Sharing some more goodies I bought at the yard sale at my Local stamping store. Someone was selling these diecut pieces you layer together to make a dimensional scene, I think there were 4 or 5 in the package. I decided to give this a try to see how thick they would be after using all the foam tape between each layer and since it was going to be another hand delivered card I knew it didn't matter how thick it was. I can't remember for sure but I think there was at least 5 layers. It ended up being over the 1/4 inch allowance for mailing in a regular envelope, so all the other sets will probably be hand delivered cards also.
To go along with the background of this scene, I decided to use my brick embossing folder and I applied Antique linen distress ink to the folder before embossing to give it a little aged look to the brick.
Here is a side view to get an idea of the dimension these have, and they are really easy to put together.
You really could use less layers if you did want to put one through the mail with regular postage. I also used the Scotch mounting tape, it is thinner than some foam tape made for cards and scrapbooking. They even have the little tags that you can stamp your sentiment on and borders that match the images.

I love that there is always new stuff out there to try in cardmaking.
We did ok through all the rain we had for the past two days, the rain came up to our shed but didn't get inside and the street out front flooded over the curbs but didn't not come up our driveway, so we are very thankful. It's cloudy today but no rain until late this evening so we are going to get out and go for a walk.
Hope your week is going well so far, thanks for stopping by,
