Hi everyone! Lisa with you today and I’m sharing a beautiful card that I made for my parent’s 53rd anniversary. I absolutely adore making dimensional cards like these. The Adhesive Dots make keeping all my flowers, sequins, and twine in place so super easy!
Note: Dodz are now Adhesive Dots
Making the Anniversary Card
This is a fairly easy card to make but leaves a very BIG impact with the recipient. I wrap mine in tissue paper and add another flower instead of trying to stuff it into an envelope.
The flowers are adhered together with Adhesive Dots and then to the card itself with the Adhesive Dots 3D. All of the sequins are adhered using Adhesive Dots Mini (I looove these!!).
I also used some of the other new products for this card: the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Adhesive to hold down my “Happy Anniversary” panel. And, also, the E-Z® Runner Grand Dispenser for the patterned paper. I use different adhesives for different things. Not all paper is the same and doesn’t require the same adhesive.
For the twine, I doubled it, wrapped it around the side of the card, tied it in a bow, and slid an Adhesive Dots Mini under the bow to secure it, The pearls and sequins are also secured with the Adhesive Dots Minis.
Here are some close-ups!
Look at how much dimension those rolled flowers give!! And the Adhesive Dots hold them right in place. No glue, no messy strings, no drying time and touch-free application…so easy! Love that! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my card. (I gave the card to my parents last weekend and they LOVED it, so I’m super happy!!)

Love your bright,happy card. Thrilled to learn about Dodz-just what I’ve been looking for. I have a thing for metal embellishments and glue that holds is so darn messy. Thank you Lisa for schooling me!
