Card Size:  5.5" x 5.5"
It's almost Valentine's Day, but I thought I would switch up the sentiment so that I could use my card for a wedding.  It's been a while since I used dimensional flowers so it was fun creating this card. I added a piece of silver cardstock as a mat behind the red cardstock.

I like dimension on my cards but it's difficult to cut already small foam squares into teeny tiny foam squares.  So I started using craft foam!!  At first I bought the foam to use behind larger solid areas, but I saw a few people using it behind more intricate die cuts so I thought this would be a great chance to try it and show you the results.  I have a photo below of the craft foam.


Even this close up it's hard to see that the craft foam is even there!

Here's the piece of foam I used, it doesn't matter if it's got a design on it (the local dollar store was clearing out of foam that had designs on it), I just make sure to cut it so that the design goes against the card front, not my die cut.  I have Tombow diamond dot adhesive to adhere the cardstock to the foam.
