I am usually not a big glitter fan but I can’t stop using glitter on my cards this week! Isn’t there something about a card with sparkle that brightens your whole day?
This card uses the Acetate and Glitter technique. For this technique, you stamp on a window sheet with a permanent ink like StazOn. Once dry, turn the window sheets over and apply Crystal Effects where you want the glitter to adhere. The Crystal Effects does not need to be applied thickly but it need to be consistent. Make sure that there are no lines from the nozzle and that the Crystal Effects fully covers the area where the glitter will be applied.
Cover generously with glitter and tap off excess. Allow to dry fully.
TIP: To test if the Crystal Effects has dried, feel the window sheets from underneath (do not put your finger in the glitter!) and if it is cold to the touch it is not yet dry.
