May good things grow - Dandy Garden

Hello again. Hope you have been having a great week. I have had a hectic week after On Stage 2020, with family health issues (broken bone, orthodontic visits etc), as well as running a class using the Christmas Countdown Project Kit which was a lot of fun. 

Today's card is another one using the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and Dandy Garden Designer Series Papers from Stampin' Up!®. These will be available in the January to June 2021 mini catalogue. I mentioned previously that I love the bold colours in these papers, and I loved using that boldness for this card. 

 I used a standard Blackberry Bliss A4 card base cut in half and folded. I attached a card front sized piece of Smoky Slate cardstock leaving a 1/8" (3mm) border using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

- I then cut a piece of the Dandy Garden 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to the same size as the Smoky Slate piece. 

- I measured the half way point on both the long and short side of the Dandy Garden DSP Piece and drew a pencil line on the back of the paper to give me a guide. It meant that I had an intersecting point in the middle so I could guide my cutting line.

-  I used my trimmer and cut along the line at the middle of the long side of the DSP cutting down to half way into the paper using my pencil lines to guide me. (see the photo below)

- I then scored the "cut pieces" at a diagonal from the outer corner to the midpoint of the card. 

- I then folded them backwards to reveal the opposite side off the DSP. 

- I stamped an sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set onto the Smoky Slate cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used my Stamparatus to guide the placement as I wanted to make sure it was visible and not covered by the folds of the DSP.

- I then attached the Dandy Garden DSP to the Smoky Slate card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I popped some Stampin' Dimensionals under the folded corners to keep them in position and given them a little bit of lift.

- I punched out one of the dragonfly images from one of the Dandy Garden DSP. As the Dragonflies Punch punches a small and large dragonfly at the time, I used the smaller image that it cut from the same DSP but flipped it over. I attached the larger dragonfly using Stampin' Dimensionals and the smaller one using Liquid Glue.

- I added some bling using the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and one of the sweet little ladybug trinkets which are seriously my absolute favourite thing from this suite.

- I used Bumblebee Classic Stampin' Pad ink to stamp dragonflies on the inside of the card on a piece of Whisper White card which I then attached to the Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
