Polished Silk Daisies

Today's card features the Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitters and Foundations papers.

Cover a piece of coconut white card with a sheet of adhesive film. The film has protective backing sheets either side of the adhesive, one which feels more like paper and the other which is more shiny. It usually doesn't matter which side you peel off to stick to the card but this time you need to make sure the shiny backing is left on the adhesive and the backing sheet on the opposite side is removed. 

Die cut an assortment of flowers using the Spellbinders Jewelled Flowers die set, from one end of the card. Peel off the shiny protective backing layer from the adhesive on one of the die cut flowers (keep this shiny backing to one side) and pour Silver Chrome polished silk glitter on. Tap off the excess and pour it back into the pot. Polish the glitter with your finger for a few seconds. Repeat this process with the other die cut flowers using Western Blue and Penny Copper polished silk glitters. 

Trim a rectangle from the remaining piece of card. Peel off the backing paper and place the shiny die cut flowers you put to one side earlier onto the sticky adhesive. Pour Silver Chrome polished silk glitter onto the card and polish as with the flowers earlier. 

Remove one or two of the shiny flowers and pour Western Blue polished silk glitter onto the card. Polish this colour into the card. Remove the remaining shiny flowers and pour Penny Copper polished silk glitter onto the card and polish as before. 

Layer this onto white card, and co-ordinating backing papers, as shown.

Trim with a bow and your message then add a few dazzlers to the flower centres.

Happy crafting!
