Add Multiple Glitter with EASE! No More Mess!

by Virginia Lu

Hello Altenew friends! It's Virginia here! Do you avoid using glitter because it is super messy!? Well, you are definitely not alone! Altenew's latest product “Double-sided Adhesive Sheet (10 sheet/set)” will make your projects shine with ease!  I am pleased to show you the easy way to add glitter without a huge mess. Let's get started!

First, I die cut the “Just Leaves Die Set” over the Adhesive Sheets just like you normally do with paper. You can use Mini Blossom for this purpose. I then carefully peel off the bottom layer of paper and stick to the desired spot. Be sure to pre-plan your intended placement before adhering. I peeled off the top layer of adhesive and poured the Champagne color glitter (seen in photo #1).

Once the Champagne color glitter is all glued to the adhesive sheet, I peeled off the top part of paper and added the green glitter. I then carefully press the paper over the glitter to make sure the glitter are well adhered to the adhesive.

After cleaning off the excess  glitter, I now can complete the card.

I used the leftover Adhesive Sheet and applied it behind the leaves. The “Enjoy The Ride 6″x6″ Paper Pad” is perfect for the card base.

For the sentiment, I used Bold Thanks Die with the same stripe paper from Enjoy the Ride.
