Mariposa Matstack

I love the variety of Matstacks that are available at JoAnns. How many have you bought? The more important question is...How many have you actually used? Some people collect Hummels, I collect Matstacks! I saw the Mariposa matstack and so of course I had to buy it. In Spanish "Mariposa" means "butterfly". Hmmm....This matstack would be a perfect match to the "All a Flutter" stamps and "All a Flutter" sentiments from MTME. I took advantage of the beautiful paper and just added a few butterflies and sentiments and "voila" cards were completed quickly. There are a few close-up views below.

The verse was stamped on vellum and run through the Xyron machine so it was easy to attach to the card front. Paper pierced holes show the flight of the butterfly.

The center part of the wings were coated with a glue pen then dipped in fine glitter. A center opening on this card adds a little interest.

The black and white cardstock were cut with Nestability dies. The same technique(as above) was used to give the butterfly a little sparkle.

The blossom and circle Nestability dies were used to layer the circular area on this card.

This card has no stamping just layered papers, a foam mounted butterfly and a silk flower with a pearl in the middle. More "Mariposa" cards in the next post.

Back to creating cards in the butterfly garden.

BTW here is a photo of the door in the butterfly garden. This is where I create. Visitors are always welcome in the garden. Come join me!
