This card was part of a challenge project for my demo group. We needed to create samples using Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. Now, glimmer paper is beautifully sparkly all by itself, but I added a little extra shine to mine by covering it with a piece of Window Sheet (acetate). Then of course, that presents the challenge of how to adhere it since the window sheet is clear. So here's my final project.
Here's another view to showoff the extra shine, the acetate contributes so much to this card.
I really like how it turned out . . . the smooth feel with the sparkle underneath.
- I love my SNAIL adhesive and I use it almost exclusively on my cards. Its quick and easy and makes a very satisfactory paper to paper bond . . . . but, in my experience double sided tape does NOT work on the sparkly side of glimmer paper.
- The liquid tombo glue is a wonderfully strong adhesive for most paper projects, I use it a lot . . . . but even this does not hold well for me on glimmer paper. I think because the surface of the glitter is smooth so there's no fibers for the glue to sink into.
- By far my best results come with using Glue Dots.
Any adhesive presents a challenge when working with a transparent material like the Window Sheets. My solution was to add the stars to the front so I could hide the glue dots behind them.
And the bonus is I really loved the color combination. Black with Blushing Bride on white looks really elegant, especially with the sparkle from the glimmer paper.
I hope you like the card and I hope you found the review of adhesives helpful. Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to see on this blog. The chart below shows the other product used on this card.
