Merry Christmas in July!

Hey girls! Whether you are here from ScrapGal.com or Add Glitter and stir, welcome! Glad to have you! Hope you are getting all kinds of caught up on Christmas stuff, I'm not! I'm sitting on a beach in Hawaii! But I do feel generous. So I think I will do another little RAK. Merry Christmas in July from me to you. Just leave me a post before tomorrow at noon and I will hook you up with a little surprise Kauaian style! It's not gonna be scrappy stuff, something from the island. You will like it. Or at least I will like sending it!

So here is a card I made from a pageframes clear acrylic bird shape... at least I think it's pageframes! lol! You know how that goes, you take it out of the package and can't remember anymore.


What I did:

1. So that the card could be truely doublesided was write my message on the back side of the double sided paper. That's the key... DOUBLESIDED!


2. Then I used liquid glue. The metal kind from making memories. You need something that will hold tight to the non-pourous surface but still remain clear.


3. Adhere everything down and you are good to go! Drop some rubons too if you've got 'em! I used some metal charms, rubons, snowflake trim, and rick rack. You can use whatever! IF you have to use regular adhesive, like tombow or something, this is a good way to hide it.


Have fun! Be sure to check out the Gal blog for a month of Christmas ideas and bounce around the Christmas blog party over at Add Glitter and Stir for more giveaways and ideas! Enjoy!
