Mat Stack 1 Cards ~ 3 colors

Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 1 is one of my favorite PTI dies.  That is saying a lot! I have only bought 2 or 3 dies that I haven't loved and used, a lot.  I LOVE my PTI dies.  But, Mat Stack 1 is really a special die.  It has a classic shape that to me, lends an air to a card.  Elegant but not in the least, fussy!  These 3 cards have the exact layout.  4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock base.  4x 2 3/4" pieces of solid and patterned paper.  A coordinating ribbon is adhered at the seam.  Mat Stack 1 die was used to cut the solid cardstock.  A 2 3/4" white oval was cut on my Expression with George & Basic Shapes.  I use those ovals a lot on my Mat Stacks and Fillable Fames so I cut them in bulk.  I do an auto-fill and cut a full page in both white and cream.  I usually cut a few in 2" as well.  The oval is stamped in coordinating ink with Dawn McVey's Signature Greetings.  Beautiful Booms II #3 was used to cut cream felt.  Coordinating seed beads were sewn into the stack of three flowers.  The Mat Stack was mounted on pop dots and the flower was adhered to the mat with a glue dot.
Clean and Simple!
