Thinking about it being time for Christmas decorations to go up is what inspired today's card:
(All bold products are linked below in the supply section)
These pretty Taylored Expressions Ornament Overlays were "hung" on the card with an awesome new Deco Tape from X-Press It (and your Copic distributor, Imagination International). The tapes come in either Paper or Glitter ... In honor of the holidays, I used Glitter, of course! :)
The tapes are 6mm (or 1/4") inch wide. For the ornament hangers, I cut the silver tape in half. For the left side border of the card, I used a double row of the silver tape. Here are the 10 pretty colors you get in one package:
Here's a little more about this awesome Glitter Deco Tape:
- 10 different glitter colors
- 7/16” (6mm) width
- Over 15 ft of tape on each role
- Flexible and tears easily by hand
- Reusable packaging stores tape neatly
- Peels off cleanly and does not leave sticky residue
- Personalize walls, windows, and accessories
- Narrow and flexible for precise application
Fun, right?!! Think washi tape, in gorgeous glittery colors! The "glitter" does NOT come off, and the tape is surprisingly very soft and pliable, and easy to reposition (without tearing or lifting up the paper to which it was applied), if needed!
For the delicate and intricate ornament overlays, I used X-Press It's Fine Glue Pen to adhere them to solid cardstock circles -- check out that VERY fine glue pen tip!
This is my favorite go-to glue pen for small die cuts -- the glue can either be used as a temporary bond (let it dry a little while before applying a glued piece to another piece of paper) or permanent (apply immediately). And the glue dries clear!
The card was finished with silver foil die cut hangers and the smallest and large ornaments were popped up on X-Press It 1/2" High Tack Foam Tape. The beautiful Taylored Expressions In & Out Christmas sentiment was silver heat embossed with a silver metallic sparkle embossing powder, to match the silver Glitter Deco Tape!
Here's another idea I had that uses the Glitter Deco Tape. I started to use it on the card above, but changed my mind and only used the silver tape. I applied the silver and gold tapes diagonally on a 1-inch strip of cardstock:
After the tape was applied, I trimmed the excess from the sides. Now I have a great accent strip to use on another project!
Thanks so much for joining me today ... I'm off to start my holiday decorating!
