    Your card is gorgeous Melissa! I usually avoid loose glitter like the plague, but it’s such a pretty touch on your leaves that I just might have to get over my phobia and try that. 😉

    What a great card! May I ask what adhesive to use to stick the vellum to the card stock without showing?

    I use Beacon 3-in-1 liquid adhesive. The secret I guess, for me anyway, is to apply the glue behind stamped images, embellishments, etc, so that it doesn’t show from beneath. If you use those items, you can hide the adhesive and still achieve a strong hold.
    Thanks for your kind words.

    Since I am new to card making, I don’t know much so I don’t know how to do the steps involved in “stamping”, cutting out, adding the glitter, etc….some blogs show exactly how each step is being done —- wish that would’ve been the case here. Each step was not shown — don’t know how to make the marks on the leaves, etc…
