Glitter Inlay

I've got another Elizabeth Craft Designs glitter project for you.  Do you love glitter?  I know I sure do.  SO let's get some Silk Microfine Glitter out & let's get to it.
For the front of my card I used Flourish with Flowers to create an inlay, meaning it's set into my card & not glued on top of my card.  I die cut the Flourish with Flowers into my patterned paper & set the die cut aside - don't throw it away as you'll be needed little pieces from it.  I adhered Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock & die cut another Flourish with Flowers from that.  I also cut some labels from Lucy Label for my sentiment, I've added white gel pen around the green Lucy Label & even glittered hearts inlaid on the white Lucy Label.  The Ladybugs are cut from Black Velvet Adhesive Sheets & white covered with Double Sided Adhesive & Cool Silk Microfine Glitter colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  To finish off the front, I added some pink seam binding.

What you see in this photo is how I added the Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter by cutting the release sheet off ONLY on the two flowers.  I then dipped the flowers into the Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter, shook off the excess & gently polished with my finger.

Here I have removed the rest of the release sheet & applied Spring Peridot Silk Microfine Glitter all over, shook off the excess & polished gently with my finger.  So now I am ready to put my flower into the opening of my patterned paper.  Put Double Sided Adhesive or clear packing tape on the back side of the patterned paper to cover the opening, turn your paper over to the patterned side & inlay your die cut into the shape.  Now you will get the patterned paper die cut that you set aside & use tweezers to put all the little negative pieces back in their respective places....kind of like a puzzle.

I used Lucy Label to animate my sentiment & Lady Bugs Peel-Off Stickers & Lady Bugs die cuts.  I cut another Flourish with Flowers from Peridot Shimmer Sheetz to give my lady bugs something to crawl on.  To  hide the seams where the patterned paper & green meet, I used Transparent Glitter/Gold Glitter Peel-Off Stickers.

And finally a close up of all the glittery goodness that Silk Microfine Glitter can bring.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.  All comments are read & appreciated.
