Hi, everyone! Do you like to stamp? I stamped a sweet sentiment, “Sending you Smiles Across the Miles” and embellished the card with 3D Foam Shapes. With a variety of 3D Foam Shapes available, they are the perfect accent for adding a little something fun such as flock to different paper crafted projects.
This card was easy to make! Here’s how you can make one like it.
Setting Up for the Flock and 3D Foam Shape
Start by cutting several strips of white cardstock and sponging ink onto each one. I wanted to make a rainbow card so I used red, pink, orange, yellow and green inks. You may want to use a different color combination than me.
Set the paper strips on scratch paper. Worried about them moving around? To keep them from shifting as you stamp, try using the E-Z Dots Repositionable Refillable Dispenser to put a little temporary adhesive under them. This allows you to lift and move the papers without damage. It holds strong until you decide to remove it.
Stamp an image onto the cardstock strips with black ink and then adhere the cardstock strips to a card base.
Create a sentiment panel for your card by cutting a strip of cardstock and stamping a phrase onto it. Place two strips of Crafty Foam Tape on the back of a panel and add a small scrap of thread to it. Adhere the panel onto the card.
Embellishing with 3D Foam Shapes
Now, it’s time for the fun stuff! You are going to add a few 3D Foam Shapes to your card. For this card, I used 3D Foam Butterflies since they compliment the flower so well.
You can embellish the shapes with Metallic Transfer Foil, glitter and more. I chose to add a layer of white flock to the top of each butterfly. I love the soft look the flock adds.
For this second card, I created a sweet little stamped scene of animals. Rather than butterflies, I added some 3D Foam Hearts to the design.
Once again, I added white flock to the 3D Foam shapes.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to see how you are using the 3D Foam Shapes on your cards and scrapbook pages!
