Butterfly Graduation

Butterfly Graduation
Made this card for my cousin-in-law whose just graduated recently.

I decided to make an one layer card as inspired by the challenges listed below. Furthermore, I kind of hooked to "block stamping" ever since I tried this technique!


Close-up : "Block stamping" background
On a barley white card, I did a masking of one inch from the side of the card. Then, I block stamping onto the center of the card using yellow ink vertically. Then, I used tea dye distress ink to block stamping again in both vertical and horizontal so that it make a unique background.


Close-up : Sentiment and butterfly
The sentiment is stamped on the bottom of the background block. A silhouette butterfly is stamped above the sentiment on the right. Some pink and blue gems are added to the butterfly wings to make it sparkle and dimensional.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None
