{Tip/Technique} Add Dimension & Texture

Adding Dimension and Texture to your project adds interest too. Don't hesitate to include ribbon, dimension (with pop dots) or with Honey Pop paper from Inky Antics (a featured manufacturer this month at A Walk Down Memory Lane) or pins, etc. You will love the "WOW" factor!
Here's how to do it:
Create a ribbon tab by folding a 2" piece of ribbon in half and staple it to the project with a Tiny Attacher.
I like to add ribbons as borders (run the ribbon through your Xyron first to make them stick the entire length of the ribbon) or use glue dots or staples (especially on guy themed projects).

Stamp the image on to the Honey Pop paper lining up the arrows on the stamp with those on the paper. Use pointy scissors to fussy cut the stamped image. Fold your A2 size card at 4 3/16 and 4 5/16 creating a gutter in fold of the card. Adhere the honey comb paper along both sides of the fold with the flat edge of the cut out piece in the fold.

"WOW", right?
Here's the card's front:
Dimension was added to the card front by using pop dots (both small and large) to create several layers and by tucking a pin with pennant to the top of the cupcake. Create a sweet cards using dimension for added interest and a great "WOW" factor.
