Beatrix Potter Dimensional Card

Hi all. Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Today I am going to show you a cute stamp by Beatrix Potter, Jeremy Fisher. Isn't he adorable? 
I love it when I find stamps that can be used for little boys/men. I only have one child and it's a boy!  This cute character has been colored up using Spectrum Noir pens. To add dimension I am going to give you a few tips to make your cards stand out without a lot of cost!
The easiest thing to do is use pop dots to "pop" your image up off of the card base. These can be found in any craft store and even the $1 store. Another is to add layers. I layered the image in front of 3 different die cuts. Now if you don't have a machine to cut out fancy shapes you can graduate squares in different colors or even distress the edges of every other layer.  You imagination is your only limit. The next step is to play with which layers you want to "pop". Add some embellishments and you have a nice dimensional card.  Don't forget to stop back every day for new inspiration from our design team!
