PTI Make It Monday #95: Layered Glitter Shapes

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Heather. She has shown us how to easily layer die cuts and add glitter for just the right amount of sparkle and glitz for our projects.  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

I decided to take advantage of this week's challenge to make the project I was working on extra special.  I can't say I would have ever made an entire tag covered in glitter if it weren't for Heather's tutorial, but oh, do I ever like the results!  Take a look and let me know what you think ...

I made a thank-you card set for my daughter's teacher.  She loves cooking, but I don't have any cooking-themed stamp sets.  So, I went for the cutest alternative ... Gingerbread Lane.  I just love that set!

I made a set of cards based off of a design I had made earlier.  Pretty much a CASEing of this house design done by the ever so talented, Danielle.

I chose Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush, Aqua Mist, Vintage Cream, and Dark Chocolate for my color scheme.

A closer look at the cards:

Some embellished envelopes to coordinate:

Lastly, I packaged the set up in glassine bags, tied with twine, and layered with doilies and the challenge, all-over glittered, tag.

Doesn't it look like it is sugar-coated?  I love that!

Just about all the supplies are from PTI.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
