Step Two: Adhere a piece of clear packing tape to the reverse side
Step Three: Turn to front side, trim away excess, and sprinkle with glitter
Simple, easy, and cheap way to add some sparkle behind die cuts with open places!
I chose a die cut from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media Thinlints set. After stamping it with the crackle background (Stampin’ Up), I used my ink applicator to apply some Fossilized Amber Distress Ink around the edges before adding my Spring Pale Yellow Glitter (Art Accentz). Across the bottom I added a strip of (green) Petaloo lace and tied some natural colored burlap string in a bow over the top. I then added a tiny clay flower to the center of my bow.
For my background, I embossed a piece of (pastel) Core’dinations Cardstock with the One World embossing folder from Couture Creations and sanded it to reveal the inner core. The daisy and bee were freebies from the Graphics Fairy as well as the bee image I used inside the card. The bee is popped up with foam tape for extra dimension.
I used my Circle and Blossom Nestabilities (Spellbinders) to frame my beehive and stamped a cute sentiment from the Fun Border Stamp set from Recollections.
