MIM 3 -- Glitter Strip


Here's a quick card for Make it Monday 3, to add a glitter strip to your card using Scor-Tape.  I made another card like these HERE by embossing one of the Limitless Layers dies onto my cardstock and adding a few lines with the Scor-Pal.

EDITED:  I was asked about embossing the medallion.  Here's the sandwich I used in my cuttlebug:
- A Plate

- B Plate
- Tan Embossing Mat
- Cardstock (cardfront)
- die (cutting lines facing down)
- B Plate

I placed a few strips of 1/8" Scor-Tape above and below the scor lines and sprinkled them with Sour Apple glitter (Martha Stewart).  The image is punched out with a 1 3/4" circle punch and the shamrock was punched out again using a 1" circle punch.  I popped it up on a pop dot for more dimension.  I colored the inside of the shamrock with my Clearstar glitter pen so it was nice and sparkly.  Quick, easy and fun card!
