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!
