I love the copper spot foiling on these X’s and O’s—I used my Zig Two Way Glue Pen to coat only parts of the letters to create a really modern/graphic kind of look. This only works if you allow the two-way glue to dry completely—if it’s “wet”, this doesn’t work. When the glue totally dries, it will be tacky to the touch; I just applied copper foil over the top, burnishing the ugly side of the foil sheets against the tacky adhesive with the pads of my fingertips and then 3D mounted the letters to my card front.

Customized the sentiment by using the Letterboard Alphabet Die Set—this works pretty spiffy if you bulk cut the letters ahead. I did a Hello, Monday video about that on the Ellen Hutson Channel; you can check that out HERE.

The wheels are turning with ideas for 3D mounting all kinds of different images within that stitched Tic Tac Toe grid—how fun is that?!

Happy New Year!
