So I shouldn’t run the cardstock through my Xyron and then paint Mod Podge on top. I need to decide ahead of time what adhesive I’m going to use. Since the white craft paint has a metallic sheen to it, I’m going to just use some Mod Podge for the Cricut patriotic sign. Create this easy Cricut Patriotic Sign perfect for Fourth of July.
