I wanted to create a beautiful card for my MIL for her birthday next month. I went a different route and went for a flat square card, you do not open it up, but instead it acts like a post card. Using the Die~Namites Dies and Stick It together is perfect, they work so well together!! Stick It are the perfect adhesive sheets for die cuts and electronic cutting machines, they are created by Ken Oliver and they are available in two different sizes, 8"x12-1/4" and 8"6-1/8"for different sized dies. You can even double side them to you can glue glitter to the front!!
I only applied the Stick It adhesive to the back of the doily to glue it to the card, but I applied the Stick It to the front and back of the "Happy Birthday" so I could add glitter!!
First I cut apart a bit of the doily so you can see more when the paper on top is applied, just just makes the circle bigger.
I then applied the "Happy Birthday" to the mat and pulled off the top layer to expose the adhesive and add the glitter.
I did not have the perfect color of glitter for this project, so I mixed all thee colors until I got the color I wanted, a pretty peachy gold!!
Here is a video of how to apply the Stick It and the glitter from Stick It!!
Here are some close up pictures of the card.
