Craft Fantastic Cards Anyone?

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Grapevine, TX. I got to meet our very amazing team members at our Craft Fantastic Booth, and let me tell you, these ladies are nothing short of amazing! If our travel schedule brings us to your area, please come and see us!
So after a very busy papercrafting weekend I thought I would bring to you all some ideas of how to use your Craft Fantastic on a card . I will be working with an A2 size card and some various papers so you can see some different ideas.
First I am using our small glass rounds and our Fantastic Glaze and Glue. A note to all you paper crafters, this glue is really amazing even on your other projects. It really has a fabulous hold and I will show you more on this in upcoming blog posts. Now I wanted to see how different papers would look under our glass. So just as you do if you are making a jewelry piece, put your glaze and glue on the flat side of your jewelers glass and adhere to your paper. When the glass can't be wiggled any more it is dry and you can go ahead and trim around the excess. Always trim around your glass at a 45 degree angle. This will let you get a closer cut along the edge of the glass.

Now I tried several different things. The pink is shimmer paper, the pink with a pattern is pattern paper, the two images that have words on them are from our Inspiration Image Sheet and the turquoise one is Glitsy paper.

A note, it took a lot longer for the glue to set on the Glitsy paper then it did on all the other papers. Once these were all dry and trimmed I used them on the front of a card that I was working on. As a paper crafter for many years, I have a supply of paper flowers. I decided to use my glass circles as centers for the flowers. You can see the different pieces on the card. Also, I decided to use our wonderful bling for a flower center too! So which is your favorite? What do you think?
