How to make a card rich in color and texture using the Best Glue ever. Plus a fab Freebie


Somebody asked me recently what were my favorite colors to use in card making.  That is such a hard question!  I know my least favorite would be pastels. But my most favorite?  Right now I would have to say, Teal and Copper, rich deep fall-ish colors.
Here is a card I've made this week:





 I don't like adding lots of dimension to my cards because I mail them out and I don't want to mail them in boxes.  I do want lots of 'pop" and some bling and dazzle!  So using flat embellishments, ink and texture I think  I can pull that off!   A long time ago when I went to my favorite card making class I learned that when you use dry embossing, the average tape or glue won't hold it, you need to use a score tape.  Well, that gets pretty pricey!  I have found that my trusty Best Glue Everworkss wonderfully for dry embossing , foil and glitters of all shapes and sizes - and I only need one adhesive!


A perfect adhesive for teh dry embossed pieces:



It holds the lettering beautifully, no need for the sticker machine!


It holds all kinds of glitter, I especially love it for these gorgeous mica flakes and glitter 




It holds and keeps microbeads!

The glue dries crystal clear - no gray ick that splooges out!

What more can you ask for with an adhesive- Oh Yeah, this 2 oz bottle will make about 250 cards and it is easy to store!
