Make It Monday #105: Glitter Trim

This weeks MIM encouraged me to use the heart border die as a scallop and to perfect the 3 step stamping with The Sweet Life roses. After a few attempts at stamping the rose with an off-focus effect I think I have finally done it!

I die cut the heart border with a double sided adhesive sheet then attached that to a strip of aqua mist cardstock before glittering it. Love the glittered touch. I also love the dimension added by placing foam adhesive behind the glitter trim and rose. You can see it better in this photo looking down onto the card:

This is to thank a wonderful family who treated my family to a yummy Thai dinner on Friday. I love Thai food. I tried lemongrass tea, with honey, for the first time and now love that too!

Thanks Dawn McVey for another wonderful MIM video. Bye for now.
