Stick It Adhesive Sheets have been around for a little over a year and were huge at CHA 2015 last January. Having tried it out, I can certainly see what all the fuss is about. Stick It is a micro fine, but very strong adhesive that has super thin silicone release paper on the front and back sides. Even with that, the whole sheet is as thin as a piece of inexpensive printer paper. One of the really great things about it is that the release paper is incredibly easy to peel away making it a natural choice for intricate die cutting. I was anxious to try this out with another technique, glitter inlay. I cut my Paper Trey Ink Twist Cover Plate (A2 sized) from a piece of SU! Regal Rose Card stock. Then I applied a piece of stick-it to a plain white card stock panel on the front side. I removed the release paper from the front side and I carefully placed my die cut over the adhesive, sandwiching the adhesive layer in between.
This is gorgeous but definitely too glitzy for a guy card and really even for most of the women I know. So decided that I would "sacrifice" the large piece by putting it behind another die cut panel to tone it down. Papertrey Ink did a "Make It Monday" card and video similar to this that they called a "Window Screen Card".
I cut another panel of the Regal Rose Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Dies using the largest one. Then I took the Heart Dies from Little B, making sure I also included the stitching detail which is a separate piece, and cut the window into the panel. I have several of the dies in this set held together with the stitching part using some Micropore Tape. I've found that Micropore tape will mar the surface of my card stock, but for holding dies together for a single pass through the cutting machine, it is great and I just leave the tape on them when I put them away for the next time. Putting adhesive all around the outside edge of that panel, I adhered it to the glittery panel and this left a beautiful glittered border all the way around the outside. I lined up the center of the heart window to be in line with the center of the background.
I'll be entering this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog which is "Something New".
