Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #141

Good evening fellow crafters! How are you doing? I hope you all have a great start to your week. Can you believe next week is already THANKSGIVING?! I've said it so many times, and I still cannot grasp just how fast the year has gone. One of my older sister's is going to be hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, and I just cannot wait for some much needed family time with everyone!

I didn't think I would have much time to post any more projects any time soon, but I did have a chance to make a couple of cards for another Papertrey Ink Make it Monday. This week, Heather Nichols shows us how to add glitter using Heat and Stick embossing embossing powder.






I used my favorite Kraft cardstock for the card base. My ink colors are Stampin' Up's Indigo Island, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake. My scalloped borders are also Island Indigo cardstock. I used Inkadinkado's Snowflakes A-plenty stamp set and Papertrey Ink's Boutique Borders: Christmas Stamp set. Rather than add glitter to the entire card, I only stamped back over the snowflakes with the Versamark and heat set the glitter back onto just the snowflakes. I didn't want to add too much glitter to the card, I just wanted a very subtle, glittery affect. I added some rhinestones to the snowflakes as well. Overall, I love the way the card came out.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great night!
