Step 1: Cut Splash cardstock (Bazzill) to 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Score at 4.25 inches and fold the card. Lay 40 MM Be Creative tape on the card front ¼ inch from the fold. Turn card over and trim excess tape. Punch flowers and fern images from cardstock. Remove tape backing with tweezers.
Step 2: Place flower and fern images alternately on the exposed tape using the tweezers. It is VERY important that you do not touch the exposed tape with your fingertips.
Step 3: Use tape backing to press the cardstock strip firmly and evenly to the tape.
Step 4: Apply Black Microfine Glitter to the tape. Brush off excess glitter. Burnish with your fingertip by rubbing the glittered area firmly.
Step 5: Use Be Creative Glitter Magnet to clean excess glitter from your workspace. Note: Do not use Glitter Magnet on masks or paper.
Mailing Tip: Place card inside plastic sleeve before the paper envelope to ensure your card arrives in perfect condition. The humidity in differing climates can affect the adhesive slightly.
