This weekend, I wanted to make some cards with colors I rarely use. I have my favorite colors, but Stampin’ Up! has such a huge, gorgeous color palette, that I really need to start using some of the other colors more often! For this card I decided to use Tempting Turquoise as the main color, and added some silver accents to make it pop! The flourish comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, and the sentiment comes from the Barn Door set. I also cut a dragonfly from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies, and finished it off with Silver 3/8 Inch Metallic-Edge Ribbon!
The measurements for this card are as follows:
Thick Whisper White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Tempting Turquoise middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Whisper White top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
The dragonfly was cut from a series of five dragonflies that are all actually part of one die. I only cut the top two and then trimmed one using Paper Snips. I chose to do it in silver in order to match the silver on the edge of the metallic ribbon. Plus, I wanted to give the card some extra shine! Here’s a peek at the full Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits set:
