Perfect cards for Spring Time!!
- Start out with a half-sheet of light yellow card stock, score your paper in the middle and fold the card in half.
- Next, open the card flat and stamp your Dragonfly Body image on the INSIDE OF THE CARD on the right side using Versafine Clair Ink, Medieval Blue. Use Crystal Embossing Powder and heat-set it. Then place a piece of decorative paper on the INSIDE OF THE CARD on the left side.
- Now, with the card open, score your paper AGAIN this time coming from the right side of the card, score it it at 2 1/8" making sure NOT TO SCORE over the dragonfly body!
- Use an X-acto Knife to cut out the Dragonfly Body on the LEFT SIDE OF THE SCORE LINE ONLY. Once you have trimmed the body of the dragonfly, you can fold the flap of the right side of the dragonfly body so it creates a tri-fold card.
- Next, stamp the Dragonfly Wings on a piece of thick vellum using the Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink pad and use White Diamond Embossing Powder. Then heat-set your image. Also stamp little dragonflies on the decorative paper we placed on the left side of the card
- Fussy-cut the 2 sets of Dragonfly Wings. We suggest you keep the top and bottom wings connected so you can easily adhere them in place with a little bit of Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Make sure to just adhere the wings at the Dragonfly Body base and leave the rest of the Wings free-floating
- Then, use 2 of your Hero Arts Nesting Oval dies to die-cut a thin oval out of light pink card stock. Use Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to adhere the oval on the decorative paper.. it's ok if you cover up your little dragonflies just slightly.
- When you close the tri-fold card, your Dragonfly should look like it is resting in the middle of the thin pink oval.. kind of giving the impression of a dragonfly landing on a lake!!
- Start with a piece of white card stock and use the Versafine ink, Onyx. Wendy used this ink to stamp the fairy image in the middle of her card stock THEN went back in with the Zen Rose stamp and stamped around the fairy image
- Then, Wendy sprinkled on Embossing Powder. She put Crystal Embossing Powder on the fairy (then shook off the excess) and then covered the rest of the image with Detail Clear Embossing Powder. Then she heat-set the entire image.
- Wendy used a coral-colored piece of card stock as her card base. She used the Hero-Arts nesting Rectangles to cut out an oval in a piece of pink card stock
- Adhere the stamped fairy image/zen roses to the coral-colored card base and finish off the card by adhering the oval cut-out on top of the image.
It is *so magical* and brings me so much joy!!
- Start with die-cutting the Happy Birthday Edger paper out of white felt-weave card stock
- Use the Picket Fence Blending Brushes and 3 colors of Distress Ink: Seedless Preserves, Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint to create a beautiful ombre color on the Happy Birthday die-cut.
- Now use the Aqua Shimmer Pen to color across the entire die-cut so the colors of ink now look *iridescent* and magical
- Use a card base that is a darker shade of purple. Wendy used a small strip of paper from the Graphic 45 Bloom Collection above and below the sentiment.
- Use pop-dots to add dimension to a few of the letters of the Happy Birthday die-cut... this adds interest and makes it MORE FUN!!
