Designer Tip: 1) Place your card with the fold at the top and cover with Christmas Lace burgundy/ivory dots paper. Cut a 6 1/2"x4" Christmas Lace green stripes paper and glue it centered across the card. Ink the edges black. Place Silver Jewel Border Dazzles on the edges of the green paper as shown. 2) Cut a 6 1/2"x2 1/4" double-sided adhesive. Peel off one side of the backing, place it on white cardstock, and trim the cardstock edges evenly. Peel the remaining backing from the adhesive. Carefully place the narrow lace centered across the adhesive and press in place (if you have a plastic page protector, it is helpful to place it on top and press the lace down well, then remove the plastic; this will help keep the adhesive clean). 3) Sprinkle the lace/adhesive with basic black microfine glitter and burnish it well into the adhesive. Tap off the excess and burnish it again. Repeat until no more glitter taps off. 4) Carefully pull up the lace from the adhesive and set it aside. Sprinkle with Peony Pink glitter and burnish it well and tap off the excess as you did in step 2. 5) Glue the glittered lace motif across the card, 3/4" from the top. Layer the Christmas Lace Paper Tole "LOVE, Joy, Peace" embellishment together with foam tape and glue centered on the card, 1/2" from the bottom. Place Silver Jewel Dazzles as shown. Use 1/4" wide silver glimmer ribbon to tie a bow. Zot the bow on the card as shown.
