Dragonfly Dreams Wedding Card

Hello, Crafter.

I hope you've had a great weekend.

I'm pleased to say I've made all my swaps, and they're all labelled and bagged up ready for Amsterdam. 

I've also made one for each of my March customers, and I've made the video ready for next Sunday. 

Just two more videos to make and I'm ready for Amsterdam!

Today's card uses a Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper dragon fly that had been die cut for a previous project but not used. 

It already had the Pink Pirouette backing behind the wings - stamped with a stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set - so that decided the colour of my card!

I started with a base of Pink Pirouette Cardstock (CS) with a layer of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. 

The top layer is a sheet of Pink Pirouette CS which has been dry embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.

I adhered this layer to the Glimmer Paper using Glue Dots, and then I adhered it to the card base using Tombow.

Using some Pink Pirouette CS, I die cut the smaller of the two dies in the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.

I cut it to the width to fit the width of the top embossed layer. 
Then I took a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and used the cutting edge die that's in the set of Thinlits.

I cut a piece approxiamately 1/8" taller than the decorative Pink Pirouette die cut, so I had an edge appearing a little bit higher.
I adhered this die cut to the Glimmer Paper using Glue Dots, and then adhered the two pieces to the card front using Tombow. 

Using Pink Pirouette Ink, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Pink Pirouette CS and then dipped it into Clear Embossing Powder. I heat set this using my Heat Tool, and die cut it using the Stitched Shapes Oval die no. 2. 

I layered it onto a scalloped Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper oval I'd die cut using the Layering Oval Framelits Dies, scallop die no 3, and adhered the two together using Glue Dots.

I adhered the dragonfly and the sentiment using Dimensionals. 

My final touch was to adhere a sheet of Whisper White CS inside the card. 

I stamped two small dragonflies in Pink Pirouette Ink in the bottom right hand corner. 

This dragonfly is in the Touches of Texture Stamp Set. 

I've been extravagent using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper on this card, but I think it would still look good with regular Whisper White CS.

Unfortunately, my photographic skills haven't improved at all, and the colour leaves a lot to be desired, particularly the Glimmer Paper!

That's it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
