Dimensional Stamped Image Technique

Hello friends & welcome to another Heartfelt Wednesday inspiration post
I have made a card for today's inspiration.

I find that when the stamped image doesn't standout well on a busy background so I use this simple technique to lift up the stamped image by giving it some dimension.
I use 4 or 5 pieces of cardstock die cut with the same coordinating die that was used to cut the stamped image and stack them up. 

You could do this by simply using foam adhesive behind the image but I think that the stacked die cut method is much better because it serves 2 purpose... It gives the image a solid and sturdy base so the image doesn't warp while mailing and it also looks nice from the sides.
