It has been a hoot

This subscribing by emails to my blog apparently caused such a confusion  today. People have mistaken my blog post for my emails . I think I am usually so garrulous and post about more than a paragraph. But the past two posts have been a sentence or two and so caused such a confusion.
So let me do a small project garrulously.
The video for this can be seen at art glitter website. I love art glitter dry clear glue and more than that love their metal glue caps. They are so easy that one can write with them and then add glitter. But other than that I find that this is stronger than zip dry. I can glue so many things so well.. For fabric they have their own fabric glue. It does not string like zip dry. I find that annoying in zip dry. Also it comes as white and then dries clear (they also have opaque white one) That way I can see where I am adding the glue. I saw this technique and it works so well. All we need is a xyron , strong glue, polyster lace, paper, glitter - minimum 2 colors   and maybe some die cuts .  You can also use any stencils but the lace - oh it looks so slinky!!! naughty but elegant!! Now why polyster - it peels of easily off the xyron without leaving fibres behind.. That's why
Xyron the paper. I xyroned a white paper which was cut quarter inch less than the folded card

Then remove the paper covering it and lay in the polyster lace

Then add one color of the glitter (work for contrast here so choose two glitters that are contrasting to show better - so one color dark and one color light)

Then tap off the excess glitter and put it back in the bottle and then peel the lace

It will  look beautiful already. Now add the next color which will fall into the remaining adhesive space and fill in

Then tap off the excess. You an now leave it as it is or decorate it more by adding a strong glue just to some regions and adding more glitter of 3rd color or you can also xyron die cuts like the butterflies and add them with glue

Just stamp a sentiment inside. You can also cut out the wavy part at the bottom and retain the black and add it on the inside so that it will look like this but then when you open you get the scallop.
How cool and fast is that!! Oh of course you will be all covered in glitter by the end of it if you are anything like me. So grab some laundry drier sheets!! :)
Sassy , Mya and myself joked so much about the glitter and laundry sheets in the Mb. I loved this technique so much and so sent her a card like this on her birthday!!
And of course this card is going to someone too after it is worked on a bit more
