Hi everyone, Yvonne here. What a year 2020 was…. So I think it’s time for some sparkle & bright start to the new year with a Hello 2021 card. Using the Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside technique, let’s make festive and glittery stripes on the card. Shall we get started?
Let’s Get the Sparkle & Bright On
On a piece of rectangle pink cardstock panel, run the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser gently several times in soft curvey vertical lines. I did different colors so I started with four lines.
With a piece of Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors, we will make the vertical lines sparkly and bright! How? Simply press the foil sheet (with the color side UP) over the adhesive, and rub over with your fingers to transfer the foil. Peel off the foil and done! If there are missed areas, reapply the foil until the adhesive lines are fully covered.
Going for the Gold
For my second set of colors, I ran the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser in different areas of the card panel with the same soft curvey vertical lines.
This time I used fine gold glitter to cover the adhesive lines to achieve a different kind of texture and sparkle. Just sprinkle the glitter over the adhesive lines, press it with your fingertips, and tap off the excess.
Three Times the Charm
Then run the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser for the third time again in vertical lines. The final color is white glitter. Repeat the same steps as the gold glitter.
This easy and fun technique is called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. I encourage you to use this concept to make the most of adhesives from behind the layers to out front as an embellishment!
Adding the Sentiment
First die-cut and emboss the numbers 2021 and the Hello sentiment from gold cardstock. Next, using 3D Foam Strips cut into small pieces to fit the tiny die cut shapes, adhere all to the card front.
Finally, randomly place rhinestones and pearls onto the card using Adhesive Dots Micro.
Designer’s Tip: Use tweezers for precise placement of the pearls and rhinestones.
And voila….your Sparkle & Bright Hello 2021 Card is ready to be sent!
Wishing you a Happy (Sparkle & Bright) 2021 with lots and lots of creative fun!
