Thank You for Being my Friend - Dandy Garden & Here's a Card

Hello again. December is such a busy time of year isn't it? Like you, I am busy with family, work and crafting. As my children approach the Australian summer school holidays, I find I am filled with thoughts of many hours of restful crafting. I am not sure that my plans will eventuate but I am planning on trying to achieve that goal. One of the things, I remind myself is that simple is good. Today's card kind of reflects that. I used a mixture of elements today which were inspired by the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper.

Today's card uses the Here's a Card stamp set, with the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper, and both Dandy Garden and Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper. I also chose colours today that were not part of the Dandy Garden Suite coordinating colours as the products are so versatile that they can be used with any colour palette.

The Dandy Garden suite will be released in the January to June 2021 mini catalogue but if you join my team, you will be able to order these products from December 1st 2020. Don't forget that Sale-A-bration starts in January, and you will be able to get free products for every AUD $90 spent.


- Use a Night of Navy card base - A4 cut in half lengthwise and folded. 

- Use a coordinating piece of the Playing with Patterns DSP and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card. 

- Use a smaller piece of Melon Mambo cardstock (same size as the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper) and emboss it with the Subtle Embossing Folder.

- Attach the Dandy Garden Laser-Cut Paper with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the Melon Mambo card (I dotted glue behind the frame and the larger leaves).

- Attach the Melon Mambo/Dandy Garden Laser-Cut to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp 'Thank you for being my friend' from the 'Here's a Card' Stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White card using Night of Navy Ink. Trim the Whisper White card and back with a coordinating piece of the Playing with Patterns DSP.

- Attach the sentiment to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals 

- Punch a blue Dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP using the Dragonflies Punch and attach the dragonfly to the card using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Use Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some interest to your card.

- Attach a piece of Whisper White card to the inside of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and stamp a swarm of dragonflies using Night of Navy ink.
