MIM #149: Glitter Embellishments


It's Monday, and that means Make It Monday at PapertreyInk.
Heather Nichols demonstrates how to embellish a die cut with different
colors and sizes of glitter.
I wanted to create a Valentine and use the new Framed Love Die.
Anything larger than MS's fine glitter would take away from the lovely script, so I stuck with 
the fine.


The framed love is backed with vellum, and was almost impossible to keep stray sprinkles from straying. Part of the 'fun' with using glitter!
Background Basics: Medallion stamped in Raspberry Fizz and Orange Zest.
Martha Stewart glitters: Onyx, Hemitite, Purple Saphire, Antique Silver, and Crystal.
Frame: Tourmaline
Heart dies from Cupid's Arrow and and The Best is Yet to be.

  6. Great card Nancy! I've just been using cardstock with my die, and now it seems too plain and simple after seeing this! Did you use a sticker machine with yours or just glue? I love your background paper with this card too! Well done! :0)
