bead card

i have finally finished the card i was making when i ran out of beads. i'm quite surprised how quick it was when i used the tacky glue that i bought a few days ago - before that i was using a glue gun. i had decided i was getting fed up with my glue gun as it always seems to go everywhere and make my work look a mess!! i saw the tacky glu on a craft demo recently and when i saw it in the shop when i was stocking up on my beads - i just had to get some!! i think it will be using as often as i can as it really speed the process up of adhering the beads to the card.

items used are:
  • cream glittered card from stash
  • white heart patterend textured paper from LMC
  • pearlescent pink coorugated card from LMC
  • 2 die cut strips used as 'ribbon' from LMC
  • a die cut butterfly from LMC
  • beads on each wing of the butterfly from stash
  • sequins with gems in the middle, both from LMC
  • beads from stash and LMC
the design for this card was in a issue of LMC, but i had run of the card that they had used, so used my own glittered cardstock. i don't it makes much difference as you can only see the inside and back of the card as obviously the rest is covered up!!
