Heartfelt Creations - Dragonfly Slimline

Hi and welcome!

I'm so excited that spring is finally here. I just wish it felt a little more like spring. lol

My card today is a slimline that's easy to mail in a regular envelope. 

Instructions: Card size is 9 x 4”. Score and fold 9 x 8” white cardstock at 4” on the short side to create top fold card base. Cut Luxe Silver Cardstock x2 - 8 7/8 x 3 7/8” and white cardstock x2 – 8 5/8 x 3 5/8”. Using a corner punch, round all of the corners. Stamp one of the white pieces with the sentiment ‘I am so grateful for you’ from the For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet inks. Stamp the dragonflies using Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks. Adhere to silver cardstock and adhere to inside of the card.

Dry emboss the other white cardstock using Anna Griffin Slimline Georgette Lace Embossing Folder, adhere to the silver cardstock and adhere to the card front using dimensional tape. Cut a silver eyelet circle frame using the second largest eyelet die from Decorative Circle Frame Die and the third largest plain die from the Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die and adhere to the center of the card front using foam strips.

Using the Decorative Dragonfly, Daydream Florals and Dragonfly Florals Cling Stamp sets, stamp on white cardstock using VersaMark, cover with Ranger Superfine Detail Silver Embossing Powder, heat set and diecut using the coordinating dies. Color the florals using daubers and Distress Oxide inks – Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. Leave the dragonflies white. Lightly shape all elements using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.

Stamp the dragonflies again on vellum using Frost White ink, cover with WOW Metallic Silver Embossing Glitter. Color the backs using the same inks and diecut using the coordinating dies. Adhere the vellum dragonflies on the white diecut dragonflies by adding glue just to the bodies. You want to keep the wings free. Bend the wings up to give the appearance of flight.

Adhere the flowers and dragonflies as pictured using hot glue, sponge with dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni’s Crystal Clear glitter.

Add a few color coordinating sequins to the inside and outside of the card.
