Hey, everyone! Roree here with a Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a card I created with a fun background using adhesive and glitter.
For it, I used the E-Z Dots tape runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and some fine glitter.
I started with some white cardstock and washi tape, placing the washi tape around the edges of the cardstock panel to leave a border. I then ran strips of adhesive over the center of the panel.
I covered the adhesive with glitter.
After removing the excess glitter, I was left with a beautiful, sparkling background for my card.
I finished the card by decorating it with paper, stickers, and Bradz from Simple Stories‘ Posh collection.
You can find more creative ideas for using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L on their blog HERE.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’ve been using Scrapbook Adhesives for 15 years now and I did not know they had a “dot” adhesive. I must leave my craft cave more often! Thank you for the demonstration, I look forward to trying it.
I love all the different patterned papers here! I am collecting tons of ideas here! Can’t wait to see these items for sale in Duluth, GA in July!!
You can never, ever have enough glitter! Bonding with adhesives is the best way to go.
The papers are wonderful. Edison, NJ here I come. It’s a great show.
The sweet bow goes well with the sweet cupcake!
Now that is original, putting glitter over adhesive. I could do that

I love this card. Going to have to try this method.
I’m called the glitter queen in my home and of proud of it. Just when they thought it was over it comes back. If I had a big moustache I’d be twisting it right about now (hehehe)
