Make It Monday #28

This week's Make It Monday is "Glitter Die Borders." In other words, outlining your die cut with glitter. Trust me that mine is glittered, LOL! You may be able to see it better in the second picture. I used Daydreamer for the first time, and a sentiment from Botanical Silhouettes:



What an easy technique that can give an otherwise plain card a little pizazz. I'll be doing this again, I think. :-)

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Daydreamer, Botanical Silhouettes
Paper: PTI--S.S. White, Royal Velvet
Ink: Watermark; Memento--Grape Jelly; E.P.--Stamp Diego Ultra Detail White
Other: Die--Spellbinders Labels 13; Glitter--Doodlebug Design Lily White; Embossing Folder--Cuttlebug; Copic: G28; 2-Way Glue (SU)

I love the way you've used the Daydreamer stamps on the black card stock, Jill. And the glitter around the die is very subtle, but adds just the right detail.

I don't think the photo's doing justice to your lovely card, but it looks great and I love the simplicity of the design :)

Very nice result with the white and royal velvet. The poppies stand out great and I am sure the glitter border wrap up the card nicely!

So striking, Jill. Love the contrast of the white and royal velvet and that daydreamer in white is just fab. More please!

Oh that Royal Velvet on white is HOT. You make the most perfectly executed cards, Jillie Dee...just flawless. I don't think I have opened my Royal Velvet pack since it came out....and it's my favorite color? Nonsense...

Gorgeous! I'll have to trust you for sure when it comes to seeing the glittered outline with my old eyes. You'll be pleased to know I am going to the optomatrist today though. ;-)

I adore the Royal Velvet against the white. So regal. I need labels 13 now. Magnificent card Jill.
