Mosaic Card Using 3D Foam Squares and Circles

Welcome back crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a fun little card to share. This card is a great way to Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside by making a mosaic using 3D Foam Squares and 3D Foam Circles.

This card lets you play with texture, dimension and sparkly fun all in one project. Here are all the details:

Making the Mosaic Card Basics

First I create my cardstock layers. The card base is 8.5 x 5.5-inch and folded in half. Then the next white cardstock layer is 4 x 5.25-inch. I use dies to cut the white cardstock circle and the black cardstock scalloped circle.

Stamp the sentiment onto the white cardstock circle using black ink. Use the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser to adhere the cardstock circles together.

Then add Creative Photo Corners Black to the white cardstock layer and adhere that layer to the card base using Crafty Foam Tape.

Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside

Next, start the card design with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black by placing them around the circle on the card panel. Add silver foil to them from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Simply remove the top liner, place the foil with the colored side UP, gently rub and remove the foil. No machine or heat needed!

Add large 3D Foam Circles Black to the design and add green foil in the same process as above.

When adding sequins to any project, my go-to adhesive is the Adhesive Dots Micro.

Then add the final elements, small size 3D Foam Circles, and apply the blue foil.

The final accents are enamel dots, placed in and around the foiled 3D Foam and sequins.

The different adhesive shapes and sizes along with the sparkle of foil create a stunning background pattern. This is an easy and fun way to Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside.
