This fun Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside technique is so fun and adds a ton of pizazz and pop to cards.
Making the Birthday Stars
Start by adhering several strips of patterned paper to a piece of cardstock. Place several foam shapes on top. I used 3D stars, but any open foam shape will work.
Burnish flock onto the shapes. Rub a piece of wax paper along the shapes to help burnish it down. Cut the shapes out with your scissors and set them aside.
Texture the Frame
Create a frame by adhering a 3D Foam Frame to patterned paper and cutting it out. Cover it with the flock. I recommend using a paint brush to sweep away any stray flock after you’ve burnished the flock to the frame.
Assembling the Card
Adhere a panel of patterned paper onto a top-folded card. Add your frame and the stars. Use Crafty Foam Tape to affix the largest element to the card.
Embellish your frame with a couple of Creative Photo Corners and sequins. Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock and adhere it to the card. Be sure to put foam strips on it, separating where it will overlap your foam shapes.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to add some texture to your next card or scrapbook page just like my Happy Birthday Stars Card!
