Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you my sparkly Festive card for my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs. Let me take you through the process of how to apply your glitter to your die cut with a double sided sheet of adhesive.

Step 1: Attach adhesive sheet to White cardstock by releasing one side of the protective layer. You should now have a sheet of paper that has cardstock on one side and the adhesive film for the sticky sheet on other side with its protective layer still on.

Step 2: Place the protective layer side up on die cutting machine and place your die on top and cut.

Step 3: Once cut, glue a fussy cut oval to the back of your die cut. This makes the design POP.

Step 4: Rub an anti static bag over your paper, this way the glitter will only adhere to the adhesive. Now start to cut into the protective layer and lift off the film to reveal the sticky parts of the Holly. Start rubbing green glitter into the area with your finger.

Step 5: Repeating the  process to lift adhesive film again with your craft knife to reveal the sticky parts where you want to put the red glitter.

This process takes a little while but is a great way to apply different colours of glitter without them mixing.

Have a lovely weekend.
