Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Cardmaker Magizine Blog Hop and Giveaway

I'm excited to share a fun "Sparkly" Christmas Card with you today using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesives. "Wear your Adhesive on the Outside".

Welcome to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® + CardMaker® Magazine Blog Hop and Giveaway! Today's theme is “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside”, which means using various Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products with different mediums to customize your projects. I'm using Foam Squares and a stencil to show you how to make a sparkly background for your card.

I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® as a design team member for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.

Here are some of the different Adhesives I used in different ways, while creating this card.
My Stick Permanent strips -I used as my general adhesive to assemble the card.
Easy Runner Micro - This was used as a very thin line of adhesive around the outside edge of the main image to add a think strip of glitter.
Thin 3D Foam Squares- These thin foam squares are what I used to create my background, using a stencil as a grid.
Crafty Foam Tape White - The foam tape was used to lift my matted piece up to be adhered to the base piece.

Here is how I created this background using the Thin 3D Foam Squares and glitter.

1. Using a stencil is a great way to create a pattern for foam squares.  I used this fun Polk-a-dot stencil from Tammy Tutterow Designs as a pattern/grid for my foam squares.

2.You can see in step 2, how I only applied the foam squares around the outer edge, as that is all that will be seen. 

3.  Once the foam square are all in place. lift off the thin piece on the tops to expose the adhesive.  You and then sprinkle them off with fine glitter.  Tapping off any excess.

4. As you assemble the card, add a couple of pieces of  Foam tape to support the middle of the card before adding the matted layers.

I love holiday cards that make me laugh! The special positioning of the foam squares are an inspired idea, but the use of the foam tape to pop up the punch line is adorable! Nice job!
