For My Friend Dragonfly


Card size: 5 x 7”. Cut white cardstock 7 1/4" x 10” then fold in half to make 5 x 7 1/4". Place outer die of the Fancy Classic Oval onto cardstock so that top of die overhangs folded top of card by about 1/4". Cut another front using the same die, glue it to the front of card base matching edges at sides and bottom.

Using the outer die and decorative die together, cut a silver frame, glue it to the outside edge of card. Also cut from silver the inner decorative die. Die cut darker blue paper using the plain die just 1 down from the outer frame die then glue it inside silver frame on card.

Cut the inner decorative die again from light blue cutting the oval center out so that silver shows. Off-set and glue the blue to the silver. You should still have a large silver oval in the center.Die cut the smallest decorative oval from purple and blue combination paper then glue it to the silver center.

Stamp the dragonfly 3 times on vellum using embossing ink. Use silver embossing powder to heat emboss dragonflies. Die cut then paint the backs with Clean Color Markers. Glue bodies together leaving wings free. Add 2 tiny blue rhinestones for the eyes. Cut foam tape or pop ups under the dragonfly body then attach to card on right side.

Stamp For My Friend using Deep Purple then die cut. Set aside.

Stamp the Sweet Pea flowers using Garden Patina then sponge with a combination of Cactus Flower, Garden Patina and Deep Purple. Die cut then shape in the mold. Finish shaping with the Groove Golf Tools. Glue 2 parts together to form each flower. Fill centers with silver Prills and glitter flowers.

Stamp leaves using Leaf Green, sponge with Chartreuse, die cut and shape in mold. Paint leaves with a mix of 3-D Lacquer and shimmer additive.

Create a bouquet with the flowers and leaves on the left side then glue the sentiment between the dragonfly and the flowers.
