This graduation card was created for sweet Rachel.
I created this card for the Bo Bunny Card Challenge Tuesday Sketch using the fabulous June "Seaside Cottage" Kit from Scrap-Friendzy.
The scalloped medallion is a piece of sheet metal that I die cut with a Spellbinder's Nestability die. You could use any kind of die cut machine (I've never tried cutting it on my Gazelle (similar to a Cricut). Be sure to select a die shape that will fit into the die folder, so the entire sheet of metal will be embossed. Once embossed, I dabbed with alcohol inks until I achieved this mottled appearance.
I stamped two different butterfly images on Bo Bunny Double Dot Almond paper, & the celebrate image on Double Dot Ocean paper. Then I fussy cut the images.
A border was punched from the Ocean Dot paper then inked for dimension. The base of the card is Almond Dot, and I cut a section of Gabrielle Dot for the card background. A length of Aquamarine Double Dot ribbon tops the card.
Here is a shot of the inside of the card:
Here you can see the dot side of the almond Double Dot paper, and the mat for the sentiment is more of the Ocean Double Dot Paper.
