Today, Steph Ackerman shares a card created with Xyron's Sticker Maker and Glue Stick:
Good morning, Steph here and I wanted to share this quick and easy card today. It's easy to create stunning cards when using Globecraft Memories products and Xyron adhesive.
Starting with black cardstock, I cut it to a 4 1/2" square to fit my 5" card base. I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink, added Mermaid Tears and then heat set. I love the shimmery look I was able to achieve.
I stamped, colored, and die cut the rose. Before adhering it to the card, I added a light coat of Glastique which gave the rose a nice dimensional effect and since I used a light coat, it dried fairly quickly. I used Xyron adhesive to adhere the rose to the card. Xyron adhesive, while permanent, does allow you some time to reposition your items. I was able to move the rose several times until I was happy with it's final spot on the card.
To emphasize the sentiment, I scored 1/2" around the panel. Finally, I just wanted a hint of color around the card so I swiped embossing ink around the edges, added Mermaid Tears and heat set. Using the Xyron Glue Stick I adhered the black panel to the card base.
