Today’s card was made with several retiring products:
- Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper
- Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (40% off!!)
- Holiday Rhinestones
- Dragonfly Garden Bundle (the products in the bundle are NOT retiring, but the bundle price is)
All retiring products are available while supplies last!
I started with a piece a Thick Basic White cardstock and then cut two pieces of Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (you can find the measurements below the Supply List) and a piece of Night of Navy cardstock that I ran through the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered all three pieces to the card front.
Next, I cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the stamp set, Dragonfly Garden. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.
Using Memento Ink, I stamped a dragonfly from the stamp set, Dragonfly Garden onto Basic White cardstock. I colored it using our Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 (don’t let the words watercolor scare you, I didn’t use any water). I colored the wings with the Night of Navy pencil and then used Garden Green around the edges. Then, I used a Blender Pen to blend the colors together. It’s amazing how nice it looks when you use the Blender Pen. I punched it out using the Dragonflies Punch, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back, and adhered it to the rectangle.
To complete the card, I added three Holiday Rhinestones to the front. As I mentioned earlier, these rhinestones are retiring. I love these rhinestones and they aren’t just for the holidays! I love that there’s a variety of colors to use. Grab them while you can!
Since you’ve read this far, I want to share a funny moment . When I went to photograph today’s card, I realized that I made a mistake and it’s one that I always try to check before adhering my pieces to the card front! Sheesh! I cut the panel off and put it on another base, correctly!! Ha, ha!! Has this happened to you before? If it hasn’t, just wait!
