Glitter Lace Card Class for Kids at Art Glitter

Just wanted to share with you these great photos from a Glitter Lace Card Class for Kids held at Art Glitter this past week. This is a great lace pattern we found with puppies on it. You can see what a fun project this is for children, they loved it!

Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent Glitter: #91 Orange Crush, #197 Flax, #141 Magnolia, #270 Chesapeake, #94 Key Lime, #284 French Lilac

We started with a simple two-color lace card, just like the one Barbara Trombley demonstrates here:

We used Ripe Plum for the background and Orange Crush for the lighter forefront.

Then the children were instructed to go for it for the rest of the colors and boy did they!

Adding details with Designer Dries Clear adhesive gave the cards a three-dimensional look that really makes the card special.

They also added some details with Dazzlers. They really liked the Dazzlers!

Keller here is a master of color, what an excellent card! Who said glitter was for girls only!

Sadly, this is all we have left of this doggy lace pattern. If you find some more let us know! When looking for lace, make sure it is polyester, cotton will not come off the sticky paper – it is really sticky!

Hope this inspires you to try this project with your children/grandchildren. They really excel at it!
