Dragonfly Card

We made this card in class last month.

The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Elegant Eggplant--score in half (4 1/4)
Gold Foil is 5 1/4 x 4--I cut the solid dragonfly out of the middle of this piece.
2 1/2 x 1 1/4 Gold Foil for the greeting.
Perfect Plum 5 x 3 3/4--This piece is scored on the diagonal every inch.  Fold all the lines & sponge with the Elegant Eggplant ink.

The lacy dragonfly is cut out of Gold Glitter paper.  Mount onto the solid gold  with 2 glue dots.  One on the head & one on the body.  
Glue gold & scored layers onto the card front.  Now you can put the dragonfly on the card front with 2 dimensionals.  One under each wing.

The words were embossed using Versa Mark ink & Gold embossing powder.  I used the Paper Piercing Tool in each corner.  This just gives the card a little more "pop".
Mount unto the card front with 4 dimensionals.

The last step is to put a little dot of the Gold Dazzling Details where the lines crossed.

This card I made the same way except I scored it every 1 1/4.  Of course this one is not on the diagonal.  I just wanted to do it a different way & use different colors.   I did not put the gold foil layer on this card.  It was a lot easier & faster to make.   I like them both!

The stamp set is DRAGONFLY DREAMS & it has matching framelits!

Happy Stampin
