ABC. . .Easy as 123

Yes, the card I have today was inspired by a little Jackson 5 that happened to be on the radio!  It's actually for this week's Make It Monday Challenge, Glitter Strips With ScorTape at Papertrey Ink.    I don't know how well you can see in the photo, but the Lemon Tart cardstock was embossed using the Book Print Impression Plate to get the "ABC".  The Aqua Mist cardstock was embossing using the By the Numbers Impression Plate to get the "123".  I cut the banner using the Basic Banners Die and the Banner Borders Die.  My husband actually thought it was a piece of pie and got an "easy as pie" meaning from the card.  LOL  That works!


I cut the numbers out of white cardstock using the By the Numbers Dies.  The sentiment is from the Handwritten Notes set and is stamped on Lemon Tart cardstock that was die cut using the Just the Ticket Border Die.  For the glitter, I put down each strip of ScorTape and peeled them up one at a time adding the different colors of glitter.  The final touches were the button and the Lemon Tart ribbon. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  School is closed today due to snow, so we'll be staying warm and cuddly indoors.  Hope you're warm wherever you are!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Handwritten Notes (PTI); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper- Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart (PTI); Accessories- By the Numbers Dies, By the Numbers Impression Plate, Book Print Impression Plate, Basic Banners Die, Banner Borders Die, Just the Ticket Border Die, Lemon Tart ribbon (PTI), ScorTape, button, glitter;  Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"

Hee! I thought of the Jackson 5 song immediately when I saw the thumbnail of your card, Charmaine! This is so sweet & ice creamy with the colors, and your glitter strips are anchored beautifully by the rest of the elements. Great card!
