New Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Card

Have you seen the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle in the new Occasions Catalog? I think the stamp set, and matching Thinlets Dies are sure to be a favorite. The idea for this card came from the card pictured right on the Occasions Catalog. I changed it up a bit, and truly love the results. I usually don't add this many details on a card, but it is for a very special person whose birthday is this week.

I started with a Daffodil Delight card base. I stamped the dots design element stamp directly on the card base with Crushed Curry Ink, then immediately covered it with clear embossing powder. You can use embossing powder with most of our ink pads if you're quick enough. It really adds a nice detail. I used Crushed Curry Ink for the dragonfly as well, then cut her out with the matching die. The second layer is another die from the set. I cut it out with our Vellum Card Stock, then cut the body off to just leave the wings. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark, then embossed with Pewter Embossing Powder. She is layered on one of the labels from the Lots of Labels Thinlets Dies that was embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged just a little Sahara Sand Ink on the front. This was a fun, fun card to make!

Here is a list of the supplies I used:
