Three Little Strips

Hi!  How are you today?  Me, I am on top of the world!  Thank you so much to those who commented on Saturday’s post – either directly on the post or via email.  You truly made my day and my heart full.

Today, I have a card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the January-June Mini Catalog.  I heart Dragonflies and Butterflies and have a hard time resisting suites that contain them.

I love the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper – the colors are so me!  I wanted to share how you can use strips of Designer Series Paper to enhance your creations.

For this card, the strips are all 1″ wide.  The two shorter ones are 3 1/4″ in length and the bumble bee strip is 4″ in length.   The dragonfly is punched from a different piece of Designer Series Paper in the pack.  The colors are Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee.   The sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight.   I did add a touch of sparkle to the dragonfly with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (hard to see in the picture – will try and highlight that next time I do it).

For this second card, I rotated the design to be portrait.

While all supplies measure the same, I did feel like I had a bit more white space, so I also stamped the small grouping of dragonflies in the along the right hand edge in Bumble Bee.

Here are the full measurements:

  • Base – Misty Moonlight – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded
  • Basic White – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Two strips of Designers Series Paper – 1″ x 3 1/4″
  • One strip of Designer Series Paper – 1″ x 4″
  • Bumble Bee – 2″ x 2 3/4″
  • Scraps of Designer Series Paper or Basic White – either punch dragonflies from Designer Series Paper or stamp on Basic White and punch

Don’t be afraid to alter the layout or sketch – it is fun to get those creative juices flowing.  I’ll share another layout using the strips tomorrow.

The Dragonfly Garden Bundle is part of the Dandy Garden Suite.  I hope you will check it out in my on-line store!

Thanks for stopping by!
