Here is another card that I have made for my card making group’s swap, the theme for this is “Dancing Dragonflies”.
Cardstock: White, green, black
Ink: Memento: Bamboo Leaves
Paper: Heartfelt Creations: “Winking Frog”
Dies: Heartfelt Creations: Eyelet Oval, Elizabeth Craft: Small Dragonfly
Embossing folder: Stampin’ Up: Woodgrain
Other: Foam tape, double sided tape, chameleon markers
First I cut out the piece of of paper from the Winking Frog paper pad, then using the #2 die from the Eyelet Oval die set, cut out the oval centre piece.
I cut the card base from white cardstock to fit the paper, and then cut the front of the card base in half. I cut a piece of green cardstock the same size as the front of the card, and embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder. I then sponged all edges with Bamboo Leaves ink.
I adhered the larger piece of paper inside the card, and the green embossed cardstock to the front of the card with double sided tape. I attached the oval to the front of the card with foam tape, lining it up so that it fit on top of the oval cut out from the paper.
To finish, using the small dragonfly die, I cut out the overlay from black cardstock and the wing and tail shadow pieces from white cardstock. I coloured the white cardstock with chameleon markers, and adhered the pieces together with glue. I attached the completed dragonfly to the front of the card with foam tape.
Bye for now,
