Adhesive as a Design Element

 Good morning and happy hump day!  I have a card to share with you today that I created for Prime Publishing using products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  I wanted to do something with these dimensional foam squares besides just placing them behind a piece of paper.  I wanted to create some type of design element with them.  While the foam squares are on the sheet I cut them into 3x3 pieces.  I carefully peeled off the tops and placed my light blue paper on top of it.  Since they are sticky on both sides I was able to flip it, peel the tops off of that side and then sprinkle it with silver glitter.  
I swiped the edges of the blue paper with Versamark and sprinkled it with silver embossing powder.  I adhered that over a pink scalloped square with Crafty Foam Tape.  The sentiment was cut using Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam sheet.  I ran it through my die cut machine, peeled off the top and sprinkled a pale pink glitter over it.  I glued it to the silver squares.  
I felt like it needed a pop of color and little bit of somethin' somethin', so I took two leaves and coated them in a lime green glitter.  I also cut a small flower from the leftover Crafty Foam sheet and adhered that to the leaves.  I tied a bit of white string and placed it under the blue glittery flower.  I glued a pearl to the center for the last finishing touch. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I truly appreciate your visits!

Wow, that's a lot of dimension! It looks like something you'd hang on the wall, and that's just what I'd do with it if I were to receive it in the mail. It should be on display. So cute with all that glittery foam!
