Step it up can mean different things to different people when it comes to paper crafting. It could mean elements are stepped up by adding some dimension or added techniques, fun folds and/or elements to step up the skill level of the project. For today’s stepped up project, I decided to focus on the Casual paper crafter.
Overall the project is fairly simple, so any crafter could create this one with limited supplies, but I added an embossed sentiment and popped the laser cut layer up on foam adhesive strips to add a bit more dimension and introduce one of my favorite techniques…heat embossing. This is a simple technique that creates such a fabulous WOW factor to any project!
The Dandy Laser-Cut Paper allows you to easily create unforgettable scenes of nature with the fine, detailed, laser-cut images. You’ll love the elegance you can add to your projects.
I layered the laser cut paper over the top of one of the nature inspired prints in the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP). Immerse yourself in nature with the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. You’ll see dragonflies, bees, foliage, and more–all guaranteed to bring a natural look to your projects. This papercrafting staple is great scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more!
I think the extra details with the gingham ribbon and ladybug trinket add a special touch to this simple project.
- 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (folded in half) Thick Basic White cardstock
- 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP
- (2) 3-1/2″ x 5″ Vellum
- (2) Laser Cut Paper for layers
- 3-1/8″ x 1-1/8″ Basic Black cardstock for sentiment
- 2″ x 5-1/4″ DSP (inside)
I hope this gave you a little creative inspiration.
