I can't resist sheets like this: Easy to cut out and easy to use as blocks for your card. For the first card I chose a cluster of blocks for my base, then found the same patterns on the sheet of paper and cut them out one by one. Mixing between GlueArts Raisen's and U Cut It Foam it gave the card variations on the dimension.

Usually I'd use the glue glider to adhere this block to the card, but because the dimensional front was already in place I opted for the extreme adhesive squares instead.

Finally - block letters allows this technique to be used - cut a long strip of U cut it foam, attach the letters to it then apply the whole title to the card.
