Customizing Brads/Bling Your Brads

1. Apply 2 ½” Tear-ific Tape to left and right sides of 6 ¾” x 4 ¾” white cardstock. Remove backing from the left side only.
2. Apply another piece of 2 ½” tape (big enough for the three heart shapes) to white cardstock. Die cut and remove the protective backings from each heart and stick down to the exposed sticky left side of card front. (These will act as masks).
3. Apply Sonic silver to the exposed area. Use glitter brush to remove excess glitter.
4. Remove the masks and apply Orchid Rose to the exposed tape.
5. Remove the backing from the right side of the card front. Apply two ¼” strips and one ¾” strip of Tear-ific tape as shown. Apply Reflection to the exposed sticky area.
6. Remove the backing of the two ¼” strips and apply Dogwood Rose glitter.
7. Remove the ¾” strip backing and apply Sonic Silver.
8. Cut and emboss the big heart from Glossy white cardstock. Apply the silver stickers.
9. Apply Versamark to chipboard word “Love”, heat emboss with Silver Lightning. Attach to top of heart with Dimensional Glue.
10. Make a piece of glittered ribbon using technique above with ½” Tape and Reflection glitter.
11. Heat emboss the heart brad with Silver Lightning and then heat emboss with Ultra Thick Clear (see tutorial above).
12. Assemble the card by attaching the ribbon with the brad to card front and the heart with Dimensional Dots as shown. Layer to glossy white card base.
