Hello my crafty friends and welcome to today’s blog. Although it’s early, I thought I would get a jump on a holiday card like this fun and adorable Tis the Sea-son Card. Using the Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside technique, I will show you how I used the 3D Foam Creative Sheet and glitter to make this sparkle!
Tis the Sea-son Card Step Outs
A and B: Die-cut three of the Inside Scallop Rectangle Stacklet dies with a sheet of 3D Foam Creative Sheet in White from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. This creates a solid foam rectangle and two foam frames (set aside the smaller foam frame for another day).
C and D: Peel off the liner of one side of the large foam frame and sprinkle the green micro-fine glitter over the exposed foam adhesive. Tap off the excess glitter and set the frame aside.
E: Repeat the process with the solid rectangular foam die cut as above.
F: Stamped out the images onto the Premium Marker Paper with Cream ink. Color them with Copic alcohol markers to create a no-line coloring look. Then die-cut each image from its coordinating die.
G and H: Peel off the backing from the large foam rectangle frame and center it to a 4 x 5 1/4-inch piece of Cool Pool cardstock. Note to keep the narrow side of the frame on the left side. Peel off the backing from the solid foam rectangle and position it toward the lower left side by that narrow side of the frame. Fill in the open space between the frame and the solid rectangle with glaze and set it aside to dry.
I: Position the seaweed Christmas Tree first and then add the rest of the seaweed, rocks, fish, and jellyfish to the card front. Make sure to leave the top left clear for the sentiment.
Assembling the Sea-son Card Front
J: Stamp the ’tis the season to be jelly sentiment on to vellum with watermark in, and heat set it with black embossing powder. Fussy cut the banner and attached it to the upper left of the card panel.
K, L, and M: Apply three strips of the Crafty Foam Tape White 54ft to the back of the card panel, and center it on a white A2-size (5.5 x 4.25-inch) card base to complete the card.
I think these fun glittered frames add just the right amount of Christmas bling. As I continued to handle the card, I notice there was NO glitter rubbing off. Yay! No glitter except where you want it!!
With this Tis the Sea-son Card, I hope to inspire you to start your holiday cards EARLY! Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed learning an easy way to add some bling to your cards and creations!
