Invisible Dimensions... You Amaze Me!

Okay, so I don't know what this technique is actually called, but invisible dimensions seems to fit. And I'm obsessed with it!!! I see so much potential, with various words, shapes and backgrounds. For this one, I wanted to use all 5 retiring In Colors together for one last blast, and I think it's my favourite card with the whole colour suite I've done yet. I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set for the background and the Crazy About You/Hello You bundle for the sentiment. This technique is done by stamping the background first, (minus the AMAZE ME, for placement purposes). Then die cut the YOU, exactly where you want it to be. Cut the same die out twice more on thicker-than-cardstock paper, (I used the support backing that comes in a pack of Stampin' Up's DSP), to make the equivalent of a chipboard. Carefully glue the layers together with Tombo Multi-purpose glue (the green top), and then glue the word into place, followed by tiny inside bits, to fill the holes back in and complete the image. Pretty cool, huh? Anyway, this is my second card as a Design Team member for Creative Moments, and I really hope you join our Spring/Easter Challenge :)
