Make It Monday #47 A La Carte

I haven't done a Make It Monday in forever! But when I saw the choice to try one that I missed out on, I jumped at the chance. I tried #28, Glitter Die Borders and created this card:

I decided that if I try this again, I will use a thicker glue around the border since mine came out so thin and hard to see. I just used a Quickie Glue Pen..maybe Tombo would work better next time. Anyway, you can just barely see it sparkling in this picture.

The flower and hexagon background come from the new Rosie Posey set that PTI came out with last month. I loved the Smokey Shadow/Canyon Clay color combo that Nichole used on one of the release cards, so I wanted to incorporate that here. The button in the middle is a Stampin' Up corduroy button in Chocolate Chip.

The hexagons were stamped with Encore silver ink to have an embossed look without the extra work ;)

The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Greetings, the ribbon in Canyon Clay ribbon. The die cut is Mega Mat Stack #3. The ink for the flower is SU Pumpkin Pie and Mellow Moss for the stem. The glitter is also SU Dazzling Diamonds. Hopefully with the new year I'll be able to get back on track with PTI's Make It Mondays, because I sure do enjoy them :)


  1. Jessica this MIM card is beautiful! Love the slight glitter boarder. When I made this a while ago my boarder was way to thick. I love yours. Beautiful background too!

  2. I think the glitter border is perfect! And the stamped background is totally fabulous. Such a fun card!

  3. This is gorgeous!
    The background is fabulous...
    and that flower just pops off the mat stack!
    I love the thin glitter strip...
    adds just that little bit of "wow"!

  4. I love this card and the purple flower centre is fabby.

  5. Love it! Great flower and great colors!!
