Default metallic paper and adhesive

Has anyone else had a problem with metallic paper not sticking? I believe the paper is from Paper Studio, but I won't swear to it. I bought the Glue Glider Pro last Sunday specifically because I read it had strong adhesive (the perma tac), nearly as good as the ATG. Well, I made some Christmas cards last night with this metallic paper and when I got up this morning, the layers were coming apart! I've now put red tape on them and it appears to be working, but it's only been a few hours. Any thoughs or suggestions? Thanks.

I know someone who uses rubber cement for attaching her layers, because it moves.
I bet that may work

My Christmas cards this year use a base layer of the SU Brushed Gold card stock and I haven't needed to use any special adhesive. My working sample is put together with Snail, but I'm using my ATG tape gun to put the actual cards together because it is so much quicker to use- making 80 cards.

In general, I have found metallic paper is tricky with adhesives. I made some card-type tea bag holders and used a sticky tape I've used with success before to close the pocket at the bottom. They came undone at the bottom when I put the tea bags inside. I redid them with glue dots on the bottom edge, and they are holding now.

But for layering with metallic paper on card fronts, I've had good luck with Mono Multi liquid in the green and white bottle. The layers hold good with it for that type of thing.

For me, scor-tape has worked the best. It seems to hold the metallic paper better.

I, too, made my Christmas cards with metallic paper this year and found them falling apart the next day. I had used my ATG, something that generally gives me great results. I was not in my home town and could not find any red-liner tape. I bought glue lines, and they have worked well.

How about trying glue-dots. Or "mount" it on with mounting tape.
