Heartfelt Creations - Special Day Dragonfly

 Hi and welcome!

"Add the beauty of fluttering dragonflies for crafting projects of all shapes and sizes! From focal points, to finishing touches, the decorative dragonflies are the perfect addition to every crafty stash! So join us as we add more fluttering beauty to our florals and papercrafting, and delight in the ease of bringing more life to our crafting projects...Introducing the NEW Decorative Dragonfly Collection!"

Here's my first project using this gorgeous collection.

Instructions: Card size is 5 x 7”. Score and fold 10 x 7’ white cardstock at 5” on the long side to create side fold card base. Cut x2 Luxe Silver cardstock 4 7/8 x 6 7/8” and x2 sheet 5A from the Decorative Dragonfly Paper Collection. Ink the edges of the designer paper with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink and adhere to the silver cardstock. Stamp ‘Have a wonderful Birthday’ from Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Wilted Violet ink on one and adhere to the inside of the card. Stamp ‘Hope your day is as special as you are’ from the same set on the other designer paper using Frost White ink, cover with WOW Embossing Glitter – Sparkling Snow and heat set using the Heat It tool. Adhere to the card front using dimensional tape.

Diecut the Simply Classic Oval frame from white cardstock, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear Glitter and heat set. Cut again from Luxe silver cardstock and adhere the two frames together, slightly offset so that the silver is just peeking through. Adhere to the card front over the sentiment using dries clear adhesive.

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.

Stamp the dragonflies again on vellum using Frost White ink, cover with WOW Metallic Silver Embossing Glitterand heat emboss using the Heat It Tool. 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 extra sparkle to the card, inside and out, by dabbing randomly with dries clear adhesive and sprinkling with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.
