I trimmed it down and layered it on top of some black cardstock and gold foil trim.
I made 3 different types of flowers. I have some small simple flowers that I inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. Then there are some Loose Roses that have been stained with Aged Mahogany Distress Satin the I brushed over them with Clear Wink of Stella. I could not resist brushing over the edges with Gold Wink of Luna. The centers where filled with gold micro beads, I did something special to the Open Rose. I started out staining it with Aged Mahogany but with all the gold foil on the patterned paper I felt the rose needed a little gold, I dabbed Flittler Glu onto the petals and then rubbed on some Minc Gold foil. The outcome is so pretty and once the foil was on there it did not come off as I shaped the petals.
I added some Prima bling from my stash then sat back and admired all the gold foil on the card. :)
Just like every other paper crafter, I feel in love with the DCWV Mariposa papers when they first came out. I hoarded the beautiful sheets of paper because I could not bear to part with it. Well guess what? Scrapadabadoo has ordered more of the Mariposa 12x12 paper pads and the 6.5x5 paper pads ! This means I can use one set of papers and keep the other set. LOL I made this side step Thank You card and actually used several sheets of paper. haha
I started with this teal sheet then layered the coral and butterfly sheets.
Then I fussy cut some butterflies from these sheets:
Of course, I had to add some of bling (although it is difficult to see)
So now that I can have my Mariposa ans use it too, I think I will make more cards with the lovely papers.
