Hello friends! Welcome to Card #3 of the Card Making Tutorials For Beginners series.
The third card in this series is another simple yet beautiful card that continues to build on the other videos in the series so far. In this tutorial, I show you a few different ways to introduce dimension into your cards. The added dimension is a great way to step up your card while still keeping it simple, fast and easy.
Before I walk you through how to make this card, here’s a quick peek at the Field of Flowers stamp set.
Stampin’ Up! | Field of Flowers Stamp Set
For this card, I used four images from this stamp set. I used the large stem image, the two “puffy” flowers, the dragonfly and the greeting “in my heart.”
How To Make the ‘In My Heart’ Card
I have put together a video tutorial so that you can follow along with me as I make this card. This video tutorial was filmed in real-time, and I talk you through every single step I take, and why.
The only thing I don’t go over in the video is how to create your card base. And that’s because I already have a blog post on the basic card folds here.

Notes From The Video
As I’ve mentioned before, the videos in the Card Making for Beginners series all build one on the other. In this video, something new is that you’ll see me share two different ways of adding dimension to your cards. Unlike card #1 and card #2, which are one layer cards, this card is a 2-layer card.
The first is to add dimension to your images, by fussy cutting one or more elements from your stamped image, and then attaching them to the card with dimensional foam (Stampin’ Dimensionals).
The second way is to add dimension to your card panel.
Supply List For The “In My Heart” Card
Below I have put together a supply list of all the products I used to create this card. Each product has a link to where you can buy it (see my link policy in the disclaimer section of the sidebar).
