Heartfelt Creations - Birthday Glitter

Hi and welcome!

Happy May!!!

Today I have a quick and easy A2 card using the Decorative Dragonfly Collection and the French Courtyard Die that will fit in a regular sized envelope for mailing.

Instructions: Card size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4”. Score and fold white cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2” at 4 1/4” to create top fold card base. Cut Luxe Silver Cardstock x2 - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8” and cut Decorative Dragonfly Paper Collection sheet 3A x2 – 5 1/4 x 4”. Ink the edges of the designer papers with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink, adhere to the silver layers and adhere one to the inside of the card using dries clear adhesive and adhere one to the card front using dimensional tape. Stamp the sentiment ‘To the world you may be one person but to me you are the world' on the inside.

Using the French Courtyard Die, cut the middle dies from white cardstock and Luxe Silver cardstock. Sponge the white diecut with dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. When dry, adhere the two diecuts together, slightly offset, and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the Decorative Dragonfly on white cardstock using VersaMark, cover with Ranger Superfine Detail Silver Embossing Powder, heat set and diecut using the coordinating die. Stamp the dragonfly again on vellum using Frost White ink, cover with WOW Metallic Silver Embossing Glitter. Color the back using Wilted Violet and Picked Rasperry Distress Oxide inks and diecut using the coordinating die. Adhere the vellum dragonfly on the white diecut dragonfly 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 to the card front. 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.
