A Glittered Carbon Copy


No Black Friday Shopping for me today...they've made some changes at work so that is where I'll be. Wishing everyone else that goes though good luck!

Today I have the pleasure of sharing a Carbon Copied post with the fabulously talented Andrea M. from Work In Progress! We are both participating in Jay Gee's Nook Challenge using Papertrey Ink's Quarterfoil Die Cover Plate. Instead of using the die of the whole plate, I isolated some of the cut out because they reminded me of the shape of the blue ornaments in Jay Gee's Nook's Challenge picture.


After die-cutting, I covered them with glitter, adhered them to the tag base, drew lines for the string and topped the ornament with a silver rhinestone. The sentiment is an SRM Sticker, and the fibers and pearl toppers are from May Arts.

I absolutely cannot wait to see how the Quarterfoil Die Cover Plate and Jay Gee Nook's Challenge Inspiration Picture has inspired Andrea. I'm sure it is stunning, as is all of her work! I hope you get a chance to pop on over to Work in Progress and check out her post!
