with <3

This was going to be a quick post Sunday evening to get my card in for Papertrey’s 201st Make It Monday, using a cover plate die cut as a stencil. The post never went up because I used "<3" in the title and it is an HTML code and caused a break in the link. Who knew. Anyway, back to the more interesting part of the post. I used a portion of Cover Plate: Hearts and added glitter over the light molding paste. For some reason the glitter wouldn’t stay stuck, so I went over it with Glossy Accents and additional glitter.

My first idea, which didn’t work out, used clear glitter over the light molding paste. Almost a week later, the glitter is not coming off. I’m not sure what happened with the colored glitter, one of the great mysteries of life, like using <3 in a blog title.

Winter is still making itself known. Hope you’re warm where you are.
