A Couple Christmas Cards...

I thought I would show you a couple more I made today with my new set, Come to Bethlehem, from the new Idea Book & Catty...and some super fine glitter and sugar beads (2nd card)...

I started by stamping the image on Whisper White cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia....Then I cut out a piece of Sookwang adhesive sheet that was a bit larger than my stamped image. I peeled one side of the adhesive off and placed the image face down onto the sticky side. Using a craft knife, I carefully trimmed around the image and then peeled off the other protective paper, revealing the other sticky side. I placed it face down in a tray of Sugar Beads (the first card was done using transparent glitter) and moved it around to ensure that the image was fully covered. I matted the image on some Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered it to my card base... and WALAAA! Instant beautiful!!!
Now, just so that all you SU Demo's know...I *did* try to use our adhesive sheets that are being sold in the Mini, and it {does} work, but the beads/glitter will rub off :( The Sookwang sticky paper is ULTRA STICKY so it does work better...
Thanks for stoppin' in tonight - be sure to hop on back in the morning - I have a secret I will share!!!! :)


  1. Cool, looks like it would be hard to do.....but the results very nicely done. I like it alot.

  2. These worked awesome with the SU stamps! Can't wait to try this technique with you!!


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate each and every one - they make my day! :)
