Glittered Peace Dove with Cheery Lynn

Hi there, 

Shona here, and I am so excited and honored to be part of the Dies R Us Design Team. My first card is also a first for me - no stamps! I used only two dies and then sparkled things up with three velvet glitters.

Here are the two dies that I used:

First I layered a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet onto white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Peace Frame. Then I gently removed the protective backing of the outside of the frame, peeling and pulling up slowly, leaving a sticky surface where the letters and scrolling are.

The sticky exposed surface was applied with Purple Fig microfine glitter. This was burnished in using my finger tool!

Once glittered, I layered this to a gold mirror cardstock base.

With the help of the Spellbinder All in one tool, I picked out the "background".

Microfine 24kt Gold was applied to the sticky adhesive. Here you can see where I missed a couple of little areas, so I picked those out with my tool and reapplied the gold glitter.

Next I ran the dove through my Big Shot with a scrap of the Super Adhesive Sheet layered to white cardstock. After removing the protective backing from the adhesive, I applied my third velvet glitter - Cloud Nine. A green Copic was used to color over the glitter for the olive branch.

The card front was attached to a glossy white background and the dove was attached to the bottom with mounting tape to finish off my card for today.
