So after a couple of evenings of making all the elements of for the cards, I need to start to put them together. and I started with making the windows. Fitting a back to a front with the help of 3D foam. It does help them look more like windows with vistas.
As I am using an embossed piece of Centural Pearl, I knew that my trusted dry herma would not be sticky enough to hold the window topper so I opted to go with a wet glue. If you follow my blog regularly you will know that when I can’t use herma, I tend to go with double-sided tape but that would have taken far too long.
I could be converted with this glue, its slightly thicker than acrylic glue I am use to but it dries very quickly but with still enough time to move the elements around until you are happy with the position.
