Hi, everyone! Teri here with a set of handmade cards that will bring a smile 🙂 Using 3D Foam products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, it is an excellent way to add pop and dimension to all your paper crafting and memory keeping projects.
Making those Smile Card Backgrounds
The striped backgrounds were easy to create. I cut several striped rectangles from pink, green, orange and blue cardstock.
Next, I folded three cards and adhered the rectangles to them with Dual Tip Glue Pen. One of the tips on the Dual Tip Glue Pen has a thin tip which makes it perfect for applying adhesive to intricate die cuts.
To create dimension, I added stripes to each rectangle by adhering the stripes with 3D Foam Squares White Small and Thin 3D Foam Squares.
First I started adhering some stripes with 3D Foam Squares White Small.
Then I used Thin 3D Foam Squares to adhere the remaining stripes. The result was this cool multi-layered background for each card.
Adding the Sentiments
To complete my card set, sentiments were added to them and were kept simple by using the same sentiment on each one.
Each sentiment consists of a 3D “smile” word that I created with the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Simply adhere blue cardstock to a piece of 3D Creative Foam Sheet and die-cut the word three times from it. Then place each word on circles die-cut from white cardstock with “friend” stamped underneath them!
For extra dimension, I adhered the embellished circle die cuts with Crafty Foam Tape. Note: I used several strips to ensure the circles would not warp.
I hope you are inspired to make some 3D cards of your own! I’d love to see them! Be sure to share links to your projects in the Comments section.
