Glitter and Scor-Tape Tutorial

Today I thought I would show you a fun way to make a butterfly for a card or tag. For my project, I used Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime. The diecut is from Donna Salazar/Spellbinders. I also added a bunch of layers of UTEE on my tag and stamped into it using a Tim Holtz stamp.

Step 1) Use score tape to cover a piece of cardstock and cut this out with your die.

Step 2) Since this is kind of thick, your center cuts won't pop out as easy. This is good, because we don't want them to at this point.

Step 3) Glue your die cut to a second piece of cardstock

Step 4) Peel away the design elements for your first color of glitter.

Step 5) Add your first glitter color and make sure it covers the areas you like.

Step 6) Add your next color (after removing the paper backing from the Scor-tape)

Step 7) Add your final color of glitter. Use a glue pen to add glue to any missing spots and reapply glitter.
