The Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside technique used on this Grateful card is one of the simplest and most fun ways to use your adhesive beyond layers of paper.

Creating the Dots

Randomly place the Adhesive Dots Medium on a white smooth cardstock panel. Keep the liner on the dots to protect them until you get your desired look.

Have you ever used our Adhesive Dots and Adhesive Lines products? They have a patented dispenser for easy application. View the How to Use Adhesive Dots video below to see how it works.

Next, remove the cover film over the Adhesive Dots that you wanted from the panel to cover them with a single color of Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Nature Colors .

I started with the Cooper Orange and then moved to the Brown and Gold.

Creating the card

Once I was satisfied with the tones and position of the Adhesive Dots, I matted the foiled dotted piece with a cajun craze cardstock. I pasted both layer using theE-Z Runner Grand Permanent Strips.

To add a message or sentiment to my card, I decided to use a die cut sentiment in coordinating colors. First, I die cut the Grateful for You Die, twice onto white smooth and cajun craze cardstock.

I created a card base using white smooth card stock. Additionally, I pasted both pieces in between created a little shadow using the Glue Pen Dual Tip. I also pasted the decorative layer over the card base using the same E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Strips.
