Subtle Glittery Stripes

Start by taking an Adhesive Sheet and cutting it into strips. Place the strips onto a piece of patterned paper. Be sure to firmly burnish the adhesive onto the paper with your finger or a bone folder. Then remove the backing paper.

Set the paper panel on a piece of scratch paper. Dump glitter over the top of it. You could use any kind of glitter, but I prefer to use a fine glitter. I think it takes to the adhesive the best! Shake off the excess. This technique is called “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.”

Finishing Up

Adhere the panel to a card. Add some additional pieces of patterned papers to it.

Then affix a couple stamped images to it. I like to use the 3D Foam Squares White Small Size to do this. Most of my stamped images are usually cut from white cardstock so I prefer to use the white foam squares ones over the black ones. Also, I love the pop the foam gives the images. It really helps make them stand out against patterned paper!

Now you are going to create the sentiment. Adhere cardstock to one of the foam sheets included in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Set the “sunshine” die onto it and run it through a manual die-cutting machine! You’ll end up with a 3D sticker like this!

Adhere the sticker on your card. Finish the sentiment by stamping “hello”  on a strip of cardstock and adhere it above the “sunshine” word.
