I am loving the new glitter papers by Close To My Heart, they will be available in six colors in the Spring/Summer Idea Book! The glitter paper is Cricut compatibility. Making shaped cards with a glitter base is easy peasy with the Cricut cartridges! I have combined my card for two challenges. Heart 2 Heart Challenges is having an All that Glitters challenge this week. Merry Monday is mixing things up with a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
I went with the top row, Blue, Dry Embossing and Snow. I finally managed to get my hands on the Falling Snow Embossing Folder by Sizzix. I couldn't wait to try it out. My friend Kim, at Joyful Creations, previously posted about getting different looks with your embossing folders by using the tan embossing mats. When I first read her post.....I was not sure I was ready to start cutting into my mats. Fast forward a few months.....and just how many times have I used those mats......NONE! So what harm could come in cutting one up! While Kim gives directions in her post....I must have been having a duh! moment...because it took me three tries to get the hang of it! While I am sure it is just me, I have taken a pic to show you my Cuttlebug sandwhich.
Thanks so much for the inspiration Kim. I am sure you will be seeing me cutting up more mats in the near future!
