Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a Jeweled Friend Card. Adding jewel stones to a card makes a card so much extra fun doesn’t it? Liquid glue often dissolves the backing foil of the jewel stones. Solving this problem is super easy: use Adhesives Dots!
Wanna join me in making the card?
The Jewel Friend Card Background
Start by adding some green color to the white top card panel. Next use a soft green inkpad and an ink blending tool to create a green banner horizontally over the top card panel. Now stamp upon the two rows.
Adding the Jewel Embellishments
Create a dazzling effect on the Jeweled Friend card adhere lots of square jewel rhinestones to the card. Simply the stones by using Adhesive Dots Micro, Adhesive Dots Mini and Adhesive Dots Ultra Thin.
As mentioned earlier, liquid glue often dissolves the foil backing of the rhinestones and they leave ugly spots. When using Adhesive Dots, you will not have this problem! Simply place the dots on the back, remove the liner and adhere them to the card panel.
Designer’s Tip: I like to use tweezers for precise placement of the rhinestones.
Create the Card Base
Mat the embellished card panel onto a blue card layer with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Next, adhere the layered panel to a white card base again using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
Finishing the Jeweled Friend Card
As a finishing touch, I secured a Hello Friend sticker onto a blue banner. Lastly, adhere the banner onto the card using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
And voilá, your Jeweled Friend Card is ready. Hmm…I liked the card so much I decided to keep it myself and put it on display in my craft room! LOL!
Wishing you happy crafting!
