Today marks the first of five days of bonding stamps and sticky stuff! It’s going to be a fun and inspiring event that runs November 25th through December 1st, and I’m part of today’s showcase of stunning creations to share with you while you hop!
On my card, I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s 3D Foam Squares – White Mix to create some dimension, and here’s a little peek at the layers from the side:
I used some of the larger foam squares to adhere the plate to the card front, and the smaller foam squares to stick the gingerbread man to the plate. I LOVE how these squares are separated from each other on the backing sheets…they are ready to go!
I’ll share a little secret with you…I am a foam square addict!!! I use foam tape or squares on many of my cards.
Sometimes I want to add support to a section, but it’s too small for a big square, so I cut them in half or into thirds before I stick them down on my project. It works great for a different shape, like the arms on the gingerbread man. With a strip of a larger foam square, the whole arm is supported instead of a part of it!
Here’s a picture of my card from the front! The image and sentiment are from SOG’s “Gingerbread Kaylee” clear stamp set! I made the plate by layering two punched circles, and drew in some crumbs with a matching pen. I used a scallop circle punch to make the “bite” in the gingerbread man’s leg.
Be sure to make your way around to both blogs each day this week. You have until Sunday, December 1st at midnight EST to squeeze in all your commenting – we’ll be announcing the two lucky winners on the SOG blog on Monday, December 2nd!
