I am super excited to share a very "sticky project" with you. The adhesives are the unsung hero in all of the paper-crafting projects. You need every bit of adhesive and yet they should remain hidden. That is why I call them the "unsung" hero. It's time to highlight these sticky adhesive.
If you arrive from the Altenew Card Blog, are in the right place!
I am using Mistletoe Wreath Stamp & Die Bundle, Mistletoe Wreath Embossing Folder, Double-sided Adhesive Sheets for my example.
For my project, I literally created my own sticker. I wanted the wreath to be 100% pliable. To do that, I took the Double-side Adhesive Sheet and adhered one side to the 80 Lb card-stock.
I then stamped, colored and die cut the wreath like I normally would do on the card-stock. Once I was happy with the wreath, I ran the Clear-embossing Powder all over the wreath and heat set it.
The Clear-embossing Powder helps strengthen the die and adds shine. Next I peeled off the backing paper and I now have a beautiful wreath sticker. Since the background was dry-embossed, it is even more important that DIY Sticker will be perfectly adhered to the card-stock.
The banner sentiment was popped up with the Altenew Instant Foam Tape (another great unsung hero). Thanks to these adhesive, my card remains mail-friendly without the bulk. Love that!

Like the embossing of wreath. Who would think the blue background would work so well.
I love using foam to add dimension to my cards and would love to have the option of a 1mm foam, as well as the standard 2mm foam.
Love the use of embossing to add strength to your wreath.
So inspiring, just found a new way to use my scrap paper
