MIM #95 Layered Glitter Shapes

Merry Christmas to all!
Heather Nichols challenges us to glitter and layer shapes this week at PapertreyInk.
Nothing I love better than playing with glitter!
My darling granddaughter is turning "7" on the 21st,
so challenge this week became a birthday card for Reagan.
Shape Up Series: Sweater is the base for the card.
Knit bits was stamped and embossed in white. (Long cable).
A bit of lace on the sleeve and under the red ribbon, made the sweater more feminine.
The 7 was die cut from PTI's By the Numbers. Glitter is Martha Stewart.
Following Heather's instructions, the 7 was put through the Xyron, button was attached, then glittered.
Closeup of bells and felt leaf die cut.
Snowflake also double die cut, once with Ocean Tides and then with stone, and white embossed.
Check out Heather's tutorial on Nichole Heady's blog at PapertreyInk.


  1. Wow you have a very lucky granddaughter! This card is gorgeous! I didn't order the sweater die because it looked intimidating but you really brought it to life! The lace on the sleeve is so sweet!

  2. That's a sweater?! What a gorgeous card. I love how the red glitter pops on the snowflake backdrop. The leaf anf bells are adorable, too.

  3. I've resisted that sweater die for now, but this is just adorable - love all the layers, embossing, lace - and the glitter 7 is perfect with its button detail!

  4. Nancy, sign me up for one of your sweaters. You were so cleaver in the way you decorated it. The colors you used make in look like the real thing! Your granddaughter should love seeing her important birthday "in lights". Thanks for taking the time to share during this busy season. Happy Holidays.

  5. Just look at those pretty layers, you did a great job with the sweater die too, what a beautiful creation!!!!

  6. Very pretty and festive card! I love the choice in PP for the sweater - so cute!


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
