Terrific Tuesday!

Terrific, Tremendous....it's Tuesday!  There is a lot to celebrate today.....but let's start off with today's card....

No....that's not it.

But it's the beginning of a card.  

I had a card idea in my head with this stamp - Wonderful Wreath.  But once I stamped it (in Always Artichoke), I remembered that I always feel like it's so "flat".  

No offense Wonderful Wreath.  You just don't have a lot of dimension.  I like dimension.

So, I was off to solve that:




Isn't that a TON better?  I simply stamped the wreath again on another piece of Whisper White using Old Olive.  Then I used my exacto knife to cut out the center and to cut some of the leaves, lifting them a bit.  

MUCH BETTER!

Plus the darker Artichoke color underneath adds some more depth, I even offset the wreath a bit and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

A word of Note: you do need to be careful when cutting the leaves, you don't want to cut two leaves and accidently cut one completely out.  If you try this, you'll understand what I mean when you start cutting.

Here's the finished card:  


I did spritz some Smooch Spritz over the card when I was done for a bit of sparkle.  

What do YOU think - isn't it much better than a flat wreath?
I'd love to hear your thoughts - be sure to leave me a comment at the bottom of this post.
