Add Some *Pop* to Your Clean & Simple Cards with This Week’s MFTv

Maintaining a low profile on cards intended for mailing can be vital in ensuring your hard work arrives intact. Lean and mean can have an abundance of interest and dimension though by integrating a few simple tricks!

There are several ways that Stephanie imparted extra dimension to her mostly-flat design. Some selective stamping and thin foam adhesive pack a punch in providing bonus personality to sweet Piggy Pebbles. Layering the sentiment strip create the illusion of a shadow with little added bulk while a smattering of clear drops adds shine and dimension while reinforcing the rainy-day theme.
