Blog Hop: Day 1 with Elizabeth
We’re hopping this week, blog hopping that is, with the talented folks at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Join us for Christmas inspiration and giveaways!
Today Elizabeth shares how she used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares to create her Penny Black chipboard-esque elements and add elevated dimension to this modern “collage-style” holiday greeting.
Using an Adhesive Transfer Sheet allowed Elizabeth to create a crushed velvet flocked snowflake with our Crystal Trio Creative Die. Don’t these remind you of warm, soft wool mittens on a crisp winter’s day?
To give her elements from Joy Filled and Picture This an extra thick chipboard feel, Elizabeth stamped and die cut several of the same designs and then layered them atop one another with E-Z Dots Permanent Adhesive.
Extra depth and dimension was achieved when the finished Penny Black elements were layered with 3D Foam Squares. The two thicknesses offered by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L gave the design varied height throughout the card.
Even though you can’t see them, the thin 3D Foam Squares give this decorated panel, dry embossed with our Dotlets stencil, a slight bit of elevation from the card base too.
And don’t miss all the extra little details for making the crushed velvet snowflake sparkle and using our new Oh Christmas Tree Slapstick/Cling stamp to make fancy background designs on small die cut elements.
