sugar beads cards - yum, yum

Hi everyone
Geli here with
3 cards using the new my2angels sugar beads

All 3 cards use the same basic fishtail banner (2 1/2 x 5 1/2"), a tag from the Bo-Bunny Enchanted Fairytales paper and a paper doily.

The Sugar Beads certainly look delicious with beads, microbeads and cylinder beads all mixed together and they have yummy names too.
Here is how to make the first card:

Cutting a perfect fishtail banner is easy!

1. Cut halfway at whatever angle you want.

2. Fold it over so the corners meet.
3. Cut along the diagonal line.
Done! Perfectly matching every time.

Glue a small paper doily under the banner. Trim off anything that sticks over the edge (except on the left).

Draw a line of Dimensional Magic around the banner and sprinkle the Licorice Twist Sugar Beads all over it.

Here's a closie. Good enough to eat:

Now draw another line of Dimensional Magic on top of the beads to secure them nicely, especially if the card is being posted!

Cut out a tag from the Bo-Bunny Enchanted Fairytales paper and embellish with a Black Love Charming word.

Here is another card, using the same basic layout, but this time it's the Strawberry Shortcake Sugar Beads

These ones are red and silver.

Cut out a tag and glue on some red stamens and some black scalloped edged organza ribbon.

Glue a wish ring onto a scrap of paper, cover the inside with Dimensional Magic, but let it dry before gluing it onto a black mulberry paper flower and then to the tag.

Add a few black rhinestuds and it's all done.

The last card starts off just like the other two...

...and is embellished with a silver brass filigree,
a present charm,
a red charming pin 
and some black stemmed star flowers.

I will show you in an upcoming post how to make them shiny in different colours, so keep an eye out for that:)
