Merry Christmas Card Stick-It Adhesive Sheets Test
I have used Sookwang (Scor-Tape) double-sided adhesive for years and LOVE it. There are so many things to do with it, besides just using as tape. One of the fun techniques is using it to die cut. I have heated it while using embossing powders and it has always worked well. I wanted to try the Stick-It Adhesive Sheets and see if it also held up to heat. Stick-It Adhesive Sheets are much nicer to die cut compared to Sookwang – especially for intricate dies. So in my test I decided to combine a few different techniques I’ve done successfully with the Sookwang adhesive.
First I decided I would use one of the most intricate dies I have to see how well the Stick-It Adhesive Sheets cut – Memory Box Lucca Ornament ~ It cut awesome!
Next I applied foil flakes to the sticky side of the outline of the die cut. Success! Perhaps due to the intricacy of the die, it didn’t go on as nicely as I’d hoped; but it works! I also found the Stick-It Adhesive Sheets aren’t nearly as sticky as the Sookwang (Scor-Tape) Adhesive. Some people might find this a good thing, lol 🙂
Finally I applied embossing powder to the sticky side of the inside die cut pieces & heated with my heat tool. Again, success! I found on this project the Stick-It Adhesive Sheets can be heated without melting the adhesive.
I put all the pieces together on a black cardstock background, using the new Tattered Lace Notched Diamonds die. To finish the card I used the following Gold Peel-Offs ~ 842 & 374. The card base is Neenah Classic White 80lb Cardstock, available in store only.
Whether you use the Sookwang (Scor-Tape) Adhesive Sheets or the Stick-It Adhesive Sheets, you have the opportunity to create fun projects, using your dies and other mediums to create unique embellishments for your pieces of art. Have fun, explore 🙂
