Scrapbook Adhesives & Avery Elle Week


It's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some of the most popular products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L such as their 3D Foam, E-Z Runners, Adhesive Sheets, etc.  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for even more inspiration using both companies products!  Don't forget to comment on the blogs throughout to week to be entered to win a fabulous prize!  Now for my card:)


I surprised myself by not making a shaker, lol!  I haven't used them in a bit, so I took out my Modern Leaves dies  for this one!  Instead of creating leaves, I used the dies to create a glittery butterfly.  I could have used the dies to cut glitter paper, but I wanted to apply the glitter directly to vellum.  Scrapbook Adhesives Adhesive Sheets are the perfect thing for this technique!  They are double sided adhesive sheets (they come in different sizes) and the best thing is that they don't gum up your dies:) 


I die cut 4 leaves and applied them to the vellum sheet.  (I hand cut the antennae)  Once the adhesive die cut was exposed, I sprinkled on some glitter.  I really wanted solid coverage so I went with some fine glitter.  I burnished the glitter a bit with my fingertip, but it was adhered pretty well even without it.  I stamped the sentiment (from Brushed) and I layered the vellum over some ombre paper.  I love the soft look of it all:)

Until next time!  Hope you're having a great week!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
