GlueArts U Cut It Adhesive is Sweet, Sweet, Sweet

Yes, what could be sweeter than watermelon, and carefree summer days, and crafting the hours away with GlueArts adhesives?
Take our fabulous U Cut It Foam Adhesive, for example. This amazing stuff can be cut, die cut, stacked, glittered, foiled, colored, you name it! It's amazing. We would go so far as to say, well.............

It's totally sweet!

Today Designer Lisa Day has a sweet card to share, perfect for celebrating summer and friendship and U Cut It Foam.

Miss You Card
GlueArts Designer: Lisa Day

Glue Arts PermaTac Adhesive and Applicator
Glue Arts U-Cut it Foam
Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive
Fiskars 1 1/2" and 1 3/8" Circle Punch
Pink Paislee Hometown Summer Collection

Step 1 - Don't overlook the packaging that comes with paper packs! I love the small patterns for punching out shapes! Punch out some 1 1/2" and some 1 3/8" circles from Pink Paislee packaging.

Step 2 - Glue down the 1 1/2" circles using some PermaTac adhesive. Add a rubber embellishment in the spot of one of the circles.

Step 3 - Add some U-Cut it Foam to the back of the 1 3/8" circles and adhere them to the center of the other paper circles.

Step 4 - Cut out a strip of ruler paper and adhere it to the side of the card. Then using some Ribbon Adhesive layer a strip of ribbon. I love the ribbon adhesive for adhering thin ribbon. Works perfectly!

Step 5 - Cut out the "hometown summer" banner and adhere it to the card using some U-Cut it Foam. Add some rub-ons and a sentiment to your card.

The addition of some U-Cut it Foam to a simple card really makes the card pop!!

U Cut It Foam opens up a whole new "dimension" to card making and paper crafting. I want to make flowers, snowflakes, jack o'lanters and more. The use of foam will make creating shadows and depth so much easier. Thanks for the chance to win this great fingers are crossed, my die cut machines are ready and i am inspired!!
