Hi friends! Friday's here! This week actually flew by for me. I really have no idea where the days went. Today I'm actually giving my first little presentation at work, so I'm nervous and excited for that - hoping it goes well! :) After that, I plan on lots of time at the craft desk this weekend.
Today I'm sharing another card I made with a congrats theme (can you tell I'm sharing the cards that didn't make the Gallery Idol open auditions? Haha). I had a weight-loss idea in mind when creating it, but it really could be for any girly occasion where you'd want to congratulate a friend or family member.
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Hambly Screen Prints
Chipboard: Cosmo Cricket
Die cut: Spellbinders
Buttons: Papertrey Ink
Scalloped scissors: craft store
I used a Hambly Screen Prints transparency on this card (gotta love those) and for the longest time I could not figure out how to adhere a clear transparency without creating a glue disaster. I tried liquid, glue dots, tape runner and nothing did what I needed it to. So I broke out the serious stuff - spray adhesive. It really does the trick and while it may not be perfect every time, it at least gives the transparency a uniform look without any sloppy mess. My only words of advice: spray it in a fairly ventilated area and do it over a trash can or cardboard box where you won't get anything sticky that you didn't want to. Also, as soon as you lay the sprayed piece down, it's down for good, so choose wisely. Yay for spray! Okay perhaps a cheer is a little overkill, but I truly love this stuff.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
