Hi everyone! Today I have another Glue Dots project to share with you. This one is another out of the box type of card project.
Complete card instructions are at the bottom of this post.
Now let’s be honest. . . attaching buttons to a card or layout is a PAIN. Well, with Glue Dots, it is so easy! No more worrying about buttons and thicker embellishments falling off of your project. Using Glue Dots for attaching embellishments is my #1 way in which I use my Glue Dots. They are just the absolute best way I have found to attach an embellishment.
Here is a look at the card while it is closed:
You can see in this photo how the die template presses into the cardstock and makes a cute impression on the inside of the card. It is subtle, but really elegant looking.

Manual die cutting machine (Sizzix)
1. Stamp chick and cut it out. Color chick with pink, yellow, and purple Copics. Set aside.
2. Cut green cardstock to make card base that measures 4.25X5.5inches when folded in half. Run card through a manual die cutting machine using a label shape so that a window is made on the front of the card.
3. Stamp the front of the card base with Easter egg stamp using green ink.
4. Cut a purple strip of cardstock and stamp it with an Easter sentiment using purple ink. Attach strip to the card base using Craft Glue Dots® Dispenser.
5. Tie twine through the holes in the pink button. Attach button to the card using the Craft Glue Dot® Dispenser. An easy way to do this is to hold the button up to the dispenser and attach the Glue Dot® to the button and then press the button onto your card.
6. Using a Pop Up Glue Dot®, attach the chick to the inside layer of your card so that it is centered in the window cut out. To do this, I closed the card so I could see exactly where the window was positioned.
