Glittery Lace Technique







I made this card yesterday for Deb's Favorite Techniques Swap. The technique is glittery lace. It is really quite simple to do and the finished product is so sparkly and gorgeous! (The picture doesn't do it justice.)


A friend of mine - Jessie - taught me how to do this. Isn't she clever?!?!? She loves to make those little ATC cards and is so very very creative.


To do this technique, follow these simple steps:



  • Cut white cardstock to size and run it through a Xyron machine to complete cover with adhesive.

  • Adhere a piece of lace fabric to the sticky side of the cardstock. Sprinkle on fine glitter - any color you choose - and shake off excell. Then remove the lace.

  • Sprinkle on a second color of fine glitter. This will fill in the places where the lace was before.

Very simple!!!
