We’re finishing off the week with guest blogger, Cindy Hansberry, who is no stranger to the scene. She created this card with mostly retired products but I still love it – and it’s not hard to switch out the products. All you need is a little inspiration!
This is a graduation card she made for a neighbor and friend – I’m a little late in posting it! She creatively used the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and coordinating punch to layer for dimension – try substituting Papillon Potpourri with its coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch. The top butterflies are punched from vellum and embellished with ribbon for antennae and basic rhinestones for a “blingin’ body.” (haha; sorry.)
The DSP is from Sale-a-Bration, along with the organza ribbon in Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. What could you use? Try Patio Party DSP for a contemporary feel or Twitterpated DSP for a more traditional look.
I also love how she split the paper in the background and finished it off with the rounded corners and small butterflies on the corner of the envelope.
