Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Build-A-Card Bonus Fun!

By now you should have completed TWO steps in this BUILD-A-CARD process! If not, you'll want to go back to our Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog and start from the beginning.Somehow, some way...you need to include matting to your card! This can be done anywhere or any way you like as long as it's visible to the viewer! All set? Time to go and see
Joanne.

NOTE: Matting your card, it's also layering pieces of paper on your card, I hope this clear any confusion! If you need an example my melon card below...the green paper is a mat for the pink hearts paper.
BONUS...BONUS...BONUS...BONUS...Before you go, I have an extra prize up for grabs! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you like the most about our Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog! Here's the prize one lucky winner will receive...

This is a stamp KIT...it comes with the stamps shown AND an ink pad and an acrylic block!

And now onto our "Regular" Challenge, a shaped card...Did you see the dt's shaped cards? Wow, they all have fab projects this week! I decided to do a watermelon, I used my Nestabilities Circles and used the largest two circles, I then used my sizzix swirl, sent it through my Xyron X and glittered it, added it to my flowers and my stamped tag and decided to add some more bling with some rhinestones...it was easy peasy! I just love all the bright colors of this card...so summery! Thanks for joining me today!

Paperaddict said...

I had some difficulties understanding your element on the build-a-card challenge. What is matt/matting? Can you please try to explain? So sorry to bother you with such a question, but being norwegian its not always one can understand everything, and I would love to participate:-)

Hi Paula, what a lovely melon card! :) Love the colors!
What I like about Stamptacular is that they have fun challenges and that I go there for challenges when I want to have fun making a card and not knowing that I need to get it done! :) So looking forward to seeing this card building at the end. A great bonus challenge! :)
