  3. Mix  with the paint brush an eighth of a teaspoon of Pearl Ex with about a half a teaspoon of diamond glaze in palette.
  4. Paint the Pearl Ex mixture on the glossy black card stock. Let dry.
  5. Cut the 5" square pieces of cappella  point to point and then take one piece and the long edge against the flat of the paper cutter and cut to the point again so that you have four pieces to fit into a square.

  7. Adhere dragonfly layer onto painted black card stock.
  8. Adhere this to the triangle layers.
  9. Cut the label using the Big Kick and the labels die.
  10. There are three labels on the die; choose the long die cut and stamp the words on it.
  11. Lay the label on the layers for placement and make small marks with the pencil to know where to make the hole punches. Punch holes and attach the label with the silver brads.
