Hey guys, I'm having some trouble bonding materials on a card.



The card is black card stock with a raised stripe pattern

The cut out is a semi-transparent almost plastic type of paper which rips, but is difficult to cut: I bought it from Michael's.

I used double sided tape to attach the semi-clear plastic-paper to the card, and in most areas it is okay, but in certain areas i am having trouble keeping the two materials bonded. In intricate cuts the plastic-paper is curling up. So I'm wondering what I can use to stick to down





Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks guys!

i don't really know... i use acrylic gel medium to do that sort of thing but i'm not sure it would work with a semi-transparent paper - might change the appearance of the paper. don't they make a special glue for vellum? maybe that would work?

Cool card!

Elmer's rubber cement may work?  The bottle says it dries clear.  It would be easy to swipe it under the smaller loose pieces. 

Other glues that dry clear are Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue (in the purple bottle)--my favorite glue ever!  And E6000.  You could use a q-tip to apply both of these.

I'd test all three on some scrap material first, though, to make sure they don't show through.

super 77 spray adhesive is amazing! Other sprays might work well, too, but Super 77 is the best - especially with the curly of the small details.
