MIM #171

Make It Monday at Papertrey,
Betsy showing her skills with Pop-Ups.
Love this!
So many ways to use Papertrey's dies.

Gatsy Glamour kinda reminded me of a shuttered window,
combined with Home Made and Vegetable Garden,
a card for a new neighbor.
I think it was one of the PTI designers that said the artichoke reminded her of a pineapple,
the symbol of hospitality. Works for me!
Super simple, super quick.
All PTI products, except the pearl pen on the top

Is it me, or is the summer flying by?
Enjoyed the 4th at the lake with family, and missed so much online
with blogging.
Lots of catchup ahead!

Play along with MIM here:


  1. Great card Nancy! You are so good at adding different elements and stamps together that all work together perfectly! This will definitely be a welcoming card! :0)

  2. This is brilliant ...Nancy! I have that die cut out and sitting at my desk and did not think it would work , but you knew it would! Love this gorgeous card, and I love the top of the die you added, I was not sure what to do with that. Love the bricks ... you are so good at adding many elements to your cards.
    Yes, time in general is going by way too fast!

  3. Nancy, this die was a PERFECT choice! It was meant for this technique. And, I agree the Artichoke does resemble a pineapple.
    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I am so glad you agree with my new rule! Do you think the Design team will, too?
    I am not sure I have ever said this to you but you are an AMAZING card maker. You make truly GORGEOUS cards EVERY TIME!!!
    Thanks for sharing this one!

  4. I love this die for the challenge!! Your card is AMAZING. This MIM technique really enhances the Gatsby die.

  5. Great choice to pop up Nancy! This is a pretty card for a new neighbour!

  6. Who knew that the Gatsby die would work for this technique? Not only does it work, but you slayed it! Gorgeous card (love the brickwork you added) with fab colours and details. Love.
