Attaching embellies

I have been asked so many times how I  attach flowers and other embellishments to my cards.  I use Crafters Pick Incredibly Tacky Glue, I could not make a card without it!!

Remove the waste wire from the flowers as close to the flower as possible (I use this waste to twirl around a pokey tool and add these curls to the flower arrangement).  Then just apply a dollop of the Crafters Pick glue (which is really thick and grabs almost right away even though it’s not dry – and it dries clear).

I also use it for punched leaves, just a little is needed for these.  Then I poke them in with a pair of tweezers where I have gaps in the arrangement.

I also use it to attach charms and anything else to the front of the card.

And the finished card

    PS: Do you recommend Amazon for the Collal Glue and the Crafter's Pick? Also where do you buy your Nenah Ultra Smooth Solar White? I can't wait to try it.
    Well done!
