Step 1:  Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Pixie Dust cardstock in half to form an A2 card
Step 2: Cut a 4 1/2" x 6 1/4"  piece of Double Sided Mounting Paper (MPDS), adhere one side to a 4 3/4" x 6 1/2" piece of white cardstock
Step 3:  Pat the back of the Big Dots stencil with VersaMark ink, get a good coating on entire stencil, remove the release paper from the MPDS and place the stencil ink side down over the sticky paper, use release paper to press the stencil firmly against the sticky paper
Step 4:   Start with one color of glitter and apply a small amount in a hole, rub it in gently, carefully tap off extra glitter, keep working one color at a time until you have filled all the holes with colored glitter tapping off between colors, lightly brush off any extra glitter from the stencil
Step 5:  Place the stencil face down on a clean paper towel, carefully pull the paper off the stencil, keeping the stencil flat on the table, sprinkle the background with Crystal Micro Glitter, set aside
Step 6: Stamp the Easter Egg Juggle design on a 4" x 4" piece of white cardstock with the Tuxedo Black ink, color with Copic Markers
Step 7:  Use Fitted Frames set A to die cut the image, cut a matching frame from Mint Julep, adhere the two layers together
Step 8: Cut two pieces 1 3/4" x 4" from the glittered Big Dots, mount each piece on a 2" x 4 1/4" piece of Mint Julep, adhere near the top and bottom of the card front
Step 9: Adhere a 1/2" x 4 1/4" strip of Pixie Dust to a 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Mint Julep, adhere them to the center area of the card between the two glittered areas
Step 10:  Use foam tape to attach the Easter Egg Juggle image to the card front
