Day 2 3L & PHP Blog Hop Project Free Cut File

Hello crafty friends,
Welcome to my day 2 post for the week long Blog Co-Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Paper House Productions.  I wanted to share projects all week even though I am only sharing two “official” projects for the hop.
Here is my project for today!
3L Scrapbook Adhesive Number Card Glue Dots Blog Hop Project
I created this birthday card for my father’s recent 70th birthday!  I know it looks patriotic, but I wanted to show that you can use “themed” products for more than just the obvious.  Plus….we are a very patriotic family!

3L Scrapbook Adhesive Number Card Glue Dots Blog Hop Project
To make this card I used several products from the 3L adhesives brand….let me just say this….NOT ALL ADHESIVES ARE CREATED THE SAME. I have to admit, that with all my crafting, I had moved away from using some of these adhesives and were using the “off brand” stuff. It was so refreshing to work with these adhesives and get reinspired. Adhesives really are the UNSUNG HEROES of our projects….those of you that craft no what I mean.

Supplies Used For 70th Birthday Card

I started out be desiging the numbers with my Pazzles. I made the holes just a little bit bigger so that the glue dots would easily fit inside the holes. I cut out the “template” along with a solid version in the patterned paper.

Here you an see where I added all of the micro glue dots. It wasn’t time consuming at all. Once I got my finger nails out of the way…lol.

After I put all the glue dots in place I removed the template and then sprinkled some glitter onto the dots. I simply burnished the glitter into the dots with my finger. I used a little paint brush to dust off the glitter and that was it.

Here’s a closer look at the glue dot glittered numbers. You can see that the glue dots keep their shape really well and the glitter covers it.

I finished off the rest of the card by using some of the stickers that came in the paper crafting set to spell out happy.

Then last but by no means least, I used some of the 3D Foam stars to add some fun. I simply sprinkled them with glitter and then placed them on my card. I love that they allow me to use other mediums aside from paper AND give a little dimension all in one shot!
