Since I already had all my Papertrey Ink things out for this card, I thought it would be fun to participate in this week's Make It Monday, which is all about adding glitter trim to your project. ...A challenge with glitter...? Uhh...yea, I'm in!
I may have gone a little overboard with the glitter trim idea because, omg, I totally underestimated the mess this little project would create. I think I'll be finding glitter for
For this card, I used the wonderful words: hello stamp set, which is embossed with black. I then cut strips of cardstock (scarlet jewel, autumn rose, canyon clay, summer sunrise, and simply chartreuse) and ran them through my xyron. I added prisma glitter to the strips and proceeded to cover everything on my desk with sparkles (as a side note, swiffer cloths work great as glitter clean up cloths). It didn't help that Audie was poised and ready to help...
He's a creature of opportunity--those scraps are mighty shiny and the opposite of tasty (not that he knows that until he sinks his teeth into them). He steals them like a stealth ninja and runs for the hills (bedsheets)! With my fingers covered in glitter, he was definitely at an advantage--though that simply resulted in him being inadvertently bedazzled. Which resulted in my room, carpet, and sheets ending up a little more fabulous than they were before this evening. Alas.
Okay, back to the card. See how sparkly it is?
Anyways, that's all for me today. Thanks for visiting!
