I had an accidental discovery last week when making a card. I first used the 2-way glue pen to adhere the vellum, but when I put the vellum on the cardstock, the glue showed through very badly. I quickly pulled the vellum up hoping I could salvage the card.

As I was sitting there thinking about what to do, I remember the many ways to use 2-way glue. One of them is to put glue on both surfaces you want to adhere to each other and allow it to dry, then put them together. Then I thought.....hey....I just did that. I put the vellum back on because by that time the glue was dry. I think it turned out great:

You can see the glue on the top piece a little because I was impatient while waiting for it to dry.

So, that's my new invention...glue kissing. Put 2-way glue on your vellum in light squiggles around the edges. Put the vellum down where you want to glue it and pick it immediately back up. That way you "kiss" the glue exactly where you want it to be. Wait for the glue to dry and put it back!

Not a genius idea, remember, this was the result of a screw-up!! Woo hoo!
