Do you have foil, glitter, embossing powder and microbeads in your stash? We can show you new uses for them! “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside” uses Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products with different mediums to create great designs. Let me show you how!
For my “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside” project I created a card and embellished it with two different types of adhesive that I “dressed up” with gold glitter.
NOTE: I received products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for use in my projects but the opinions in this post are completely my own.
I began my card by attaching two coordinating patterned papers to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ cardstock mat with an E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
I added a strip of 1/2″ Premium Double-Sided Tape along the seam where the two papers overlapped, peeled off the backing and sprinkled some gold glitter over the top.
I ended up with a crisp glittery stripe that ties my two papers together perfectly.
Next I decided to add a little more glitz to my card with Adhesive Dots Micro.
I placed the adhesive dots randomly in the area around the poinsettias and sprinkled glitter over them.
The result was perfect little glitter circles that look like they were always part of this gorgeous Christmas paper.
NOTE: The adhesive holds the glitter extremely well. I was able to brush the excess glitter off of my card with a paint brush and it didn’t disturb the glitter that was glued to the card at all.
With the background of my card dressed up it was time to add a sentiment. I stamped the “Joy” sentiment in coordinating ink, cut it out with a stitched oval die and attached it to my card with Crafty Foam Tape. I love to add a bit of dimension to my cards by using foam adhesives to raise some of the elements.
Here is my finished card “wearing it’s adhesive on the outside”.
