 Now, it's time to show you my card! I used the new Kitschy Kitchen stamp set with coordinating dies. This is SUCH an amazing set. I also used the previously released Bookmark Dies.


 Xyron adhesives were the perfect way to add a little sparkle to my card. After I stamped and die cut my tea pot I ran it through the Xyron create-a-sticker to add adhesive to the TOP of my image. Then I took clear ultra fine glitter, sprinkled it on and pushed it in to the adhesve. Instant glitter! Next, I wanted to add a little more glitter so I ran some Double-Sided High Tack Tape on the left side of my card and used the same technique to add more of the same glitter. Finally, Xyron's Adhesive Dots are a great way to adhere small embellishments, like the bow I added to the bookmark die. :) I really enjoyed working with the Xyron adhesives this month! They are high quality, fun and all opinions are my own. :)
