Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #301

Hello again everyone...

Back with one more card for Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #301...
Matting with Glitter.

This was a really fun challenge. I have decided only to mat a part of my 
card with glitter rather than the whole thing.

I began with a soft green A2 card and rounded the corners.

I have used stamps and dies from Love Lives Here and Love Lives Here Holiday. These are two of my absolute favourite stamp sets from Papertrey Ink. I turn to them over and over.

I have stamped the everygreen cluster a couple times across the top of the card and added a few hearts here and there. 

The sentiment has the requisite glitter matting and on top of it is the little house. I cut it out 4 times from heavy cardstock for a bit of heft. Some additional greenery around it and a ribbon across the bottom and all done.

Thanks for visiting with me.

A note to all you wonderful people who have been following my blog...there was some sort of an error with the "Follow" button and I have had to delete it. I will be re-installing it right away but I think you will need to sign up all over again. Really sorry about that. There are times when I really do loathe computers.  :(     Cheers.
