Pop-up Dragonfly Garden


Create a 6 x 6” fold flat pop up card. Cut white cardstock 6 x 12” and lay landscape in Scor-Pal scoring at 3, 6, 9” and burnish mountain, valley and mountain. Mat and layer Decorative Dragonfly Paper Collection sheets 5A and 8B onto all four panels. Cut white cardstock strips at 3", 4", 5” and score 1/2” tabs at each end. Line with 8B between the score lines. Cut white cardstock at 3/4” x 6 7/8” score 1/2” tabs at each end and one down the centre. Line with sheet 8B between score lines adding additional depth if you want to snip in grass blades with scissors. When the glue has set use a bone folder to add a curl to the 1/2”strips. Onto the back of the larger strip adhere the shortest strip to the centre (you will need to momentarily press down the curl). Adhere the next size directly over and again the next size over that (each tab will sit next to the previous tab). Die-cut Royal Gateway in Luxe Silver Cardstock and adhere to the front grass strip, only add Dries Clear where the gate touches the grass, snip open the gates. Fold tabs inward and adhere onto the card blank ensuring the centre score lines line up with each other.

Onto white cardstock stamp Decorative Dragonfly, Daydream Florals and Dragonfly Florals with white pigment ink Versacolor and white heat emboss. Stamp the second dragonfly wings with Versacolor onto velum and heat emboss Bridal Tinsel. Die-cut with the co-ordinating die-sets.

Colour the flowers with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and waterpen, allow the colour to flow over the lines to help see the white on white.
