Monochromatic Background with 3-d Effect

I took one of Jennifer McGuire’s techniques and made it look 3-d.

Use craft card stock that is 5 1/4″ tall by 4″ wide and stamp it with a background stamp with a pattern that is consistent. I used Stampin’ Up’s Bitty Blossoms that is retired, but I found several on Ebay.
. Make sure you stamp on the right or left bottom corner with Unicorn White Pigment Ink. Let it dry or heat set it and then take an ink that is darker than the card color, I used Baked Brown Sugar from Stampin’ Up and moved my paper a little bit to the left of where I stamped it the first time. I cut my paper to incorporate about one-third from the top so I had enough room for my sentiment. The sentiment came from Blockhead Stamps and is called Feel Better. It’s an old stamp set and I stamped it in my MISTI. I laid the two pieces on my white card stock that was 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the long side to make sure my inked card stock was cut short enough to incorporate the stamped sentiment and then put fun foam on the back of both the top and bottom sections of my background. I thought it would look better if I used Baked Brown Sugar matching marker to add what looks like a third color on the inked background and it makes it look three-D. I also used a Prismacolor white colored pencil and highlighted the white areas as well. I used matching washi tape on the envelope.
