Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card


I have been reminiscing lately about when I first was introduced to Stampin' Up! and cardmaking.  I did not have all the amazing Stampin' Up! products I have today, so I was a little more limited in what I could do.  When I saw this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I knew it was an opportunity to make something great, without a lot of product! 
This sketch is great for a beginner stamper.   If you don't have Designer Series Paper, you can color strips of Basic White cardstock, or use ribbon as your strips!  

How to Make This Card
  1. Cut a card base, 5-1/2" X 8-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
  2. Cut 3 strips of Designer Series Paper to 1/2" X 4"
  3. Attach the bottom strip to the card base
  4. Stamp the sentiment above the glued on strip, toward the left of the card
  5. Stamp an image on another piece of cardstock
  6. Attach the other two strips of DSP
  7. Punch or cut out the image
  8. Attach the image over the strips of DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals
