Instructions: Take a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white card base and ink the edges lightly with Seedless preserve and Dusty Concord Distress inks. Take a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock and ink it softly using Mustard Seed Distress ink and large oval makeup blending brush. Start from slightly left of the center and radiate towards the edges to create a radial gradient effect. Die cut the cage from white cardstock using the die from Decorative Cage Die. Apply a thin layer of Designer Dries Clear Adhesive on the front using Hydra Sponges and sprinkle transparent glitter. Let it dry and then burnish with fingertips to remove excess glitter. Adhere it to the card panel slightly off-center to the left as shown. Trim off the die cut hanging off the edges. Adhere this panel on the card base using Darice Adhesive Foam Strips.
