Add Multiple Glitter with EASE! No More Mess!

 Hello friends!

It is my turn to share a project over Altenew Card Blog.  It is all about glitter....

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" 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).12192020-Just Leaves Die-DoubleSided Adhesive Sheets#2

 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.12192020-Just Leaves Die-DoubleSided Adhesive Sheets-BoldThanks Die#5 (2)

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.

The Metallic Thread and Pure White Sequins make this card truly shine!

Gorgeous cards! Looks like the adhesive sheets make using glitter fun again ( like when we were young and didn’t care about the mess). The green glitter is a fabulous shade!

Virginia, I am not a glitter, or glam girl, but you have captured a natural beauty with these lovely leaves!
So beautiful - I finally have a reason to use all this glitter from kits that I've never used!
Thanks, my friend!
