I cut a piece of white cardstock the approx size I wanted (about 1/4 larger on all sides than the stencil design area) which I covered completely with Sookwang tape. I used 2 pieces of 2.5" wide tape, sticking the first one down, removing the release paper and overlapping the second piece, so there would be no gaps in the tape. Lay my stencil on top. Randomly sprinkled the Ritz Micro Fine glitter "Royal Blue" (lighter blue), "Blue Teal" (dark blue), and a touch of the "Black". Rubbed and merged them with my finger till they were really nicely blended and stuck to the tape. 

PS don't put a lot of glitter down (you can always add more), since when you have all three colors working together, you won't be able to put that back in the jar.

Tip: have some small empty plastic containers to put these mixed glitters into. Makes nice combinations for later use.

Now this is VERY IMPORTANT. Make sure to clean the stencil and glitter area free from ALL loose glitter. Brush off most of it, then use a paper towel that you lightly misted with water, to remove the rest.


Remove stencil as per instructions, then sprinkle on Cool Highlight and rub that in.

Trim to size and layered the glitter art onto white cardstock which was first run through the Cuttlebug with the D'Vine Swirl. Then mounted that to a Bazzill black cardstock the same size as my main card which you can't see and is white.

Rubber stamped the trees (Inkadinkado "Trees & Leaves" #98781) with Versafine black and embossed with detail black on white cardstock. Trimmed leaving a minuscule border of white then layered that to the black Bazzill cardstock and then onto a piece of mat board to raise it from the card. (I don't like using pop dots). Edged the mat board with a black Zig marker.

Rubber stamped the "Silent Night" (Quietfire Design "Xmas 2009") with the black, and black embossed on the pearlized white paper. Mounted to the black Bazzill.


REMOVING STENCIL FROM TAPE: The tape is very strong and there is a real resistance when you are removing it. Turn stencil down with paper facing up. Peel off the edge until you get the separation happening, then using the ruler to keep the stencil flat, pressing down on the ruler as you gently remove the paper. Keep moving the ruler so it's very close to the separation between paper and stencil until the paper is totally separated. It will curl, but that's OK, it will be adhered to another piece of cardstock later.
