I'm on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today. I made a very special card for a special lady - my mom! Happy Birthday!! Along with loads of dimension, I used Adhesive Dots Small and glitter to create a sparkly flower center. Would you use this technique?

Let's start with the flower die cuts. I die-cut, embossed and then stencil through the die with ink to highlight its embossed design.
Next I embossed a 4.0 x 5.25 inch piece of dark pink cardstock with an embossing folder to make my A2-sized (4.25 x 5.50 inch) card panel. Cut and embossed a leafy vine in green cardstock.
I wanted a different kind of dimension so I cut the dark pink card panel one third from the bottom to leave space in between to stamp my sentiment. Using Crafty Foam Tape - Black, it give the panels a lift.
Using the two piece card panel as my guide, I lined up the sentiment in my stamp placement tool for a perfect imprint.
Now my favorite part! Making those glittery flower centers :) I placed an Adhesive Dots Small in the center, rub and lift off liner gently. Then pour on the glitter over the adhesive dot, press and shake off excess. SUPER EASY + FAST!
Next I trimmed the leafy vine and adhered with the Adhesive Dots Small (behind the leaves), then adhered flowers with 3D Foam Squares Regular White on top for extra dimension.
Here's another look...
