What would be the best way to attach this?
This die cut from a Trim The Tree Cricut cartridge presented a challenge for me.
I didn't know how to attach the intricate cut to the back layer.
So I tried a Precision Tip Glue Pen from Elmer's http://www.elmers.com
and didn't control the flow well enough for it to be as clean as I would have liked.
So then I decided to glitter the tree to "cover up" my initial mess - ok, right.
What is the easiest way to glitter something this "dainty"?
Notice how the glitter was really hit and miss.
I diluted Elmer's Glue and applied it to the cut out with a paint brush.
It seemed to
(1.) dry a little too fast or
(2.) I didn't cover it well enough, or
(3.) the ceiling fan over my work table contributed to it.
(4.) maybe a little of all of the above
The coverage for the star background on the white cardstock was pretty
hit and miss with the embossing glue.
Which meant that not all the stars were glittered.
Whatever the reason(s), the coverage was not what I'd hope it would be.
Inside of card was stamped with a
(Merry Christmas 07 DR1105)
stamp that I found at Hobby Lobby while on a mini vacation (thanks, Ash).
Anyone else see the "fingerprints" on this?
I told you, I'm learning!!!
Any and all suggestions of how to correct some of these issues and
learning techniques from others is my
primary goal for this site.
Please help out those of us who are new to this craft and add your suggestions.
It is always nice to learn from other's experience.
It saves alot of frustration and ultimately money in
unusable projects and
unnecessary/incorrect application of products.
Wishing you a very relaxing Sunday!
Be kind to everyone!
