MIM #85 Glitter Tabs

Dawn McVey at PapertreyInk has a fun tutorial this week,
Glitter Tabs.
Now anything that involves glittering has my attention, so I played along.
(Actually, PapertreyInk and Nichole's blog has become a new home for my crafting, I'm visiting way too oten!).
One more Halloween card for the grandkids.
(There are 10!)
I'd say they're cheaper and better for the teeth than candy,
but cheaper's a fib that will cause my nose to grow!
Picked up Authentique's new 6x6 Enchanted paper pack and a new set of 'Spooky' buttons.
Here's a closeup of the glittered tab.
It's a punched out pinked circle by Martha Stewart's punch around the page, but rather than cut off the unglittered half, I folded it to make the black stand out more.
Papertrey's cardstock, Mat Stack 4 - Layerz, Banner Builders (distressed and inked in Fresh Snow),
Mr. Bones stamp set.
I used the layerz mat stack 4 die to punch out the middle of the web paper. The sentiment is recessed in the hole.
Love glittering tabs, thanks Dawn. Will be using this technique through the holidays!


  1. This is a beauty, love the web paper. Looks like it has so much texture!!

  2. Awesome card. Love the layout. That button is sooo cute. Your ribbon treatment is gorgeous. Nice job with the glitter tab too!

  3. It's incredible how you made the colors pop with gloomy Halloween hues! The banner is adorable...I love how the pumpkin is spooky but happy. :-)

  4. Really sweet card... your glitter tab is subtle, but perfectly placed!

  5. Such a fun filled Halloween card. Great way to get a glitter tab in. Your polka dots and bow are my favorites on this card.
