You remind me

Monday, August 22, 2011

Hello! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. I'm starting mine off with a card for the Viva la Verve Week 2 challenge. Thank goodness this is a simple sketch because I'm behind on my challenges!

You can't see it in the photo, but the black strip is dry embossed. The scalloped edging is covered in a glitter paste that I made after seeing a video tutorial on Linda's Paper Boutique blog. I used Mod Podge instead of Glossy Accents and it worked great. I haven't used a lot of glitter in the past because of the mess, but this was so easy and clean, you'll probably be seeing it a lot more from me in the future. I love how it looks and the best stays put! Note to self: I must get lots of new glitter colors!

Here's a peek at the inside:
