How to Glue Glitter Card Stock, Embellishments and a Freebie

Happy New Year Everyone! May this be your Best Year Ever!

It is freezing sub zero cold here in Central NY and I was able to spend some time in my cozy warm craft room, So  I made a birthday card for a sweet little 7-year-old.  I wanted to use her favorite colors: Red, Brown, and Turquoise.  I thought using a bit of Glitter Cardstock would add a nice touch.


I used Best Glue Ever for all the embellishments and paper on this card: lace, felt, glitter and glitter cardstock it held it all on perfectly!

Glitter cardstock can be problematic  when it comes to adhesives, it is very heavy and the textured surface can be very difficult to get adhesion


Just a little will hold it perfectly!  No more score tape -one glue for all the layers.

I really enjoyed making this whimsical card!

and thought I would leave you the sentiment digital that I made:

If you have an electronic cutter, this comes out beautifully!

Thanks for stopping by and stay warm!
