Postage Stamps Collage Card

Hi, Connie here with a fun project using old postage stamps and the Dual Tip Glue Pen. I love that it has the 1/2″ wide brush tip end. Sure came in handy for this collage card project. I used it as a collage medium with a little help from my fingers.

Collage Card Design

A little prep work goes a long way. First, lay the stamps on a 4″x 5″ card front, just to get an idea of how they would look. Once you determine the layout, use the Dual Tip Glue Pen, (1/2″ brush end), as a collage medium. I used my fingers to help smooth out the glue on the stamps.

Once the card fronts were complete, matted them on coordinating cardstock.

This is the order of how the collage cards were assembled:
1. Adhere the black cardstock mat is to the top fold white card base with Crafty Foam Tape Black 108ft.
2. Next, place the white cardstock mat on the black mat using the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser.
3. Then add the postage stamp card front to the white cardstock mat with the Crafty Foam Tape White 108ft.

The embellishments are secured using a combination of Crafty Foam Tape White 108ft, E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, and 3D Foam Strips. Wrap the twine towards the bottom of the card to complete. I used scraps from my scrappy box such as pre-stamped images.
