Blue Butterfly

Here is another Mother's Day card! I made this one 4 1/4"x5 1/2." I decided to go with a rather monochromatic look using blues, although I added some white as well. The background is stamped twice, in two different colors, and slightly layered. I thought it gave it a nice effect. The butterfly is cut at 3." I used some foam adhesive to pop-up its wings. I added glossy accents to the body and Stickles to the wings for a little more texture. The label for the sentiment is cut at 2 1/4." I stamped my sentiment and added some small white pearls to finish it off. Enjoy!
Supplies used:
  • Paper: The Paper Company
  • Stamps: Scrappy Moms Stamps - sentiment, Inkadinkadoo - background swirl
  • Ink: Tsukineko - mediterranean blue, moonlight white
  • Stickles - dark blue
  • Pearls
  • Cricut cartridges: Serenade - butterfly, Elegant Edges - label
  • Glossy Accents
I made this for the following challenges:
