Make It Monday #28


back again to share a quick card i made for my sister-in-law's birthday...i used the technique shown in papertrey ink's make it monday challenge which is how to add glitter to your card using a die-cut as a template. it's super easy and a fun idea! i wish i had used some finer glitter after the fact, but still like how it turned out.  the glitter is from martha stewart crafts that i found at michael's awhile's a huge container that will probably last me a life-time literally and it was marked from $12.99 to $2.99 on clearance! couldn't pass up a deal like that! :) the die-cut i used is dawn's "signature series: butterfly." it's the first time i've used the it! the sentiment is from the set "enjoy the ride."

i've been busy this week finishing up a couple of cards for a magazine submission (got my fingers crossed) and painting the window in the nursery so that i can start on the tree branch wall painting i'm planning to do! will be here in about 2 months!

thanks for visiting my blog!
xxo andie...


  1. sweet card! love the glitter around your purple butterfly.

  2. Love your sweet polka dot card Andie! Is this the tinsel glitter? I was wondering how well it worked. Yours looks good :) Big congrats on your upcoming little exciting!

  3. That chunky glitter is perfect, very pretty card.

  4. lisa - yes, that is tinsel was a "holiday" glitter i guess. it does work well...just like normal glitter except that the pieces are long and rectangle instead of little dots like normal glitter. it's very pretty for fake snow!

  5. Very pretty card, Andie! Great job on the technique.
