In the lead up to World Card Making Day on October 7, I participated in a challenge where each day, for 7 days, a card was to be created in accordance with challenge rules. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, however, the last rule was my favourite. It was to create a card for someone special. This card was created for a friend who has been there for me at all times, even when her circumstances haven’t been the best. I am truly blessed to be able to call her my friend.
This was also the first time I’ve used this particular Dragonfly thinlit die and I love it! I decided to keep the colours simple. I used Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake inks.
To create this card I used a Whisper White card base. Matted it with Blushing Bride card stock, on top of that I adhered a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Fresh Florals DSP stack.
On the front panel I stamped the background using stamps from the Timeless Textures stamp set in both Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake inks.
Using Blushing Bride cardstock, I die cut the dragonflies. To add a little shimmer to the dragonflies I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.
The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and was stamped in Crumb Cake ink.
Added 3 small pearls for the embellishments.
I also stamped the envelope and inside of the card.
Card base: A4 sheet cut in half lengthwise and then folded in half.
Blushing Bride matt: 5⅝ x 3⅞” (14.3 x 9.8cm)
DSP: 5½ x 3¾” (14 x 9.6cm)
Front panel: 4¾ x 3″ (12 x 7.5cm)
Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
