Make It Monday #63: Glitter Die Cuts


It feels so awesome to get back to making cards. I have been so busy. Creating cards is such a stress reliever. I need to make myself carve out more time to do them.
Today's Make It Monday challenge is to use Die cuts with glitter. I have been doing this awhile and love it. Its so easy! I use a Xyron sticker machine. I have the tiniest one to the biggest one. I love them.
This card was inspired by the spiritual work I have been doing. I have been going through some rough stuff life has been throwing at me. I have been trying to learn how to live in the moment and reduce stress. I have been taking a quilt to the back yard, laying in the grass, and just enjoying my surroundings. It works like magic. No matter what is going on I become happy,calm, and in the moment.  So this is my Enjoy Every Moment Quilt card!

Beautiful card Brandy, makes me glad I ordered the patch die. So I am guessing you would recommend the Xyron machine. Love the glittered sentiment.

I am squealing with delight over your card! Not only is the glittered label precious, I am crazy over the new patch dies. Love what you did with them here. The smaller perforated one is my new favorite toy!

There is something about cards. Maybe it's making art in a small space, or the fact that people can share it with others. Glitter always makes me smile:) love it. Please visit me for a chance to win an Annie Sloan book!
