Doggy Card with Shadowing Technique

For this project, we will incorporate a new technique – what I call “shadowing”. In the image, you’ll notice the black cardstock behind the dogs on this card. It serves to differentiate them from the background and adds some dimension. In reality, you can use ANY image that you can print. These dogs were on some paper I had which was not cardstock. By adding the black “shadow” cardstock behind the images, it adds some thickness to them, as well. I have even found images on cereal boxes that could be used when mounted on black cardstock… the possibilities are endless!! (Now, doesn’t that sound noble). For more info on this cute doggy card, keep reading.

Supplies Needed: 

*Polka Dot cardstock (for base of card)

*Glittery cardstock

*Paw Print cardstock

*Images of dogs (can be printed)

*Black cardstock

*Glue runner

*Fiskars Paper Trimmer

*Scissors

*Foam squares


Instructions:

*Step One – Cut polka dot card base to desired size. Glue on paw print background and then glue on glittery strips.

*Step Two – Glue your doggy images to a separate sheet of black cardstock and cut an outline of black cardstock around the images. Cut the black cardstock shadow border to your liking.

*Step Three – Using your Pop Dots, place the dogs on the card. The Pop Dots will add dimension and make the dogs stand up off of the card. Fun, huh?!


Tips/Ideas: 

~ You may substitute double-sided foam tape for the Pop Dots.

~ Instead of black cardstock, use a coordinating color of cardstock for the shadowing.
