Good Morning!

We are here with Day THREE of our Blog Week with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! Hope you are having as much fun as we are.

Today Design Team Member Andrea Amu has a really cool card for us. Don’t just take one look at this…keep looking at those close-ups!

Andrea used  Core’dinations White Wash collection and Snowflake white Core Essentials cardstock along with the Baby Boy collection from Bella Blvd.
The 3L product used for this project included:
- 3L Thin 3D Foam Squares to add slight dimension to the patterned paper accents added to the card, as well as the sticker and washi tape badge embellishing.
- 3L White Photo Corners.
- 3L 3D Dodz, used to attach the button the the “O”.
- 3L My Stik applicator E-Z Dots for general adhesive.
(for a list of all of these prodcuts check it out here at
Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea herself,
“I embossed the Snowflake Core with a Darice Plaid embossing folder and added color to the embossing with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Broken China.  I then added extra dimensional lines to the plaid with some Aleene’s Paper Glaze dimensional medium.  After the lines completely dried, I went in and accenting color to the textured lines with some pearlized Smooch Ink in Sundance and Azure.”
You can totally see how she sanded the white wash and then added all that cool color in the stripes.
Check out all those layers!!!!
