Asian Cards meet Tombow XTREME Permanent Adhesive




















A couple of months ago I was contacted by Tombow to be a part of Tombow Sticky University and try out their new XTREME Permanent Adhesive by Tombow which is five times stickier than their regular adhesive.! I already used their Tombow markers as well as Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue so I was up for the challenge to see if would hold up.

For the first card I used the XTREME Permanent Adhesive  to hold the all the elements on the card, even the ribbon is held by the Xtreme Permanent adhesive. This ribbon is quite heavy and is holding really well.

For the second card I created this fancy fold card using Xtreme Permanent adhesive to hold all the elements on this card together. Again I used it on the satin red ribbon to see if it would hold, and tried it on the Chipboard pieces as well. Of course it holds it in place, so I'm really impressed with this tape runner to hold heavy elements.















Here is a picture of the inside card.
