French Gate Dragonfly
Card size is 5 x 7”. Score and fold 10 x 7” white cardstock at 5” on the long side. Cut Luxe Silver cardstock x2 – 4 7/8 x 6 7/8”. Cut Decorative Dragonfly Paper Collection sheet 1B x2 – 4 5/8 x 6 5/8”, ink the edges with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink. Stamp ‘I’m thinking of you’ sentiment from For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp Set on one of the designer papers using Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink and stamp a dragonfly on the same paper from Decorative Dragonfly Cling Stamp set using Distress Oxide Peacock feathers. Adhere this to one of the silver pieces and adhere to the inside of the card using dries clear adhesive. Using the Bow-It-All and sheer ribbon, make a triple loop bow and adhere to the other designer paper, adhere to the silver cardstock and adhere to the card front using dries clear adhesive.
Using the French Gate Die, cut x2, once from white cardstock and once from Luxe Silver Cardstock. Sponge the white diecut with dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. When dry, adhere the two diecuts together, slightly offset, and adhere to the card front.
Stamp the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Florals Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using VersaMark, cover with Ranger Superfine Detail Silver Embossing Powder, heat set and diecut using the coordinating die. Stamp the dragonfly again on vellum using Frost White ink, cover with WOW Metallic Silver Embossing Glitter. Color the back using Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks and diecut using the coordinating die. Adhere the vellum dragonfly on the white diecut dragonfly by adding glue just to the bodies. You want to keep the wings free. Bend the wings up to give the appearance of flight. Adhere to the French Gate Diecut. Sponge with dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni’s Crystal Clear glitter.
Add extra sparkle to the card, inside and out, by dabbing randomly with dries clear adhesive and sprinkling with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.
