Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
the video tutorial today is an idea on Pinterest that was inspired by Gosia MacKinnon at MyPapercraft.co.uk. Gosia made this Card for her Mum earlier this year and I thought it was absolutely lovely.
I really wanted to make this Card, but using my Dragonfly Dreams Bundle Stamp Set with co-ordinating Dies. It took me some time to work out how to cut the Dragonflies so they would all still be joined up and how I could keep the dragonflies tummy intact once it was folded. I love this Card, as it creates such a lovely surprise for the recipient.
For the Card Base I used the Thick Whisper White Cardstock, layered up with Bermuda Bay and then cut a piece of Whisper White which I placed into my Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added a smaller piece of Bermuda Bay Card to which I placed a piece of Designer Paper.
For the pop-up dragonfly centre in the Card I used a long piece of Whisper White measuring 10 x 2 1/2″ which was scored and folded. The Dragonfly Die is placed on top and run through the Big Shot. I then hand stamped on top of the cut outs using the Dragonfly Stamp and my Bermuda Bay Ink Pad. To add extra special beauty I die cut three Dragonflies out using some of the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper I had from Sale-a-Bration. It has added such sparkle. I love it.
Here is the video showing how I made it using the Textured Wood Embossing Folder, Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP and Dragonfly Stamp Set with co-ordinating Dies. Oh how I love the glitter on this Card!!
