Hello everyone! Today, I’m sharing a card with a patterned glittery band that I created with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1ʺ, glitter and a stencil. I love how well the pattern shows!
A word of caution if you try this technique. Use a heavy plastic stencil. Avoid any patterns with fine stencil cuts as they may not remove easily from the Premium Double-Sided Tape and could be damaged. I didn’t have any trouble with this stencil by peeling it slowly from the tape.
To make the glitter band, I started with a strip of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1ʺ applied to sage cardstock. Along each side I added Premium Double-Sided Tape ¼ʺ about ⅛ʺ from 1ʺ tape. Then I trimmed the cardstock close to tape and 5½ʺ long.
Remove the backing from Premium Double-Sided Tape 1ʺ and center the stencil over it. I covered it with brown glitter, pressed it into the tape and then removed excess.
Next I carefully removed the stencil.
Sprinkle turquoise glitter over it, press it into the tape and remove excess.
To make the pattern on the narrow tapes, I used the center of the stencil pattern. I used the same glitter process to apply brown glitter through stencil, remove stencil and apply turquoise glitter on each tape strip.
My card is 4¼ x 5½ʺ. I made a score line along the bottom edge on the inside of the card. I fastened a narrow strip of sage cardstock along lower edge with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
Then I fastened the glitter band with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
I applied Premium Double-Sided Tape 1ʺ to back of sage cardstock. I die cut the greeting, removed the tape backing and fastened it to the card.
Add 3 score lines on each side of the greeting. These were scored from inside of card to make ridges on card front.
I hope I’ve inspired you today! Thanks for visiting!
