This gorgeous card was one of the cards I made on Saturday in Maine! It was designed by my friend and fellow demonstrator, Sherri Everett! She held a card buffet where you could go and make as many cards as you wanted, and it was so much fun! It ended up taking me almost five hours to get there, so I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked, but I still got to make six full cards, and I took four kits home to make with supplies I have at home. Sherri’s designs are really beautiful! This was the first one that caught my eye, as green is my favorite color, and there are multiple shades of green on this card. Plus I LOVE dragonflies, so this was one I definitely needed to make!
This card features the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, as well as the NEW Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper! Layering Circles Framelits were used to cut the circle with the dragonfly, as well as the scalloped piece behind it. It’s embellished with Burlap Ribbon, as well as some Linen Thread, and the sentiment piece was trimmed with Paper Snips, but the Triple Banner Punch could be used as well!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Thick Whisper White card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 and folded in half)
Tranquil Tide middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
DSP top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Whisper White circle: 2-11/16 inches in diameter
Tranquil Tide scalloped circle: 2-13/16 inches in diameter
Burlap Ribbon piece: 3-1/2 inches
Old Olive banner/sentiment piece: 3 x 1/2 inches
One thing I really love about the Designer Series Paper that Sherri used for this card, is that some of the designs have beautiful, iridescent accents! This design is one of them, and I tried to get some good pictures of the accents, but it’s hard to see. All of the largest flowers on this design have the iridescent finish, and they are so pretty in person! It adds such a nice touch to this card!
I have many more cards that I made on my trip, and I will share them with you hopefully over the next few weeks!
