Hi everyone! It’s Taylor here today, to host this week’s 3D challenge. This week I’m challenging you to create a card (or altered project, since this is the 3D challenge!) that has not just dimension, but depth! Think about the paper tole technique – basically, you stamp several of the same image, fussy cut, and shape the layers to help them take on a realistic form. Sounds complicated, but it can be as easy as you want it to be!
I used foam tape in different heights to adhere my petals, and even glued some edges directly to the “base image” (popping up the opposite side, so it gave the impression the petals were coming from underneath. Here’s a look at how I made the whole card:
So, this week I’m challenging you to create a paper 3D element on your project, that has some shape and dimension! Don’t just pop it up on foam tape…use our bone folder or water spritzer to give it some shape, too! Use the keyword 3D187 when you upload to the gallery. And have fun!
