Lawn Fawn + Glue Arts Week! - Day 3

Hey there, everyone!!  Lawn Fawn and Glue Arts have combined forces this week, bringing you inspiration using our products together, and of course, some giveaways!!  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog and the Glue Arts blog for your chance to win some fabulous prizes!!

For my card today, I used a few different adhesives from Glue Arts.  For adhering down all the papers, I chose the GlueGlider Pro with Permatac adhesive.  I can admit...the tool was a bit intimidating to me when I looked at it....but once I grabbed it and started applying adhesive to my papers, it was easy as pie to use!!  You will love it!  I used the 1/2-inch ExtremeTac adhesive squares to adhere the snowflake, and the 3D Combo Pack (U Cut It foam sheets) to add the sentiment banner.  Here is what I created (all challenges are linked at the bottom):
  "Bright Christmas Wishes" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (red) & Papertrey Ink (smooth white)
Paper: GCD Studios (Scandia Jul: Scandie Bird Pink, Sparkle Lattice Light Green, Hip Holiday Stripe, Scandinavian Holiday Stripe)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: magenta, evergreen) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Ribbon/Snowflake ornament: Michael's brand
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs (green) & Westrim Crafts (star)
Steel Dies: Papertrey Ink (medium scallop) & Spellbinders (Labels Eighteen)

Instructions:  Make card from red cardstock.  Cut pink patterned paper block and matte on white cardstock.  Cut a scalloped border from green dot paper, and adhere to the bottom of the pink block.  Adhere the entire block to the card front.  Add a strip of stiped paper across the middle.  Diecut a label from white cardstock, trim off the bottom of it and adhere.  Glue a green bow to the top of a snowflake ornament, and adhere to the label.  Stamp the tree to its different paper layers, cut out, and layer together.  Adhere the tree to the snowflake middle, and then accent with green jewels.  Cut banner edges to a white cardstock strip, then stamp the sentiment to it.  Adhere the sentiment banner below the tree using foam adhesive.

Nichol Magouirk is my partner in crime today, and she has a gorgeous card plus video for you today!!  Be sure to check it out!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
