Mother’s Day and Homemade Glitter Glue

Mothers are the inventors of ingenuity and creativity when it comes to pulling a rabbit out of a hat.   Whether it’s molding cardboard for that last minute science project at school, or turning ten dollars worth of groceries into a fancy meal for four!.  This card pays homage to our wonderful, creative mothers who are masters of everything!  Hello, Terri here, sharing foiling tips plus, a short video with a homemade glitter glue recipe.

Recipe for Homemade Glitter Glue

The mixture I’m using is approximately 1/8 tsp of fine or extra fine glitter.  Mix with approximately 1/4 tsp of clear glue from the Dual Tip Glue Pen.   Apply using the small tip of a paintbrush handle, not the brush itself.  The mix was enough to glitter all my leaves and some of the blossom centers.  Adjust the recipe to suit your own needs.

Look For Details To Embellish

The 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit and gold foil are the perfect accent for my sentiment.  Look for tiny details to embellish your die cuts and paper.   I’ve added little pops of gold foil to my blossom centers with Adhesive Dots Micro, along with tiny dots of handmade glitter glue.   The hand colored leaves are also peppered with dotted glitter glue so you can Wear Your Adhesive On The Outside!

Wrap it Up

Adhere your papers with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.   I love the ultra stickiness of the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill cartridge.  The finishing touch is to pop up those blooms with the new 3D Foam Circles White Mix.   Layers and dimension add so much to any card.
