    Cute card. What is the green mat you are working on? I like that it is a grid.

      Hi Mary, thanks for the feedback.
      The green pad I am working on is called “self healing cutting mat”. It is great to work on this surface since you can use your exacto knife on it with no problem and the grids help you to measurement. I am sure you can get one from your local craft store on online. Check it out here http://www.google.com/products?q=cutting+mat&aq=f

  11. Love this card! I so like that you do the videos it just gives you so much more insight as to how the whole process came together. Have to admire your fortitude to do all those tiny hearts but they sure added to the card. Love how you put the butterfly together!!! Great, great, great as usual.
