PTI Make it Monday #26

This week's technique is about decreasing Apertures. I think it's super cool and it's a brand new technique for me to try the first time.

I used PTI stack mat 2 die and then the scalloped circle die from love lives here. In the middle I used the circle image from love lives here. It all paired up pretty well. The raspberry fizz works well with aqua mist. Then I was stuck. I don't know what to do with the bottom part of the card. I finally struggle an idea to ink some polka dots and a ribbon with a button on it.

I don't know if I can shake off the excess glitter without ruining the whole card. So I thought it may be a good idea to substitute the glitter window with a piece of clear cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on the window and it all went well until...... I put them together!


I did heat the ink on the clear cardstock, but apparently it was not dried. I wish there were an ink eraser. Oh, please let me know if there IS such a thing.

I was just about giving it all up, then I made the final attempt. I stamped the heart again and cut it out by hand. The heart covered the accident pretty well, and there you go: if I have TWO hearts, they will always be with you as well.


Here is the finished card. I have truly understood my limitation in making cards by now. I think I should probably just give up the making card part, and only focus on hoarding all the PTI goodies:)

  3. Excellent recovery on the booboo! The trials and tribulations of paper crafting, eh? It turned out beautifully. I love each element and the way they all fit together so nicely...
