Make it Monday - Layered Mats & Frames


Today i have a card for PTI's Make It Monday. This week challenge is to use dies to make layered mats or frames. Since Christmas is getting ever closer, i made a Christmas card! :)

I started with the button card die and cut rustic cream and some red from my scrap bin. I used the square die from the button die set. Next i stamped  the cute little Santa in the window. Then i colored him with watercolors and added glitter to his had and stars.

Above the window i added some patten paper tape. I adhered the red layer over the Santa with pop up dots and added ribbon at the top.

For my card base i drew diagonal lines with a pencil, then went over the lines with red Stickles. Then i used the half and half die and stamped ho ho ho in red ink, i also inked the edges with red ink. I adhered this strip over the glitter lines and adhered my tag on pop up dots.

Have a great weekend!!
