A Merry Little Christmas Week - Day 3

October 24, 2018

Hello friends,

Katie here with a quick tip to share with you today to add a little dimension behind even the most intricate shapes and dies.

I wanted to add some dimension to the outside layer of the Let It Snow Elle-ments die, but all those snowflake openings would be challenging to work around with straight strips of foam tape. The solution comes from that staple of kid crafting- Fun Foam! Adhesive backed foam sheets can be found in the kid's activities area of craft stores or online. 

I die cut the Let It Snow Elle-ments dies from a piece of pink adhesive-backed fun foam.  I used some Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the glitter die cut to the non-adhesive side of the fun foam.  Using liquid glue allowed me to shift and alight the die cuts so that they stacked and aligned perfectly.

I created the scene inside the snow globe using the adorable critters and sentiment from Merry Little Christmas.  I blended an inky background with Distress Oxide inks and stamped the sentiment with black ink. I removed the adhesive backing and affixed the foam backed frame to the note card.  Inside the frame, I added the mouse, deer, gift on top of the glittery oval die-cut and snow flakes from the Let It Snow Elle-ments die. The pink fun foam also adds a pretty pink accent when viewing the card from an angle. 


Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  

Have a wonderful day!
