Cut the white card as follows:
Piece A – 5” x 12” (12.5cm x 30.5cm); score at 6” to create the card base.
Piece B – 5 ¾ “ x 4 ¾ “ (14.5cm x 12cm)
Piece C – 5 ½ “ x 4 ½ “ (13.5cm x 11cm)
Piece D – 3 ½ “ x 2” (8.5cm x 5cm)
Top Tip: Use low tack tape to hold the die in position for cutting.
Attach the double-sided sheet to the card piece B. From the centre of this piece B and the front of Piece A, die cut the rectangle from the Frames & Tags Ava set. Save the central rectangle piece!
From the centre of the front of Piece A, die cut the rectangle from the Frames & Tags Ava set.
Top tip! Work over a piece of scrap paper so that excess Glitterbitz can easily be returned to the pot.
Remove the backing from the piece B rectangle frame and cover with Lavender Glitterbitz. Remove the backing from the central rectangle and cover with Frosty Sparkle Glitterbitz.
To create the shaker pocket:
Use double-sided tape to attach a piece of acetate to the back of the glittered rectangle frame. Build up a wall of foam tape around the edge of the central aperture, with no gaps. Carefully sprinkle a mix of Sea Spray and Lilac Shine Holographic Glitterbitz on to the central acetate. Secure another piece of acetate over the top. Use foam pads to secure the panel to the card front, aligning the central aperture.
Top tip! To align the panel: open the card, lay the panel upside down in line with the aperture, apply glue and carefully close the card to secure in place.
Glue the Frosty Sparkle panel to the inside of the card in exact alignment with the aperture.
Cover Piece C with pearl lustre gilding polish. Die cut the flourish frame and rectangle from the Ava set from this piece. Cover Piece D with purple mist gilding polish. Die cut the ‘Congrats’
