So far, it’s been a Krafty year indeed (sorry, couldn’t resist!). Is there any color that Kraft doesn’t enhance? Today’s card features an explosion of color via a handful of eyelash yarns. The strands are slippery and very fine in texture, so I knew that once my friend Lynn pulled the card from the envelope, they’d be in a tangled mess. Enter the fabulous Quickie Glue Pen from Sakura: after gathering the fibers as they emerged from the top of the tag and tying them with a silver floss bow, I glued down the back of the tied bunch with a glue dot. I then drew several short curved strokes above the tag with the glue pen and laid the fibers on them. Voila! End of the much-dreaded Fiber Flop!
