So this weekend, on my to-do list was to design a graduation card, that one card became two:
While I was cleaning up I came across the Hero Arts DC134 Butterflies Stamp & Cut. I thought that would be pretty to use for a female grad card and then teamed it up with DC149 Congrats Stamp & Cut.
To make the butterflies pop, I used the SA113 Every Which Way Stencil with Distress Oxide – Broken China. I decided to minimally color the butterflies but made up for it by using glitter cardstock for the congrats.
This card was inspired by Fusion:
With the Butterflies Stamp & Cut still out, I popped a watercolor paper panel into my Mini MISTI and stamped the Butterflies in Distress Oxide – Broken China + Black Soot.
I used a wet paintbrush on the butterflies and quickly ‘watercolored’ them. The yellow background was made with various Zig Clean Color Markers. That sentiment from the Irreverent Birthday Messages CRACKS me up. So totally unexpected for a butterfly design, don’t you agree?
My card was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch!
My card duo was thoroughly inspired by the Twofer Card Challenge:
I need to play along more often with the Twofer Card Challenge! I can always have one birthday design, something that I’m always wishing I had more of in my stash!
