Hi there, and thanks for dropping by today! Today I'm sharing another card using the Sparkle N Sprinkle Super Adhesive Sheets, two die cuts and some glitter.

To begin with, I stuck a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet on to a piece of white cardstock.  I then took the Sizzix Delicate Wings die and placed it face down on top of the second adhesive backing. Then the Merry Christmas Elizabeth Craft Design Die was placed face down along side the Dove, but it wasn't going to fit lengthwise, so I put a folded piece of cardstock between the two words and then ran it through my embossing machine.

I then protected the Merry from being cut (by putting the folded cardstock under that) before running "Christmas" through the machine.

I know you can see a slight indentation of the letters after the Merry and in front of Christmas, but the glitter will cover that.

Next, I took out (using an Exacto knife) the protective backing of little inserts of the Dove and the Merry Christmas:

Velvet Glitter Golden Wheat was then burnished into the sticky areas:

Then I removed the Dove's body and Cobalt Glaze was applied.

Lastly, I removed the rest of the adhesive backing, and applied Sparkling Snow Glitter to the background. This piece was cut to 3 3/4" x 5 and was then layered to a piece of blue cardstock that coordinated with the Cobalt Glaze. This was then layered to a glossy white card base. A piece of gold ribbon was tied in a knot at the top of the card and I used a little 1/8" Tear-ific Tape to hold down the ends.

... and that finishes my share for today. Hope I've inspired you to get out your dies and try something new with them.

Hope to see you back on Sunday for the SNS November Reveal, when we will be show casing our newest sets, and some more of the new Chunky embossing powders.

Till then,




  1. Striking work, love how you build up your card.

  2. Shona you are AMAZING, what a fabulous result. Thanks for the tutorial.

  3. Your card is so beautiful! Love the design.

  4. How pretty! It looks like in-laid glitter instead of inlaid die cutting! it's always fun to visit your blog, Shona, because you show the details so clearly, and great step-by-step tutorials! love, de

  5. This is gorgeous (no surprise at that, right?). Love the brilliant blue against that pristine white. I so appreciate you sharing the photos about the word die cutting, as I didn't know how to do that...so good to know how you did that. I know it takes time to do the photos & write-ups, along with sharing the wonderful results, but it does help so much to see it, as I am a visual learner. The idea of lifting the die cuts with the knife is something else I wouldn't have known to try either. Great work. TFS & Hugs.


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share in part of your day. I would love to hear what you think about my latest creation!
