PTI MIM: Die-Cut Glitter Border, Moxie Fab World and Lily Pad Cards Felt Challenge

Three challenges in one card again...

This week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday reminded me why I RARELY work with glitter. Yes, it's pretty and yes, it's MESSY! Especially when you have to leave in the middle of working with it and a child helps things along... *sigh*

I'm also entering this into the Moxie Fab World and Lily Pad Cards felt challenges.


I wanted to use PTI's Funky Town paper and the Sending You dies and went from there. The felt flowers were die cut, carefully arranged and then placed on some Scor-tape adhesive sheet. If you have a 1-1/2" circle punch, I recommend punching out a perfect little circle to make your own Glubers but since I didn't have the right size, I just cut out around my finished flower. Added a bit of glue and glitter to the centers. A little sprinkling around the "petals" is alright, of course!

I was quite surprised to end up with a stamp-free card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Dana, this is gorgeous! I love that glitter border around the die cut! I can't even imagine having to break in the middle of glitter, Yikes! That stuff takes forever to fall off and man do you you find it in places you'd never imagine. :)
