it's fantastic - really adds a sparkle to my christmas cards!
My christmas cards have glitter on them, but that's how they came.
This may sound like a crazy question but do a lot of people in the UK make their own cards? It wasn't till the boards that I even knew anyone who did that. I think it would be really fun, but I currently don't have the time.
is it like a glue?
it's very popular and becoming more so i think, and they're far more sophisticated these days than when i used to dabble in crafty things years ago - there are *so* many products out there.
I just make them for personal use but it's hard to not spend too much money as everything is so tempting!
My sister makes some seriously fabulous cards, and my other sister makes them every now and then....but not since the baby arrived last year!
yes, it's a glitter glue but a good quality one - there are loads of different colours but i like the crystal one as when it dries you can still see the colour of whatever you've put it on.....it looks great on snowflakes and snowy scenes, you just highlight the areas you want to sparkle and a little goes a long way when it catches the light it sparkles and gives the card a little 'more' if you know what i mean
mumof2, do you have any photos? I know I know but I'm just a guy so until I see it, I can't visualise
I have a couple of stickles. They are easy to work with for accenting accurately because the tip is nice and small. I love the colours as well
erm, i can take some if my card has any space on it - not sure if it'll show up on a photo but i'll try it and see
i'm thinking they would enhance my scrapbook pages
dont' tell Mr Britchick:shocked025:
oh yes and i second the request for photos
Great tip thanx,
here are some photos - the quality isn't great but you'll get the idea!
Thats VERY cool
it is soooo cool Keith! I've been going back through the cards I made ages ago to see what I can add sparkle to!
So pretty! I love glitter. Lovely photos!
very nice! i do like a bit of bling
me too - glitter and sparkly bling all the way!
hmm, just a thought - i hardly ever wear any jewellery these days let alone bling
wow, your christmas cards are ace- you should sell them!
awww, thank you!
The cards are lovely, I agree with Josh you should go to craft fares and sell them
i am half thinking i might see if my sister wants to go shares on a stall next year - she makes fantabulastic cards!
Sounds like a good idea, extra spending money for your hols
