Attention Getter Holiday Magic Card

The second card of the three samples for October's stamp of the month (available until October 31, 2011) features the Attention Getter Pattern from Wishes.

This card features prisma glitter stocking top, and clear sparkles.  I kept this card nice and simple too because the colors are so vibrant.  No alternative cards though.  I liked this one just the way it is.

How do you apply prisma glitter?

1) Apply bonding memories glue to the surface you wish to be glittered.  I used the narrow tipped glue here although I could have used the larger tipped glue -- go figure.
2) While the glue is still wet (and blue), tap the glitter onto the glue.  A little goes a long way.  An alternative method is to dump the glitter onto the surface.  That works too.
3) Up end the image to remove excess glitter.  If you are applying a lot of glitter, I'd  recommend the craft tray.  Since I only applied glitter to the one image, I dumped the excess onto a large piece of paper.  I have to warn you, the glitter likes to stick to surfaces, thus my tapping glitter onto the surface in step 2.
4) Flick the back of the image with your finger to remove any glitter that didn't come off in step 3.  You'll be glad you do this step because quite a bit of glitter will still come off.
5) Enjoy the shimmer!
