Directions- Fold fullsheet of cardstock in half , place pattern with straps on the fold and trace around with a pencil , then cut out card . Run card thru Xyron machine , with the side facing down that you want as the front of your card . Carefully peel paper off to reveal the sticky . Then take your chosen piece of lace , and lay it carefully over the sticky and carefully smooth to make sure it is stuck to the card . ( you don't want the lace to fall off when you do the glitter ) and (for this card I used 2 strips of lace to cover the whole card ) Choose 2 colors of ultra fine glitter , preferably 1 light and 1 darker color. Take the darkest of the 2 colors first to cover the entire laced area with it . Dump the excess glitter back into the bottle . Then carefully pull the lace off the card , then you will see the first layer of glitter . Now cover the entire card with the 2nd color of glitter , and put the excess glitter back into the bottle . Now you are ready to embelish you card however you want .Glitter colors used on this card are Pastel glitter blue and Jewel glitter western blue , both are ultra fine glitter .
Glitter does not show very well in the scan , it looks much prettier IRL !

Oh my Gosh!!! I love this! I cracked up laughing when I first saw it! I MUST CASE this!! It will be a while before I will have time to, but I'm putting it into my favorites for later use. By the way... Where did you get a pattern like this???
