I made a card today for this week's Make it Monday #95: Layered Glitter Shapes. I'm still not sure what I think of the card I made--I do like a bit of glitter, but there is a LOT of glitter on this card. Well, here is the card, and you can decide what you think:
This technique requires a Xyron machine, and mine is pretty small. I had to find a die that was smaller than 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and that was a recognizable shape without being stamped. I decided on these hot air balloons from Up Up and Away, and just cut each balloon out separately. I used the Loop de Loop and Star die for the borders on the bigger balloons. I used my pinking shears to make a tiny scaled chevron for the smallest balloon.
Since everything in sight was covered with glitter anyway, I decided to try this technique with scor tape, too. I decorated the inside of the birthday card that I made for CASology yesterday, to give to a friend from spinning who told me it was her 50th birthday today.
I made stripes of glitter to mimic the stripes on the card base. I'm going to enter this card inside into the MIM as well.
