Designer’s Tip: Try placing a scrap piece of acetate over the Mega Flakes and burnish with a bone folder, to make it adhere better to the prepared surface, before removing the excess Mega Flakes. You can repeat the process of applying glue, heating and burnish with more Megaflakes to get better coverage, if needed.
- Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on top. Mat 6¼”x4¾” black suede on gold metallic paper with 1/8” border. Wrap ivory dotted sheer ribbon 1” from the left side and tie a bow at the bottom. Glue the piece to your card front.
- Follow the instructions supplied with the Stamp & Stick Gluepad to apply glue to the pad, then onto the stamp. Stamp onto 5”x4” black cardstock, and heat the glue stamped image with the heat gun until it is no longer shiny, about 15-20 seconds. Place the piece on your craft sheet and cover the image with Yorkshire Dales Megaflakes. Tap the flakes in place with your fingers, then burnish with a circular motion. Shake off the excess flakes, then use the Scoochy foam in a gentle pressure circular motion to burnish and remove the flakes from the image, continuing until the fine detail emerges in the image (do not over-burnish or it will remove the shine from the Megaflakes). Mat on Silver Linen with a 1/16" border and glue 1/8” from the upper left corner of the suede paper.
- Use the gluepad to apply glue all over 5½”x4½” white cardstock and heat set. Apply and burnish Manchester Tart Megaflakes to create a metal flake cardstock piece. Follow your die cutting machine manufacturer's instructions to cut “Merry Christmas” die-cuts from the piece (save the surrounding scrap cardstock). Place the “Merry Christmas” die-cuts in the snowflakes embossing folder and emboss. Emboss the saved scrap cardstock and save for your card inside. Glue the embossed die-cuts in places, as shown. Place baby bling onto the stamped image, as shown.
- Card inside: Mat 1½”x4½” black suede on gold metallic paper, and then on silver linen paper, both with 1/16" borders. Knot a length of ribbon and wrap ½” from the top of your piece, gluing the ends on the back. Glue the piece 1/8” from the left side of your card. Cut small embossed snowflakes from the saved metal flake cardstock piece and glue or foam tape in place, as shown. Place baby bling as shown.
