I took pictures of the process as I made my card so that you could see how it was done.
Here is the finished product - where I layered the top of the outfit twice, and the pants once. I then added another layer of the cuffs and pockets .
First, I stamped my image by Lockhart Stamps 3 times on vanilla card stock.
Then I colored in all three images with my Stampin Up Sage Shadow marker.
Next, I cut out 2 of my images, separating the top and bottom of the outfit. You can see my small detail scissors that I used. I highly recommend getting small scissors for cutting out small items. It is much easier to cut around the small angles and pieces with them. Note: When I was done - I decided to add a top layer of pockets - so I stamped my outfit another time on a piece of vanilla cs and colored it in and cut out the pockets.
Here you can see that I cut the cuffs off one pair of pants and put the dimensional foam pieces on the back of two tops, one pair of pants and one set of cuffs. I didn't use the other piece of pants. Then I removed the backings on the dimensionals (I use Stampin Up Dimensionals - I find them to be the best) and attached them over the first stamping.
You can see all my layers here on this side view. This is when I decided it would look better to add another layer of pockets.
Here it is finished - with all the layers of designer paper and card stock. I punched the corners of the image and panel with my corner punch. I also doodled the edges of the image as well as the card, added the ribbon and heated it with my hot gun to curl it.
The instructions for the challenge said that this is easy - it just requires patience and good cutting skills - and they were right. But the outcome is well worth the effort - don't you think? I love the look of this dimensional card and I'm sure that I'll try it with other images. And each time I try it - I'll get better at cutting out the small pieces!
Thanks so much for coming by to see my card - have a great night and see you tomorrow!
