Step By Step
After an hour, I turned the agitator back on and let the machine finish on the delicate cycle. This dissolved and washed away the Elmer's Gel Glue. Finally, I put the material in the dryer on low heat to dry.
While the glue was drying on the material, I made the card using a piece of letter-sized textured cardstock. After folding it in half, I determined the placement and size of the hole I would need to cut to showcase the flower pin. I used my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine to cut the circle out of the paper. You could also do this easily by hand.
Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo to add the text and illustration to the front of the card with a sketching pen. Again, this can easily be done using a stencil, by hand. I glued scrapbook embellishments to decorate the illustration and text.
