Making a Fancy Card With The Best Glue Ever and a Freebie

Hi everyone, Ginny here, and 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.  
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 no clog 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. 

                               I was also able to use BGE on this glitter ribbon, it held perfectly!

                                                       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! 

Thanks for stopping by and here is my freebie for you today! Digitized verse by Karen Murray
