What adhesive do you use for the intricate doily die cuts? I find that glue is really messy, using Xyron leaves the adhesive all over the cut out. What is good to use?

Have you tried a glue pen? I know they dry fast, but if you are super super quick or only stick down a piece at a time..

I have tried the glue pen, it does dry fast, but it doesn't adhere for a very long period. The die cut I find will come off in a short period of time.

I use the adhesive sheets that Sizzix sells (because I got them a long time ago), but you can also get them from SU!

I use my mono Multi in the green bottle for die cuts like this. I put a series of small dots of glue on key parts of the die cut. I let the glue dry, before I put the die cut on my card. That way, I don't get sticky glue oozing through the gaps of the die cut. Finally, I put a blank sheet of paper on top and rub really well to make sure the die cut is firmly in place.

I use the temporary Xyron - it is much easier to remove the extra sticky and will become permanent after awhile.

I use a glue pen or dump some Tombow mono on my SU silicone mat and use a tooth pick to pick up little dots of glue. I make less of a mess with the mono and no glue around the edges of the die cut. After I apply the die to the card, I flip the card over and burnish with my hand to make sure all the edges are stuck down. The mono is less expensive IMHO.
