Make It Monday Glitter Frames!

The talented and sweet Dawn McVey has served up a simple challenge on Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge.  You can see Dawn's video tutorial HERE.



I found an adhesive sheet in my stash of NBUS and cut a heart shape using my Spellbinders Nestabilities.  From the large heart shape I then cut a smaller heart from the center.  I simply attached it to my card face trimmed off the overlapping edge and peeled away the protective plastic sheet which revealed the adhesive. Next I sprinkled it with the sweetest fine blue glitter.  The silvery/holographic sparkle in my gliter must have been smaller than the blue glitter because the heart doesn't look very blue at all - rather pearly silver white : )  IRL it looks much better but when it is bling - it works!! especially when associated with winter and snow : )

I Cut a couple SNOW words from my Papertrey Ink die, stamped one using the Wonderful Words: Snow stamp set which coordinates with the die.  I glued my two die cuts together and attached it by popping it up with foam tape.  Finally I tied a piece of string around one of the 'legs" of the W and my very CAS card was done. 

This was a super easy challenge and so clever! I wish you could see this sparkly heart IRL it glistens like the snow does on a sunny snowy day!  I ought to know LOL we have had plenty of snowy days so far here in northwestern Wisconsin!   : )



My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches fresh sketch this week : )  You can join the fun HERE for this great challenge.  Be sure to visit the uber talented DT at Freshly Made Sketches blog for some stunning inspiration.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!! Thank you so very much for stopping by.

Oooh gorgeous Patti! I love how the snow glistens and sparkles like a thousand diamonds, especially on the cold days! I often have time to admire the dazzle as I ride the chairlift on the way to the mountain top when skiing or snowboarding - it truly is a sight to behold! Your card definitely depicts this sentiment well. LOVE it!
