A Wedding Card - made with Elmer's CraftBond Adhesives

About time I made a card! The BzzAgent campaign for Elmer's Crafters is ending soon, and I needed a card for a special occasion. So I brought out the supplies that I'd received:

For this project, I used the Elmer's CraftBond glue stick and a few CraftBond glue spots (thin-mini). I would have used the pop-up glue spots, but I was concerned that a thicker/unevenly thick card would be damaged in the mail.

To make this wedding card, I cut the image (Dance in the City, Renoir) from another card. I made a frame from pink cardstock and a mat from dark green cardstock. Since the wedding invitation was embossed with gold ink, I wanted to include some gold on the card; this ribbon stamped with "Love" was a perfect fit.


And this is how it turned out!

I liked the CraftBond glue stick because it seemed to be softer than other glue sticks I've used. It seemed to glide on more smoothly than others. The CraftBond glue spots were easy to use, as well. If I'd had the repositionable type, I would have used them here: I would have been less nervous if I knew I could adjust the pieces after I'd set them down!

By the way, it's hard to see in this picture, but the bride has a pink flower in her hair. That's why I decided to go with pink and green, rather than the burgundy and gold that I'd originally picked out.

Disclosure: Thanks to BzzAgent, I received samples of Elmer's CraftBond adhesives and X-ACTO cutting tools for review purposes.
