Dragonfly dreams card

The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies from Stampin' Up! were one of my 'must have' bundles from the 2017 Occasions catalogue.


You can make quick and easy cards using this set or step it up with additional layers, embossing, bling and metallic thread.


To make the smaller notecard, I started with a Whisper White Stampin' Up! notecard and stamped the dots from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in both Tempting Turquoise and Bermuda Bay.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then diecut the five dragonflies in Basic Black card stock using one die from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits set - they come out of the die already joined together and I just needed to adhere them onto the card.  Quick and easy to do.


To make the stepped up version, I started with base of Bermuda Bay card stock and added a layer of Tempting Turquoise over the top which had been embossed with the Woodgrain textured impressions embossing folder.  I then layered another piece of Bermuda Bay onto the card base.  The same centrepiece as for the notecard above was created, but I added some Silver Metallic Thread under the Dragonflies before adhering them to the Whisper White card stock.  I brushed some Wink of Stella over the Dragonflies to make them sparkle and added a Rhinestone in the centre of each for a little extra bling too. Some Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon was placed under the sentiment which had been diecut using a die from the Bunch of Banners set. The Whisper White centre piece was then added to the card base.
