Adhering Intricate Die Cuts on a Birthday Card

How do you adhere your intricate die cuts on your projects? Try using our Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch. You won’t go back to anything else!

Today, I’m thinking spring with a Happy Birthday Card in soft aqua/mint color.  I used Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch, E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium to make it all work.

How to Adhere Intricate Die Cuts on a Happy Birthday Card by Judy Hayes for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

The Intricate Details

Create a 4.5 x 6.25 inches card base from cardstock. The dot-patterned panel was fastened to the card front with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Die-cut a lace border from taffy cardstock and fastened to a piece of aquamarine cardstock with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.  A strip of Taffy cardstock is fastened to back top edge using  E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Next, place a piece of taffy cardstock band to fit over the aquamarine piece.

Apply Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch on the back of the taffy cardstock. For accents, die-cut the leaf die three times.

Here’s a quick video on How to use Adhesive Sheets for Die-Cutting and More, view below.

Fasten the three die cuts over the Taffy cardstock band by simply removing backing and pressing in place.  Trim excess off along the edges.

Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch was applied to the back of aqua and aquamarine cardstock.

Use both cardstock pieces to die-cut Happy Birthday as the sentiment.

To create a shadow effect, layer the lighter one on top of the darker die cut by removing the backing to adhere together. Fasten the layered sentiment over leaf band.

Place one leaf branch die cut to the card front.  The Happy Birthday band was fastened over branch using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.

Finally, a bow of seam binding was fastened with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium
