mim#95: layered glitter shapes

I had one last feminine birthday card to make and decided to incorporate Heather’s layered glitter shapes technique after watching Make It Monday #95.

Because my Xyron machine uses 1½-inch tape, I knew that the die I glittered would need to be small. The larger circle shape of Lovely Layers worked perfectly. One more glittered layer was needed, so I had to nestle two pieces of red-backed tape for the larger die cut rather than using the Xyron. It worked, but the Xyron method is definitely quicker.

Now I can start on my Christmas cards. Maybe I shouldn’t admit that.
