    INSTRUCTIONS:

    Trim a sheet of orange printed paper to 7¾” square and edge with glue using a chisel-tip glue pen then cover in Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card blank using dries-clear glue. Trim a sheet of patterned paper to 7½” square and affix to the card using foam pads. Trim a sheet of Crystal White pearl card to 7” square and edge in Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using foam pads. Cut another piece of printed paper to 6¾” square and edge in Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using dries-clear glue. Finally, trim a piece of patterned paper to 6¼” square and affix to the card using foam pads.

    2 Die-cut the Fancy Decagon die from Crystal White pearl card. Stamp out the ‘sending you a little sunshine’ sentiment using the clear embossing inkpad, then heat-emboss using Polished Gold Superfine embossing powder. Die-cut the next Fancy Decagon die up from orange printed paper, apply a thick border of dries-clear glue and cover in Mexican Sunrise Sparkelicious glitter. Once dry, add both layers to the card using foam pads. Infill the word ‘sunshine’ on the sentiment using dries-clear glue and cover in Mexican Sunrise Sparkelicious glitter. Add sequins to the background.


    3 Die-cut three large, three medium, and three small flowers from Watercolour Washes vellum. Shape by creating a valley fold down the centre. Layer a size of each together using 3D glue gel, then add dots of glue to the centre and cover in Mexican Sunrise Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using 3D glue gel.


    4 Die-cut three stamens from Crystal White pearl card. Add dots of glue to the edges and cover in Lemon Sorbet Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the centre of the flowers. Add a rhinestone to the middle. Die-cut some foliage from white cardstock and colour using Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink. Carefully tuck in behind the flowers. To finish, add a few pearls to the corner.
