I especially like the Gold Foil Mat. Remember to get the most out of your paper by using the part of the mat that isn't visible for something else. See the bottom of this post for what I did for this one.
Base: Flirty Flamingo - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Mat: Gold Foil - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 5" x 3 3/4"
Inside: Whisper White 5" x 3 3/4"
Stamps: Swirly Bird, Cottage Greetings
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy
Stampin' Write Marker - Sweet Sugarplum
To make the two shades of flowers, I stamped once, then again without re-inking for the lighter shade.
Here is the leftovers from the mat. You can see I simply cut a large rectangle with my paper trimmer to make a "frame" which turns into the mat. Now I have a good sized piece left over for making something else or for die-cutting.
Thank you for looking in today. Make it a great week! ~ Donna
