3D delights



It's an eye popping 3D kind of day here at Pile It On! And while we do have a cute sponsor this week, I actually had this card already made up - I did it for a call to Papercrafts magazine, which sadly (sigh) was not accepted. Must keep reminding myself that a ton of super crafty people also applied, but man is it hard to get published!
This card (after a lot of fiddling around and re-dos) turned out exactly like I planned - the rose is popped up over 3 levels (look close!) and looks so elegant. Then I used some seam binding ribbon, dyed it green and added a sentiment for a simple, CAS card. Love it.

This is really gorgeous. I'm amazed how you can make a card stand out with basically a black pen, a bit of ribbon and a simple stamp...

What a beautiful card...classy and simply elegant (and on kraft to boot!). The touch of ribbon is a perfect embellishment. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Kathy
