Texture Paste and Stencils

It is Tips and Techniques Thursday and today's technique is using Texture Paste with a stencil cut from the Close To My Heart Cricut Artbooking Digital Collection and stencil sheets.

Using the Tombow Mono liquid glue, which is a two way glue, goes on white and let it dry and becomes repositionable, allows you to hold the stencil in place for easy application.

Design Space Friday Peek A Boo Card

I call this a Peek a Boo cutout card. The center is clear with a pattern paper showing through. You can add stamping, Design Space cut text or written text through the middle too, as you will see in today's Design Space Friday video

The peek a boo cutout piece has a piece of acetate (transparency) that covers the opening making the card a little stronger. I added pattern paper to cover the acetate.

I added a little flower surprise inside by placing a cutout flower in the same position as one of the flowers on the card front.


Supplies used:
Flower Market Digital Collection (Z3501)
