My dear friend Susie has requested a special card for her niece’s graduation. Susie lives on Maui so we had a wonderful excuse for making a few phone calls which went far and beyond discussing the card. Not surprisingly Susie wanted purples, flowers, lace, butterflies and it had to have a pocket for a gift card.
I didn’t have a large enough dark purple flower so I clustered several small flowers together. I’ve used SB Labels Four, SB Foliage, MS Butterflies. Recollections half pearls. Lace, flowers and organza ribbon from my stash. The largest butterfly was punched first from pink card then layered with a velum butterfly covered with VersaMark and heat embossed with Sparkle EP.
On the inside I’ve used a MS Daisy Border punch. More MS Butterflies, EK Success Flower punch (Are you getting tired of this little beauty? Hope not cuz I Love it.) I’ve used glitter glue in the flower centers and Gelly Roll pens on the butterflies. Susie is legally blind, as a result her writing is quite large. After completing the card I realized I hadn’t left her enough space to write her massage so I’ve included a simple note card that fits into the pocket.
While I had all my purple snippets, punches, ribbon, etc. out I made a card for Susie herself. The stamp is from Inkadinkado and the little yellow flower from my stash.
These were both made using snippets/scraps so I'm sharing with Di and the gals in the playground for the Snippets Challenge.
Have an Amazing Day!
