Once you begin experimenting with our Double-Sided Tape, you won't be able to stop!

A lot of these photos are taken at an angle to reduce the reflection and glare from the camera's flash. Scanning is even worse! Sorry!

Items you will need to make this card:



Stamp Wheresoever onto a darker brown Bazzill Cardstock using the VersaMark Stamp Pad. Sprinkle with Gold Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heat emboss with a Heat Gun. Cut a piece of #4 Double sided tape and lay it on the cardstock

Remove the release paper.

Lay a piece of 5mm Double Sided Tape on the sticky side of the 25mm Double Sided Tape (do not remove the release paper from this smaller piece).

Lay the Copper Transfer Foil (with the copper coloured side up!) over the strip of sticky tape and rub with a bone folder or fingers. Make sure you run your fingernail along the very edge of the 5mm tape so the Copper foil sticks right to the edge of the smaller tape.
Pull up the corner to check to see if the foil adhered to your satisfaction. Wow, magic!

Now remove the release tape from the narrower #1 Double Sided Tape.

Lay the Gold coloured Transfer Foil over the narrow strip of exposed sticky tape. Burnish and check for adhesion.

Fast and easy card! Very Classy!

Here is another variation on the Double-Sided Tape Challenge.... Do you start to see the amazing possibilities??

Items you'll need to make this card:



Stamp If I Had a Star on the darkest colour of Bazzill Monochrome Blue and emboss with Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder. Add a piece of 12mm Double-Sided Tape across the card below the quote.

Remove the release paper and use a paper punch to create holes in the release paper.

Carefully reposition the release paper back on the Double-Sided Tape and burnish down.

Dust with Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder and brush off the excess. Heat emboss with a Heat Gun.

Remove the release paper from the Double-Sided Tape. Nice stars, eh?

Use the 6 Line Post-It Tape to protect the paper beside the Double-Sided Tape.

Dust the Double-Sided Tape with Forever Blue Perfect Pearls using the larger brush in the kit.

Remove the 6 Line Post-It Tape and there you have a very cool card!
