Make it Monday-Papertrey Ink #301

This week’s challenge at Papertrey Ink is to make a glittery mat for a card.  I like it when these challenges remind me to take out a product that I haven’t used for a while.  Lizzie used the white adhesive backed sheets from Papertrey Ink to make a glittered mat for her card.  I think that I have only used these sheets to make stickers out of small stamps or dies so I wanted to see how they would work as a mat.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make a card with a nice glittered edge.  I would probably have dipped all four sides of the mat into the glitter and then attached it to the main image with glue or tape.  Lizzie’s method of attaching the image to the mat first and then just glittering the edges worked quite well.  I did have a small crises with the image wanting to go on  slightly askew, but I managed to get it back off and straightened it up and reattached.   While the paper is not heavy weight, it held up quite nicely, especially when I added foam tape to make the mat dimensional.  I will definitely use this method in the future.
