I enjoyed the Aspen Unmounted Stamps so much that I decided to make more cards with a little dimension.

Easy steps to create the dimensional trees card with the UM Greeting sheet:

1. Stamp the birch tree image six times onto white paper with India Black ink. Sponge ink over three of the stamped trees. Trim trunks from the white trees.


2. Trim the colored trees and attach to a White card base. Adhere the white tree trunks with foam adhesive. Punch a 1" circle, sponge with Topaz ink, and adhere behind the third image.



For the card below, I added foam squares behind the leaves.



I created the dimensional cards below for the Aspen Scrap Rap at the beginning of the month. Check out the dimensional images here, too!
