You’re a Gem Card using Crafty Power Tape to Create a Background


Hello, AJ here with card I copied myself on.  🙂  One of my favorite things to do is to create my own background, and it’s so incredibly easy with Crafty Power Tape!

You're a Gem card by AJ OttoYou can see my Gold Foil card that I use as an inspiration starting point.  Basic same idea, with a few less stripes, and whole lot more open space.

AJOtto-youreagem-2To start, lay your Crafty Power Tape down, butting each piece up to the next.


Remove the backing, and press down your product of choice- glitter, foil, here I am using Zoom Creative Sheets. AJOtto-youreagem-4I then want to add another stripe going across in a different direction.  AJOtto-youreagem-5I then stamped my image and sentiment, and am popping it up with 3D Foam Squares.AJOtto-youreagem-6Here’s an angled shot where you can see the Wink of Stella Glitter, I just love how it adds just the right amount of sparkle!
