Glimmery Detailed Dragonfly card ideas

 

I have such a treat for you today!!  I love these cards created with the Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly thinlits, and the "Falling in Love" designer paper!!   My dear customer Kim from MN sent me a card similar to the one on the right below, and I asked her if I could copy it for some customer thank you cards!!  She agreed and so I created both 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards and 4-1/4" square cards using both of the dragonfly die cuts in the set.  They are cut out with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper! (NOTE:  Cut from the back side of the glimmer paper in your big shot!)

I used this beautiful sheet of paper in the Falling in Love designer paper pack and simply cut it to either 4x4 or 4"x5-1/4" and mounted it onto a folded Sahara Sand card.  Both versions are top folding, but you could easily make them side folding as well.

The dragonfly die cuts are created with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper!

The greeting is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, stamped onto a label die cut from the Rose Garden thinlit die set with Soft Suede ink. Each greeting also has 3 rhinestones for more bling, in case the glimmer paper and Wink of Stella wasn't quite enough. :)

The Lace Doily behind the greeting is cut in 1/2 then overlapped slightly so that if forms more of an oval than a circle.

I just think this card is stunning... I might have to buy more "Falling in Love" paper to make more of these!

SAVE 10% on the money-saving Dragonfly Dreams bundle!!  #144728, includes both the stamp set and framelit dies.

I did take my Clear Wink of Stella pen and "flick" glimmer onto the cards.. hard to see in the photos, but VERY pretty in person.

TIP:  to raise the dragonfly on the card, cut a Stampin' Dimensional in 1/2 and use that behind the body.  Or use the Foam adhesive strips.

Below: the Falling in Love paper... the sheet I used is the 3rd from the bottom of the stack in this photo, but you could use others as well, especially the lace pattern!

Those cards are beautiful Patty, thank you for sharing! I just ordered some of that DSP so I might have to case your pretty card now :)

I just got my paper pack a couple of days ago. That paper is gorgeous. It almost looks like it has glitter in it. Love it so much I may have to order more or I will end up hoarding it.

Kathy Bolam

Patty, you made another stunning card!

Mary Ann Ely

Good evening Patty, I just received one of these gorgeous cards. They are prettier in person... The DAP paper is sooo pretty. I think I best order a few more... It's perfect for these cards. Thank you sooo much for sharing your beautiful cards. Have a great night.

What a darling card you CASE'd. Your papers are so soft and elegant and your dragonflies so sparkly. Beautiful work Patty.

Dianne Keough

Cards are beautiful. Why cut the dragonflies from the back of Glimmer Paper.?
