Almost a Case

March 9, 2017

I receive newsletters from an American Demonstrator, Jessica Taylor.  In the newsletter that I received recently she shared a card using the Glimmer Paper which is available Free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.  I loved the idea and used the layout to create my card today.  I added a strip of each of the three colours of Glimmer Paper in the pack, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Bermuda Bay to Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Lift Me Up stamp set across the bottom of the card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut the large detailed balloon from Whisper White card using the Up and Away Thinlits Dies and attached it over the Glimmer Paper.

To decorate the inside I added another three strips of the Glimmer Paper (cut thinner this time).  I stamped the small balloon from the Lift Me Up stamp set onto Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out using the matching Up and Away Thinlits Die.  The balloon is attached over the strips of Glimmer Paper.  (Sale-a-bration is coming to an end and these products are while stocks last, so don’t wait too long to place your order, I wouldn’t want you to miss out on your favourite product.)

I don’t know about you but when I use intricate dies like the detailed balloon die on the front of this card I find it a little difficult to attach them without getting glue all over the front of my card.  Well I came across a couple of ideas on the internet and I am sorry to say I do not know where I saw them now but thank you to a couple of ladies.  The first idea was to add strips of double sided tape to the back of the card that you are going to die cut and once you have cut out the image, you remove the backing paper and it is ready to glue down.  Another idea was to use tape runner all over the back of the card, cover it with the strips of paper that you have left over when you have used your Glue Dots and run it through the machine.  Once again, the image is ready to adhere once your remove the backing paper.  Such clever people.  Anyway I used the double sided tape idea.  It does make your image a little thicker going through the Big Shot but it is so worth not having to add dabs of glue everwhere when you want to adhere your die cut.

I think this is a perfect way to show of this gorgeous paper.  Thank you Jessica for the idea.

Bye for now,
