Papertrey Ink- Make It Monday #301: Matting With Glitter

Hi All!  This week on Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday, Lizzie Jones shows us how to add bling to cards with glitter mats.  I love how easy it is to make a simple card special by just adding a bit of glitter.  Although working with glitter can be a tad bit messy, the result you get is well worth it.  

Here's Lizzie's card:

Here's my take on this challenge:

I had fun making this card. The most time-consuming and tedious was creating the cross stitch background.  I die cut a piece of white cardstock with a cross stitch die and then used red, green, and white cross stitch floss to create a pattern.  I added the sentiment "Merry & Bright" on top of the cross stitch piece using Ranger Multi Matte Medium.  I find that particular liquid glue works best with the cross stitching. Then I placed the whole thing on top of a red glitter mat that I made using Scor-Tape and Martha Stewart Garnet Glitter.  I embossed a piece of white cardstock with Stampin' Up Petals-a-Plenty Flowers Embossing Folder.  I've had this embossing folder for years and usually take it out for Christmas cards.  Still love it as much as the day I received it.  I layered the cross stitch piece on top of the white embossed card stock and then placed the whole thing on top of a red card base.  I love how it turned out! Leave a comment and let me know what you think of this. 

Thanks for stopping in.
