How To Guide - Step 1

Die cut THREE trees, out of white card, from the Terrific Trees Die Collection.

Lift up the little tabs.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Squeeze a little of the Izink Nacre Glitter Paint on to your craft mat. Add a little water and use a paint brush to "dab" the paint on to your three die cut trees. Be careful not to glue down any of the raised tabs. 

Set to one side to dry.

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the Penguin stamp, with the Memento ink and stamp on to white card. 

Use your Gossip alcohol pens to colour it in. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Squeeze a little of the Nacre Glitter Paint on to your craft mat and as before, add a little water then paint the bobble and fur, on the Christmas hat.

Set to one side to dry.  

How To Guide - Step 5

Cut white card to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4".

Place one of the circle nesting dies (approx 3 1/4" in diameter), towards the top right of the card and run it through your die cutting machine. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Cut another piece of white card slightly smaller, so it will sit nicely, behind your aperture card.

Swipe your Distress ink pads in from the top right of the card, ensuring the inked area will be visible through the circle aperture once it's in place. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Splatter water over your inks, wait a few seconds then mop up the excess water with a paper towel.

Dry your inky panel and set to one side.

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere red liner tape around the circle aperture, on the REVERSE side. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Peel off the backing and affix your acetate in place, over the aperture. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere double-sided foam tape/pads around the aperture, so there are NO GAPS! Also around the edges of your card, so it won't "bow or sag" when adhered to the inked card. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Wipe the anti-static bag liberally over the inked panel. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Pour your sequins/ glitter FLAT, on to the inked panel, using your aperture as a guide to keep it all within the aperture circle ONLY. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Peel off all the backing tape, from the double-sided foam tape/pads.

Wipe the acetate and the inner edges of the foam tape, with your anti-static bag, as this will help to prevent all the sequins and glitter from "sticking". 

Now carefully line up and adhere this on to the glittered card, making sure you rub your finger firmly round the edge of the aperture. This ensures that the foam tape is stuck down and creates an effective seal. If not....glitter everywhere!!!   

How To Guide - Step 14

Adhere this on to the front of your pink, top folding card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Use both wet glue and foam pads, to adhere your die cut Penguin and trees, as required to the left of your aperture. 

How To Guide - Step 16

Squeeze a little of the Nacre Glitter Paint on to your craft mat, add a little water and add it below your Penguin, to "ground" him. 

Set to one side.

How To Guide - Step 17

Ink up the sentiment stamp with Onyx Black Versafine and stamp on to white card. 

Cut it in to strips. 

How To Guide - Step 18

Adhere around the shaker aperture, as required, to finish.
