INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Fold a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Spanish Moss cardstock in half to form an A2 card
  2. Cut a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of blue cardstock and adhere a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of double sided mounting paper to it, leaving a small blue edge showing on all sides
  3. Cut a 2-3/4" x 6" piece of white cardstock and adhere a 2-1/2" x 6" piece of double sided mounting paper to it, leaving a small white edge on one long side
  4. Pat VersaMark all over the back of both stencils
  5. Remove the release paper from the piece with the blue mat and carefully center the Hummingbird stencil on the sticky surface with the VersaMark side against the sticky surface, use a piece of release paper to press the stencil in place, there will be a small sticky edge around the image
  6. Apply the Lime glitter on the small edge one side at a time, then add China Blue and Lime micro glitters to the design, work in small sections at a time so you can tap off away from areas you want to protect, rub it in a little as you go
  7. Remove the release paper from the double sided mounting paper of the larger piece on white and carefully place the stencil on the sticky surface with the VersaMark side against the sticky surface, line up on one long side and the two ends, use a piece of release paper to press the stencil in place
  8. Apply the China Blue and Lime glitters to the design, work in small sections at a time so you can tap off away from areas you want to protect, rub it in a little as you go
  9. Turn one of the glittered images face down on a paper towel and carefully peel the paper off the stencil making sure to keep the stencil flat on the table, apply Crystal micro glitter to the background, tap off extra, rub gently, repeat with the other image
  10. Cut along one edge of the Lace stencil image to create a scalloped edge, trim length to 5 1/2", adhere a 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip of blue to the uncut edge leaving a small amount of blue showing, adhere to the card front near the bottom
