From Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: "Birthdays are worth celebrating with a little bit of sparkly glitter and rainbows, don’t you think? Michele Kovack uses Crafty Foam Tape White to make glittered stripes to “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside”, as well as between her layers to pop up elements with dimension."
Score and fold yellow card stock to 5 ¾ x 5 ¼-inch card base.
