I think so. I just know that too little and not only will the sand/glitter not stick, but it will look skimpy. Too much and it will be clumpy and dry dark.

I went to the trouble of getting some dirt from my yard, sifting it to get it as fine as possible (it was for a narrow band), heating in the oven to kill the cooties & critters, only to have most come off the double sided tape (it looked like a dusty strip)

That's when I tried the glue and sand (another card). I figured (rightly) that the glue would hold more "stuff". I really didn't use a lot (maybe 1/8" high, spread around with my fingers)... but Geezy Wheezy! It acted like cement when dry (even though I smoothed it down). I'd say you'd need more than just smearing some glue with your finger, but not as much as comes out of the glue bottle top, if you were to make lines over the area and smooth it down a little. Does this make sense?
