I spent my weekend playing with my Xyron adhesives and some Design Memory Craft Faber-Castell Gelatos at a crop with some friends. Oh my, what fun these are to play with! Take a look at a card I created using a Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds stamp set.
It's a simple card, but I really wanted the bird to take center stage so I left the background white. If you have never tried Gelatos before, don't be intimidated. They are super easy to use. Let me show you ...
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker
Xyron 3/16 Adhesive Dots
Design Memory Craft Faber-Castell Gelatos
Bazzill Smooth White Cardstock
Black Embossing Powder
Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds stamp set
Step 1. Prep your paper by applying a layer of Gesso. When it is dry, stamp your image and or sentiment with Versamark ink. Emboss using a black embossing powder.
I fussy cut this guy out, but you could also color the entire background. Like this...
Step 3. Since I was at a crop, I brought along this handy Xyron 3" Sticker Maker. I love that I can still take my Xyron adhesives with me and pack light. I just popped my bird through.
Step 4. I stamped a sentiment on a plain white cardbase with StazOn Ink and adhered my bird next to it.
Step 5. Tie some twine around the top of the card. You can make sure the bow stays put with a little Xyron adhesive dot.
I just love how this card turned out.
