Make It Monday #47 Part 2 - Glitterama

Hello everyone! I've got one more card to share with you today. I thought I'd go along with this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #47, because of the diversity you can play along with!
This time, I'm going back to MIM #3 where you create glitter strips using double sided tape. It's a neat trick for making clean glitter strips, and double sided tape holds glitter pretty well. Unfortunately, I used the Prisma Glitter and ended up with glittered pair of black pants afterwards yet again lol

Sorry about the bad photo quality. It doesn't do justice for all the glitter that went into the card!!!

I thought I'd try using the glittered strips as the background, rather than just have a single strip for a bit of decoration. I finally brought out the Block Alphabet dies and decorated the rest. It took a while to get all the foam tapes cut up and stick the alphabets individually. It's a simple card, but the glitter certainly works. 

Another thing you could do is to use different sized double sided tapes to add a bit more variation into the stripes :)

 That's it for today. Thanks for coming by again!

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
PAPER: [PTI] Stamper's Select White, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores
OTHER: [PTI] Block Alphabet die collection; [Palette] Prisma Glitter; [Sellotape] double-sided tape; foam tape
