Spring Fun With Xyron, Miss Katie, and ...

Welcome to the Xyron, Miss Kate's Cuttables Blog Hop!
Can't wait for someone to WIN BIG this week.

I have a step by step tutorial for this card I created and it's a fun one.
 Spring spring spring, bring on SPRING!
Cut Your background shape using Miss Kate's Cuttable Background Shape
with the CutCardStock Metallics. Be sure to set die cut machine to deep
cuts, and lengthen the blade as well. 
 Using Xyron Adhesive Dots 3/8 assemble the flowers,
leaving the middle dots off. 
 Alcohol ink and glitter flower centers. Allow to dry then use 
Xyron Adhesive Dots 3/16 to adhere to the top of the flower. 
Use alcohol ink and ink crystal mesh (Connie Crystal)
Take Clear Scraps Frame- alcohol ink and glitter. 
Stamp sentiment (Avocado Arts) onto CutCardStock.
Cut into pennant shape. 

 Use Xyron Adhesive Dots 3/16 dots to adhere frame- 
as you can see you can't even see them!
Now assemble card using Xyron Adhesive Dots 3/8 YES
the whole card! :) 
 I took the Xyron Adhesive Dots 3/16 and 
rolled them to adhere the punched butterflies :) 
Isn't this Curious Metallic card stock super cool too? 
I set my blade on deep cut and it cut wonderfully! 
I love how it goes hand in hand with the cuts and the beautiful shimmer. 
He sure to HOP this week to Miss Kate's Cuttables:
