Adding diecuts and stickers to your mini’s give impressive results. However if done incorrectly it can seem as though object are floating on your page. Bumping up a diecut or sticker can be easily achieved with a little creativity and imagination. Here is one I did using a diecut train from my Cricut.
The first thing I did was cut multiple layers and stacked them together.
I cut circles for the wheels and layered those as well.
Next I cut strips of paper and used Pearl dot stickers for the accent pieces .
I inked the edges of my train and stamped the wheels with a background stamp using Stazon Glue pad. I then sprinkled burgundy glitter on the wheels. I also glittered the front and top of the train.
I added two buttons to the centers of the wheels
Finally I went digging in my sticker stash and found a cute bear to use as the conductor. Later I will probably add a hat to my bear and a bell to my train, but I just wanted to show how easy it is to embellish a simple diecut.
Here is another example.
