Here is a quick glance at how I made my card:

 I used the Swirly Butterfly die for my main image.

I die cut my double sided adhesive sheet which I had adhered to a piece of lightweight card stock.

I used tweezers to remove the smaller pieces from the die cut.  Sometimes, I use a paper piercer.

I ran my die cut through my adhesive machine to make it easier to adhere to my card front.

I peeled of the top protective liner to reveal the double sided adhesive.

I sprinkled on the ultra fine glitter and burnished it in using a bone folder

I colored my glittered die cut with Copic Markers and then adhered it to my banner which would then be attached to my card front.

Here is a close up of the glittered and colored die cut.


Be sure to give this technique a try.  If you don't have Copic markers, you could just use ultra fine colored glitter to make your die cut pop.  As a matter of fact....I think I'll try that next.

Now off you go to Lynn's blog.  And if you are collecting secret words (you know you are!) mine is :

Happy hopping!!

See you right back here tomorrow.
