3D effect (Borders and Layered Shapes)

3D effect is one technology that can used in both Traditional and digital Scrapbooking. In traditional scrapbooking this effect is produced by layering forms from punch’s or embellishment. To create the same effect in digital Scrapbooking in our Storybook Creator, it is as simple as using the shadow option and you get a 3D effect.

In traditional scrapbooking the possibilities are endless with hundreds of punch’s and tools that exists to help you create a 3D effect. It can be as easy as stacking a circle on a square, a heart on a circle, or simply use paper embellishments and stacking them one on top of the other.

If you’re looking to make a cool and simple border, it can be as simple as layering pieces of cardstock. It’s quick and it also helps you recycling your scraps. By alternating colours, you can make an amazing effect as well. You can also see your new Border system to inspire you. To make a simple border, simply use a rectangle piece to paper and add one of our border chain designs and add a little bit of embellishment and voila, a beautiful layered border. To complete your pages, you can easily complement your border with a title border in the same pattern or simply use the punched layered patent to finish decorating. You can use embellishments on it or leave it as is.

One shape I absolutely love using is the half rounded square – you punch a square using your square punch and round the 2 opposite corners with your corner maker. You can also use the 8×8 coloured sheets or cardstock in your 12×12 layout; it makes a great photo frame as well or use the Trimmers to make any size square you need. This shape is simple and can be quite beautiful. It can be used as a petal in a flower type design – try alternating the colours, 2 of one colour in opposite corners and 2 Red in the 2 others… a leaf on a stem… and add a simple circle in the middle. Let the shape inspire you and the possibilities are endless.

Happy scrapping!!
