More Dimension

Recently, Tiffany of IHeartArt and I were trying to give each other a little help on how to be better card makers.  I really like and respect Tiffany as a person and as a friend so it was easy to trust her and I knew that nothing she said would be mean or hurtful.

In this card, I'm trying to tackle a couple of the issues that Tiffany and I talked about.  I'm always saying how much I like texture and dimension in other people's cards.  I think it's because those are things I am lacking in my own cards.  So, here's my shot at trying to get a little better.

I popped the tree up on some Pop Dots.  Though I HATE the way the card looks from the side, since Pop Dots are really thick, the front of the card is pretty.  I used the dew drops for more dimension.  And for texture, I used this AMAZING Amy Butler paper that my good friend Jenny Bunny kindly gave to me.  

This is for Laura's Sketch 8 over at 2 Sketches 4 You.  


  1. You got the eco chic!!!!!! I love this card! That paper is perfect for the tree image! Thank you for trusting me :) We're stamp twins---that's what I'm here for! Talk to you later!

  2. I love this card and the sentiment too! Tooo cute:)

  3. beautiful card Ashley - love the papers and how you have popped the tree

  4. Ashley you did an INCREDIBLE job!
    Love this card -- the tree does POP and I love those little dew drops. I need to get some of those!


  5. Oh, hey, we use the same paper...great minds right? Beautiful card, I love the dew drops.

  6. Totally love that tree and sentiment! That paper is great with this!!

    I love the shadow that pop up dots give, and it seems I cannot make a card without some kind of ribbon on it lately! I've found that distressing edges and embossing adds a lot of dimension too and pretty quickly and inexpensively (some of those embellishments get pricey!)

    hugs, Jami

  7. Lovely card, great colours and I love the little jewels.
