I had some time to play in my craft room today to create this card with some dies from Honey Bee Stamps:
I decided to use the dragonfly from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Lovely Layers: bugs‘ for the first time. The wings were created by using a pink and a mustard alcohol ink and dropped them onto a piece of vellum – let them move around a little – and die cut the wings from the reverse side – catching some pink and some of the yellow/mustard.
The body of the dragonfly is die cut from a previously created ink smooshed green panel, and the wings layered on top…….I had to check whether to glue them to the top of the bottom of the body first……for some reason my mind went blank.
I dry embossed a diagonal border onto a white panel – using the reverse of the embossing for the smaller lines – cut this panel down slightly, and adhered to the card base.
The greetings banner was created by die cutting the main banner three times, setting the sentiment part into the top one, and colouring the second layer with a pink Copic to get some pink to shine through the words.
The arch frame was die cut, then the middle of the arch is a piece of vellum which had been passed through the Xyron to enable it to stick to the base panel without having to worry about where to put dots of glue.
