Well today my card is inspired by two things – a card that my fellow Stamping Up! BFF Angela made this weekend using the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set and second, this week’s color challenge from the Global Design Team!
And here is Angela’s card.
So I used the technique and layout that Angela used on her card and changed the colors for this week’s GDP. Here are the Details for my card:
The card base is Whisper White cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. The next layer is a piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″. Then the 3rd layer is a second piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″.
On the top layer of Whisper White, I stamped the polka dot background stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set with Silver ink and embossed it with Silver embossing powder. Next I used the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly framelits and cut the large dragonfly from the center of the card. I inserted a Dragonfly that I cut with the same framelit with Silver Foil cardstock. NOTE: I used glue dots on the center of the body so the wings are loose and you can bend them to give the card a little dimension. Next I cut a detailed dragonfly from a piece of Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper which I layered over the Silver Foil Dragonfly.
Then I cut a string of the little dragonflies from a scrap of a Delightful Dijon cardstock. I cut apart a string of two dragonflies and a single dragonfly. I colored the dragonflies with the Clear Wink of Stella Pen to add a little glitter to the dragonflies. Then – don’t forget to stamp your sentiment to the card. I used Delightful Dijon ink to stamp the sentiment.
And of course, I used a bling with Rhinestone jewels on the bodies of the dragonflies.
Here are the supplies that I used to make this card:
