I got my Fuse Tool and Card kit from We R Memory Keepers early this week. This kit is now only sold by HSN. SUPER EXCITED to try this fuse tool after hearing some review from my crafty friends 🙂
And today I had a chance to make this cute birthday card to celebrate one of my favorite stamp & die companys. Neat and Tangled is celebrating their 3rd Birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Neat and Tangled! Wish you the best all year long!
I am inspired by one of the Card Examples come with the kit:
Using the fuse tool I made this card in less than 5 minutes and with no kids around because the fuse tool is very HOT. Background and banners are fusable papers. This fusable papers are smooth and have to be very careful when want to fuse them together, they could be very slippery. Simply add the banner on the background paper and fuse them one by one, overlapping them little bit.
Then I added some crystal clear sequins from Neat and Tangled using Glue Dots Mini. I got them from as a little gift from them when I ordered stamps and dies 🙂 Their sequins have beautiful colors and thick, check them out and you’ll love them, too.
For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Joyful Birthday stamp set (LOVE this set from CTMH!) using Desert Sand Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad on a piece White Daisy cardstock, then using Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors I cut the dove tail. I used 3D Foam tape to add the banner sentiment on the card.
In my opinion, for making this fusable papers into cards, they are not strong enough and too slippery and smooth to write on. There are couple tricks. First, if you still want to make the card using this fusable paper, you can add a piece of white cardstock inside the card for writing space and make it stronger. Second trick which is what I do for my cards, that I use White Card as the base. After decorating the fuse paper with embellishments, I add it on the front card using glue runner. I almost covered the whole card with glue to make sure they glued together.
And my card is done 🙂 Hopefully you’ll like it as much as I like making it! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
