Celebrating You With Butterfly Kisses - Ink, Stamp Share Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Ink, Stamp, Share group and the theme is 'Celebration' and I have used the Butterfly Kisses dsp and the Celebrating You stamp set and the Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders.  I've made a card for a very special young lady - my eldest Grandaughter. Here in the UK it is exam season for high school children and she has been working so hard revising for her exams all year, she deserves to do really well.  She is also my little crafting buddy and likes to make cards and sew with me too so I'm looking forward to the exams being over and us being able to spend some crafty time together.


1 piece of night of navy card stock 4 1/8" x 11 1/2", 1 piece 1 3/4" x 3 1/4"
1 piece of fresh freesia card stock 3 3/4" x 3 7/8", 2 pieces 1 3/4" x 3 7/8", 1 piece 5 1/4" x 3 7/8"
1 piece of basic white card stock 5" x 3 5/8"
1 piece of dsp 3 1/2" x 3 5/8", 2 pieces 1 1/2" x 3 5/8", scraps to fussy cut some butterflies

On the long side score the navy card at 4" and 9 1/2" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Add the mats and layers to the front and inside front of the card, I've used the reverse of one piece as a contrast.

Stamp a sentiment on the white card and adhere to the inside of the card.

Run the small piece of navy through the machine in the Embossing Folder, I chose the piece that had the word 'Bravo'.  Add this to the centre of the card front overlapping the narrower side of the gatefold.

Fussy cut some butterflies, I've added two using dimensionals to the sentiment layer and adhered a whole one and a partial image on the inside.

I do hope she likes it, I'm going to give it her at the end of the exams, we won't know how she's done until the summer but I'm very proud of her whatever happens.

Please pop over and see what everyone else has been making too.
