Sweet 16 Card using X-Press It Adhesive Sheets

Hello crafters.
Sharmaine here with a really fun way to make a sweet 16 card.


All you need is some cardstock, X-Press It Double Sided Adhesive Sheets and some 100’s & 1000’s


Cut two pieces of card to equal lengths (whatever your ideal card size may be)
Then take one of the cards and cut out the design you require.
I made mine nice and simple and cut it with an electronic cutting machine.


Next step is to cut a length of adhesive sheet
I cut a piece the same length as my card
Making it easy to adhere the two pieces of card
Peel off the backing sheet and adhere to one piece of card.


Then peel off the other backing sheet and stick the two pieces of cards together.


You will notice the “cut out section” now has the adhesive sheet peeking through.
Now comes the messy part!


Cover the whole sticky section with 100’s & 1000’s.
You may need to push them down from time to time
Until the whole section is covered.


But once the sprinkles are stuck onto the tape they won’t move far.


If you weren’t up for sprinkles you could coat the section with microbeads or sand.
You could also create tags, embellishments or even coat die cuts using the same technique.
X-Press It Adhesive Sheets are super strong and sticky.

Hope this has inspired you to create.
