Center the largest Nestables® Stitched Niched Oval Die (or die of your choice- approximately 4"x5-1/2"). Optional: I cut the left end of the ribbon with an XActo® knife, slipped it over the backside of the die before I ran it through my Big Shot®.

Using Using Nuvo® Glitter Drops, randomly place drops on the white background of card front and in lower right hand corner of red card stock (as shown, optional). Let dry.
I like to use many of my scrap pieces to decorate the backside of my cards. This is optional. Use Tear-ific® Tape to assemble card back as shown.
