Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Birthday Card


Hello there! So glad you stopped by to see what's been going on in my craft room.  I am loving today's card.  I have made several using Stampin' Up!'s Dragonfly Garden stamp set, but this is my favorite ♥

The card I made this afternoon was inspired by Sketch Challenge 656 at Sketch Saturday.  This is a great sketch that is very versatile!

I started by stamping the dragonfly on a scrap of window sheet paper using Staz On ink.  Notice I didn't stamp the entire dragonfly on the window sheet paper.  I really just wanted the wings. 
  Then, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the dragonfly on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock. I used a Stampin' Blend to color the inside of the body of the dragonfly on the white cardstock.

Paper Snips made fussy cutting around the dragonflies very easy.  For the dragonfly on the window sheet I cut out the wings and a little bit of the body.  For the dragonfly on white cardstock, I just cut out the body. I used glue dots to attach the wings to the body (place the body on top of the wings).  
As you can see in the 4th picture (below) I cut a Mini Stampin' Dimensional and used it to attach the dragonfly to the card. 

Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 5-1/2" x 4" and Optional ~ 6" x 2-1/2" (envelope flap)
Misty Moonlight ~ 3-1/8" x4-1/2" and 2-1/2" x 5/8"
 Basic White (after cutting with the Rectangle Stitched Dies) ~ 3" x 4-3/8" and 2-3/8" x 1/2"
Basic White inside  ~  5-1/2" x 4"

Each cardstock layer was adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The three ladybugs were attached with Glue Dots.  Aren't they a fun element!?

I stamped a dragonfly on the front of the envelope and added the striped DSP to the envelope flap (not pictured)
