Today I decided to pull out a mat stack I bought some time back. It's called Mariposa, is manufactured by DCWV and you can see it here:
I don't usually purchase the matstacks because the paper sizes don't always work for me with A2 sized cards but for some reason I had ordered this a while back. This stack is full of glittered (my friend, Donna does NOT like glitter....can you imagine that?!) and foiled papers that I think are gorgeous. I decided to use some to make a card and decided I'd time myself. I made this card from start to finish in 4 1/2 minutes! Seriously...and that even included the time it took me to find my border punch!
You can't really see how lovely glittered this paper is...but it is just beautiful I think. This stack has lots of butterfly or bird prints...just really soft and lovely.
I don't need to give you directions on this because it is just as it looks. Besides the paper I used a Fiskar's border punch, a Stampin' Up punch (for the rounded sentiment), a sentiment (Many Thanks) by Paper Trey Ink, Stampin Up Real Red ink for the sentiment, 3M tape to rise the sentiment up a bit, and some Stampin' Up gold cording as well as a piece of red cardstock from Archivers. Very quick...very easy...and really an elegant card...all done in 4 1/2 minutes!!!
