MoJo Monday #124

Unfortunately, I was in need of a sympathy card this time. A dear sweet Aunt of mine passed away a couple of days ago. She was such a sweet, sweet little old lady. I remember when us girls were young, she would send us all birthday cards with a stick of "wrigley's" gum inside. I will truly miss her. I made this card to send to her family. All paper is from my overflowing stash as well as the ribbon. The butterfly is one that I made at a class a few months back. It is made with Angelina Fiber, a stamp and an iron. You just ink up you stamp and then flip it over ink side up. You lay all your fibers on the wet ink, whatever colors you like, and there are several. Then you cover it with some parchment paper and iron over it with a little craft iron (no steam if you are using your regular iron). The fibers kinda melt into the ink and your design is born. And it doesn't hurt the stamp either, just'n case you were wondering. Hope you like it.

Beautiful card! You'll have to teach me that fiber/iron technique. That turned out pretty cool!
