Mixed Media Round Shaped Card

My project is a mixed media round shaped card. Hi, Lea here and I’m addicted to making round cards! LOL! So today I will share how to create this with a combination of 3D Foam Squares as dimension and how to “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside” with glitter.

Creating my shaped card

The card base is a nice cardboard card which I covered with patterned paper. Note that I trimmed a slightly smaller circle and then distressed its circumference edges. Next I attached it with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in.

Embellishing the card front

I added a pair of floral elements using white acrylic mousse and a stencil. With the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I have adhered scraps of patterned papers, gauze and romantic heart-shaped chipboard.

For handmade embellishments, I drew flowers and leaves and painted them with watercolors. When dried, I fussy cut them. To give various dimension, I either used 3D Foam Squares as is (one layer) or stack two 3D Foam Squares for extra height behind my handmade embellishments.

Another kind of handmade embellishment was to “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside” with gold glitter and 3D Foam Squares Black Regular. Simply take the top liner off and sprinkle with glitter. Then tap excess off and adhere to your project. In addition, I cut them in smaller pieces to create small highlights here and there.

Finally, I added some splashes of white acrylic, squared die cuts and “with Love” sentiment. It’s ready to give!
