2008-12-27 Fussy gluing technique and tutorial
You’ve heard of fussy cutting? What I’m showing today is what I call fussy gluing. I thought I’d show the tutorial on making stacked punches. Then I’ll show the finished card featuring the technique.
Here is the finished card with a close up of the same faux brads that I just made. After I finished gluing them to the card front I topped them with some crystal effects. This is easy to keep on the punch, becasue it’s been raised up from the card front by being a stacked punch.
Here is another punch that is on the finished card. This snow flake punch is also stacked up 4 layers. Then on top I added some more glue and sprinkled it with prisma glitter. Finally I glued it to the card after the glitter was added. Now that it was attached to the card I took wax paper and pressed down on top of the punch to make sure the glitter was affixed and also that the punch would stick firmly to the card.
And now the finished card. The only stamp that I used was from the Stampin Up set Sincere Salutations. I used a water color marker to only ink up the word “wishes”
The word “winter” is a cuttlebug alpha set called Olivia. It is fussy glued using a double stack of die cuts; then glued to the card.
I actually use fussy glueing on a regular basis. I hope you give fussy gluing a try.
