design. I tore a piece of printed paper for the left edge and added the image along with two extra flowers that were part of the page.

Purple folded cardstock and a silver peel-off greeting were the only other touches needed.

Recipe For Love
Topic: 3D paperwork

I created another countertop scene for this card but left it in portrait format because of the size of the 3D element. This is the 2nd half of yesterday's illustration.

I had the text sticker with some kitchen stickers and decided they fit this card.

Blueberry Kitchen
Topic: 3D paperwork

I've had this 3D illustration printed off for literally years and just got around to cutting it out! When I did, I thought that 6 layers was really too much so I divided the step-outs into every other one and made two arrangements. One will be featured tomorrow.

For this one I turned the card to landscape and used patterned paper on the upper part to look like wallpaper. This allowed me to 'set' my pie on the countertop. I used a sticker to add a picture to the 'wall' to make this really feel like a kitchen.

The wooden spoon and fork are also stickers. I didn't add a sentiment to this one.

Golden Roses
Topic: 3D paperwork

From one of the sheets of foiled 3D images I chose this yellow rose. Printed cardstock with a yellow rose fabric print made the perfect backdrop. I backed the 3D with black for a sharp contrase and added it to a dark green folded card base.

A gold peel-off made the perfect text finish.

Gone in a Flash
Topic: 3D paperwork

Christmas is OVER? Very well. This is the last Christmas card I shall show until I start making them for next December.

We'll finifh with a flashy one, one of my favorites. The poinsettia foil 3D got an elegant floral backround and I tied silver cording at the bottom to pick up the foil color.

No greeting needed - the card says it all. The folded card base is really tan rather than the gray it appears to be.

Well, that was certainly more than 12 days of Christmas!

Warm Wishes Scroll
Topic: 3D paperwork

You probably remember this image from November as well, when I started posting 3D Christmas cards. Again, different backing paper, larger card and a 3D greeting in place of the rub-on.

I really like the distressed-look candy-striped paper that works so well with the image colors.

Coming Around Again
Topic: 3D paperwork

Back when I first started the 3D images I created one with the other copy of this pattern. I changed up the background, made the card a little larger and then used a 3D greeting sticker in place of the rub-on used last time.

In fact, I bought these greeting stickers with exactly this image in mind!

Golden Bells That Shine
Topic: 3D paperwork

Here we're back to the foil 3D and these elegant shapes. I made several layers using cocoa, mustard and plaid that all shimmer. The smaller layers are popped up on foam over the plaid.

I used a green folded card base and added gold Stickles to all the decorative bands on the bells. I used green Stickles on the ribbons and added a clear sticker for the greeting.

Back in Pairs
Topic: 3D paperwork

These square 3D images require a slightly larger card but that lends some elegance as well.I used gold Stickles on the ribbons on both images as a first step. The left card has the image popped up on foam dots over a circle patterned paper and mossy green cardstock. The oval 3D greeting sticker got an added cranberry colored border.

The second card uses dark green cardstock and a tiny white poinsettia print paper. The image is mounted flat to the paper but the greeting sticker is 3D.

Sweeping the Snow
Topic: 3D paperwork

Think we're about done with Christmas cards? Not really - I have enough to last to the end of the month!

This foil image looked pretty flat until I added green Stickles to all the green parts of the trees and gold to the lanterns. Zippity Zingo! I used a corner round punch on the image and popped it up on foam dots over a plaid background. 

After I stamped the greeting at the bottom I added green glitter to the green stripes in the plaid. Blue folded cardstock makes up the base.

Snowman's Sled Ride
Topic: 3D paperwork

This 3D image was so simple I tried to give it a little extra zing in the treatment. This starts with a green border and tiny white button brads at the corners. This is popped up on foam dots over the background paper - more of the swirling snow. This time, though, I stamped snowflakes all over the paper and added clear rhinestones to the center of all of them.

I also stamped the greeting at the bottom and dotted the 'I' with another rhinestone. Cornflower blue cardstock was folded for the base.
