January 2018 Sketch - Card Assembly Tips

Run papers through an embossing folder to add contrast to any of the larger plain panels.

Place a small amount of adhesive on the backs of the 1.5x2" rectangles and arrange temporarily on the Club Scrap Desk Blotter.

Attach the stamped panels to the card. Wrap a black ribbon around the white print strip to add interest. The sentiment from the Surprise Greeting Unmounted Stamps fits perfectly onto the 1.25x1.5" rectangles.

Colorful sequins from your stash add a bit of sparkle to the front of the cards. Adhere them to the panels with Bookbinding Glue dispensed with a Needle-tipped Applicator.
