I apply the colors from lightest to dark, allowing the image to dry in between contrasting colors. Then, once dry I run the image through the Xyron sticker machine. I rub the backside of the sticker paper with my bone folder to push the glue into the dried glittered surface. It should then release easily and you can apply it to the designer paper.
The cardstock is Core'dinations and the dark panel was run through the Distressed Strip Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and then sanded. This paper is fun to sand and distress since the core color pops out and adds a fun contrast.
The circle was punched from SU!'s Always Artichoke cardstock, run through the cuttlebug, faux stitched, distressed and inked with SU!'s Chocolate Chip ink. The HB are from Cuttlebug's Tag Sale Alphabet. I hand lettered the happy birthday on them.
This card also is the Eagle Petroglyph Stamp from The Rubber Cafe. I stamped the image 8 times and then cut a 1 1/4 inch square from them. I folded them all into a kite shape making sure to orient them all the same. When putting into the medallion I noticed the flower shape pop out at me. I accented the lower beak of the eagle with a Melon At You Spica Glitter Pen for my leaves. I colored the area under his beak with an Orange At You Spica Glitter Pen. I put eyelets into the *eyes* of the eagle. This is the first time I've ever tried faux stitching on my medallion itself...I may have to try that again!
