When I posted THIS card on my blog, I got several questions asking how I got the patterned paper behind my image, so I decided to walk you through the steps.
I made this card using the There She Goes Clear Stamps "When I Grow Up" stamp set.
Here's how I did it:
I colored the image and chose an oval die to cut out the image.
Using that same die, cut out another oval from the patterned paper you want behind the image. In this case, I wanted it to look like wall paper.
Now I cut out my image from the foreground upwards.
I know I want to add a base board so I used that same oval die to cut out another oval from white cardstock.
I laid the image over the white oval and marked where I wanted the baseboard to be.
Next I cut the white oval just below my pencil mark.
I adhered that piece onto the oval I cut from the patterned paper.
Then I adhered my image on top of that
I used the MFT Die-namics Circle STAX dies so I then die cut another slightly larger oval onto which I adhered the image panel.
