I had fun making lots of cards this past weekend in Diana's class - I love everything about this card....The paper (Love Letters designer series, cherry cobbler cardstock), the pearls on the greeting, the soft shading on the edges, the top note diecut that the polka dot background is cut out of.
And especially love the 3-D dimensional effect - used the pop up dimensionals spots under the greeting and the Eiffel Tower. Two towers were stamped and one was cut out and adhered on top of the other tower on the oval shape using the pop up dots.
And can you see how the is an opening cut out in the middle of the tower? Just these 3 simple things really made the card over the top!! Or should I say, at the top?! lol
Here is a closeup of the 3-D effect of the tower- this technique was easy to do and really neat looking! I will have to try it with some other stamps - I think either a guy or gal would appreciate a 3-D card. In fact, I am giving this card to a guy and some of the people who signed the card commented that it was too nice to throw away - and it was a guy who said this! Now that's a real compliment, don't you think?
Thanks Diana, for showing us how to do it!
