Valentine's Day - Glitter Hearts!

Hello friends
Happy Valentine's Day!
Today I thought I would revisit a tutorial I did using Spellbinders dies
and Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Creative Sheets...
and a fair amount of glitter!
Select a die, a card creator die is best for this technique  –
I used Botanical Swirls.
CEmberson - Glitter 2
Remove the backing sheet from a 3D Foam Creative Sheet (keep to one side)
and stick onto a piece of white card.
CEmberson - Glitter 3
On the other side, position your die template and
run through your die cutting machine to cut – no need to emboss.
CEmberson - Glitter 4
This is how it will look.
CEmberson - Glitter 5
Begin to remove certain sections of the layer sheet.
CEmberson - Glitter 6
I chose to reveal the leaves and swirls, leaving the background in place.
CEmberson - Glitter 7
Cover with glitter and then tap off the excess. 
CEmberson - Glitter 8
Using the backing sheet you put to one side,
lay over the glittered surface and burnish lightly with a bone folder.
CEmberson - Glitter 9
You can then remove the remainder of the top layer and cover with a different colour glitter.
CEmberson - Glitter 11
Again tap off the excess, burnish and your sheet is completely decorated.
CEmberson - Glitter 12
I then chose to die cut with Spellbinders Classic Hearts.
CEmberson - Glitter 13
My finished card.

CEmberson - Glitter 15
This would work with many die designs and glitter colours.

Enjoy your Valentine's day.
Take care friends.
