Today I have made a very fancy card using unusual materials, I will show you the card and then share the process:
About 8 years ago a local store called the Final Markdown sold folio binder papers, 100 for $1.00 This was a faux leather finish 120# cover weight, 9x12. It was really gorgeous, I bought at all that they had! about 50 reams. I sold it in my Maxam Made Studio shop, gave tons away and now I am down to the last 25 sheets. Don't you just love coming across a great deal like that? I can't wait till the next one happens!
I made four of these cards using that paper on my Cricut. I used the German carbide blade and the poster board setting. I had expected the cutting to go just fine and it did. What was more complicated was adhering the paper lace to the background cardstock with a polished finish and delicate lacework. Using the tiniest amount of Best Glue Ever and the ultra fine writing tip I was able to precisely position the glue on the back of the lace and the background layer. No glue squished out - I can't stand when gluing blobs out and dries on a card front.
Glass glitter and pearls - no problem
Using different papers and feathers - perfect hold!
Having the best tools for crafting only makes sense when you consider time and effort you put into your art. Glue is an Unsung and Unseen Hero- Just the way you want it to be!
