I love the way glitter looks but I hate using it. It always ends up making me look like I just stepped out of the chorus line since I usually end up with it all over me or in my eye. Eye glitter is the worst. Maybe I need to wear goggles when I use glitter? Because I’ve yet to invest in glitter goggles, I always use Stickles instead of glitter. (Curious about Stickles? Here’s a helpful post.) I say all that to get to one single point…I do like Sparkly Fluff. It’s basically flock with glitter in it. Somehow, I don’t end up covered in it and it’s so soft! I used it on the trees in the card and on that brad. To apply it, I used something that I’ve never bought until recently and now LOVE: this Quickie Glue pen. It held the flock really well. I was impressed!
All that flock and glitter talk and I didn’t really even talk about this card. I made it using these Spellbinder’s dies: Lacey Pennants, Large Nestabilities Squares, and Nestabilities Lacey Squares. I used the smaller triangles/banners as the trees. What’s cool about Spellbinder’s dies is that you can also use the same die to emboss the image you cut. You can see that a bit if you look at the part with the stamping. I ran these dies through my Sizzix Big Shot, a machine I truly adore.
I was working on a totally different post for today but you know what? It took a lot longer than I anticipated! I’ll post it soon though!
