- Highlight some circles with PearlEx Powders or ink from a stamp pad.
- Cut out a circle within a circle for later placement of a colored crystal.

- Place the template over the front of the blank card. Place a couple tiny pieces of tape on the edges to keep the template in place. Use the template to arrange the tiny baked circles. Use a strong white craft glue to attach the circles to the card. Allow to dry a couple of hours.
