Papercraft Crew 432 #PPC432 & Just Add Ink #JAI560


How cute is this sketch from over at Papercraft Crew?

I have decided to team it up with the gorgeous colour combo over at Just Add Ink this week.

I made this card for a really super special birthday that is coming up during the next school holidays.

My little (or not so little anymore) girl is turning 11.
Where has the time gone?

Using a different shape for the strips at the back gives this card a point of difference and using blending brushes and a bit of ink on basic white paper, then cutting out the butterfly gives the two tone effect.

Simply embossing the background gives the card texture and dimension.

  • Stamps: Blossoms in Bloom
  • Ink: Versamark, Blackberry Bliss and Coastal Cabana
  • Card: Basic White, Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Grey Granite, Coastal Cabana and Vellum
  • Tools:  Stitched Triangles, Pierced Blooms, Brilliant Wings and Potted Succulent Dies and Tasteful Textile Embossing folder with a Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine & White embossing powder and a heat tool 
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals

  2. The two tone butterfly really does look special Nicole. I love how your subtle use of the triangle elements draws your eye back and forth across the card. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
