Forever Wedding Card Tutorial using Adhesive Sheets

One of my favorite adhesives to use on die cuts is Adhesive Sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. For those intricate designs, it is a life-saver and a time-saver! With the etched dies (aka thin wafer dies), it cuts like butah – leaves NO MESS on you & on your dies.

I trimmed a piece of white cardstock that fit my die and then applied Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6″ to the back. Trim the excess adhesive sheet off and run through your manual die cutting machine. Cuts with no problem/no residue and no mess 🙂  They come in three sizes: 4 x 6″, 6 x 12″ and 12 x 12″.

Next I worked on my background, I colored my card base with Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® (Mango, Watermelon and Raspberry). Then blended with a baby wipe to achieve that trendy watercolor look.

While the card base dries, I die cut my sentiment “Forever” with textured gold cardstock and Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6″. Just repeat my earlier step with the background die cuts.

Next I used my test paper (I tested my Gelatos® color combination on a piece of white cardstock) and trimmed to 1.5 x 4.25″ strip. After I edged the strip with Raspberry Gelatos®, I applied adhesive on the back with Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6″.

I wanted to create interest with the sentiment so I colored my looped threaded wire with Pigment Powder Pink (I rubbed the wire with leftover Adhesive Sheet before coloring). Small flowers were layered with Dodz™ Adhesive Dots Medium. All were secured with Dodz™ Adhesive Dots 3D.

Lastly, adhere the sentiment, add touches of purple glitter to the flower center and background.
