Glitter and lace artist trading cards


Last night my local ATC group met for our monthly swap. The theme was glitter and lace - it's a technique we learned where you use lace to mask off a pattern on a sheet of double-stick adhesive.

I started with a 1.5" Aleene's Tacky Dot, pressed a section of the lace on top and sprinkled the blue glitter. Shake off the excess glitter, slowly peel off the lace, then sprinkle the yellow glitter to fill up all the remaining adhesive, and tap off the excess. Use the plastic liner from the Tacky Dot to rub the glitter down so it stays put.

Then I stamped around the glitter with Perfect Pearls and spritzed the card with Perfect Pearls Mist. The narrower top card is glued to a backer card that has a strip of aluminum tape on one edge, and I accented the design with a mini dahlia embellishment.

Here are the ATCs that I got from the group using the same technique - lots of fun!
