DIY Glitter Card...make your own custom colours.
I always keep a jar of watered down tacky glue. I use it when I make mini books and do decoupage. This time I used it to make glitter card. I worked on peices of card approximately 1/3 of an A4 size so that I was not overwhelmed with glitter. I coated the card evenly with my"Digit -al" glue spreader aka my finger. Then I sprinkled the glitter on, and tapped off the excess and left it to dry. The glitter sticks really well to the card - make sure you leave it long enough to dry out...at least an hour and a half I would say...but even longer would be better.
As you can see, I don't bother going right to the edges with my glue so as I have something to hold onto when I am tapping off the excess. You now have your very own homemade glitter card which you can use as any other glitter card. It die cuts beautifully and this now means you can create very detailed glittered die cuts. You can even mix your colours as I did for my butterfly necklace and dragonfly box. Remember you have to work quick and clean up each colour after using so that you don't end up with a mixed coloured mess to clean up.
Let me know if you try it.
