Elizabeth Craft Designs May Designer Challenge - Flat A2 card
The Elizabeth Craft Designs' Design Team members were challenged to make a flat A2 sized card using Peel-Offs or any of their dies. I chose to use Jackie's Doll Peel-Offs to make a reposition able cling for my neighbor who will be graduating 5th grade.
To frame the image, I used Karen Burniston's Oval Dots Frame Edges. This particular die is meant to be used on her Accordion dies, but you can use it on its own just like I have by die cutting 4 of the frames & putting them together on a 4 x 4 piece of cardstock.
Here's some of the pieces I used to create this card. To make the reposition able cling, you will need a Transfer Sheet, Double Sided Adhesive & a Peel-Off. Els has a wonderful video on this technique. Basically you would cut a piece of Double Sided Adhesive and Transfer Sheet large enough to fit your image then stick the Double Sided Adhesive onto the Transfer Sheet. Next, remove the release sheet and lay your Peel-Off sticker onto the release sheet sticky side up, then lay your Double Sided Adhesive piece on the top. Then cover with Silk Microfine Glitter, shake off excess and polish with your finger. Now you are ready to color and cut out. When you remove the backing from the Transfer Sheet, you'll have your cling! It's really cool and you should try it out.
What I really like about Jackie's Dolls Peel-Offs is that they also have little accessory pieces to layer on top for extra dimension. For example the bow, bodice & headband as pictured above.
I added a few of the circles to the inside of the card - these are clings too!
