I have seen people using clear glitter on patterned or stamped paper for a long time and it always looks so magical! Today I wanted to create some magic myself! I cut out a flower from the Vintage double sided paper in my stash. I think it's from DCWV (but don't quote me on that) and applied an even coat of Zig 2 Way glue. I then used my heat tool to dry the glue (making it repositionable). I sprinkled the glitter on the image and I love love love it! However, the camera did not pick up all the glittery goodness exactly like I wanted. Even so, the glitter took the vintage paper and made it look more vintage to me.
Here's the paper I used. Hopefully you can see the difference the glitter brings to it. The bow is tied with vintage seam binding. I plan on giving this card to my daughter when the time is just right!
