PTI Make it Monday AND CAS-ual Fridays/Clean and Simple Stamping...

Monday, August 15, 2011

I'm so excited to have a chance to do a card for a few challenges!  It feels like AGES since I made a challenge card, LOL!

I've combined Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #28: Glitter Die Borders, and CAS-ual Fridays CFC#15, who have teamed up with Clean and Simple Stamping for a sketch! WOW...that's a mouthful, HUH?!?

I really love the look of the glitter border around the die-cut shape. I would have never thought to do something like this! I used the Mat Stack 2 PTI die to trace around with a glue pen, and then sprinkled it with glitter. The stamped die-cut shape is popped up with foam adhesive for that added touch of dimension.

The flower is a 'sparkly' white Prima flower. I inked the edges with a bit of ink to give it character and to match the dark pink in the sentiment and twine. The photo just doesn't do all that glitter and sparkle justice!!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!!!
