Have a coffee filter spread open on your table when you use glitters or embossing powders. It will catch the excess and make it easier to siphon particles back into its bottle. Coffee filters can be resued multiple times.

1. Cut a card base using shaped die (if desired), or regular rectangular shape card. Set aside.
2. Then cut a “window” panel. Next cut a third, narrower “ring” or rectangle shape, and glue that piece to the first window panel. (this will provide dimension. if different colors are used, it will also give a little bit of color to the raised “ring”).
3. Semi-transparent glitters will allow some of the cardstock color to show through, so choose your colors carefully in this regard.
4. After the two shaped “window” panels are adhered, paint a ray of glue across the white and yellow panels and coat with Sunny Daze glitter. Leave a space, and paint another ray of glue, covering it with more Sunny Daze, and so forth, leaving spaces between each ray. Allow to dry thoroughly.
5. In the remaining spaces, go back and paint rays for the Orange Crush glitter. Allow to dry.
6. Paint Brushable Glue lightly on edge of window, on top of the rays. Coat with Blue Laser glitter. I painted two scallops at a time, coated with glitter, and painted two more scallops, and so forth.
7. Lightly paint brass charm with a VersaMarker. Dip into By The Lake embossing powder and heat set. By lighting applying the VersaMarker, some of the metallic brass will be able to show through, providing a distressed look, even though the EP is creamy and glittery. If desired, completely coat the charm with VersaMark, and dredge with EP, then heat set.
8. Stamp sentiment with same embossing powder and punch out with round punch.
9. Smooch some VersaMark on a swatch of white cardstock and dredge with embossing powder. When cooled, punch out with scalloped punch. Now the scallop punched background, the embossed sentiment, and the charm all coordinate, and add just a touch of creamy glitz.
10. Stamp Stained Glass Boat on white cardstock and color with your favorite medium. Cut out the oval shaped stamped image. Cover with a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet (or 2.5” Tear-ific Tape).
11. After trimming the Super Adhesive Sheet, pull off protective cover, and apply clear micro beads. Rub them in well. They will not come loose once adhered.
12. Place beaded image in the center of the card base and hold the glittered panel over the image to determine exactly where you would like the image to appear in the window. Hold image in place, set glitter panel down, and draw around the edge of the stamped image panel onto the card base.
13. Lift the stamped image up, and adhere with glue or very strong tape, by replacing it within the outline you just drew.
14. To assemble card, loop charm into twine. Wrap twine around glittered panel and tie in bow. Apply dimensionals to back of glittered panel. Center glittered panel over stamped image and card base.
