Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: DAD ATC Card with Adhesive Sheets

Today on Father's Day, I am up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog. Although my dad is not with me, I am always happy to CELEBRATE HIM :) A card wouldn't do so I decided on an ATC (Artist Trading Card) using mostly Adhesive Sheets to put it all together.

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Spellbinders® Paper Arts for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **

DAD ATC by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

  1. Cut patterned paper into a custom ATC size (4.0 x 2.875 inches). Normally they are 3.5 x 2.5 inch - I like to be different ;)
  2. Apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6" on the back of patterned paper and copper + white foil paper. See video at the end of instruction on the how to.
  3. Die-cut patterned paper with alpha dies to spell out "DAD."
  4. Die-cut copper and white foil paper with gears steel rule die.
  5. Adhere to the ATC as shown in photo. Excess can either be cut or dust talcum powder to alleviate the stickiness.
  6. Add metal gear piece with Dodz Adhesive Dots 3D (the exposed area will be covered by a photo).
  7. Color copy a photo and cut to 1.625 x 2.125 inches. Adhere with E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser. The vintage photo is of my dad as a Japanese high schooler :)
  8. Punch a hole with a paper piercer in the ATC and add metal embellishment with matching brad.
