Dragonfly Dreams & Butterfly Basics

Here's a card that looks detailed and time consuming but it was actually fairly quick and easy to make.

The ferns from Butterfly Basics were stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and then ran through the Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. The dragonfly, from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, is a 2 step image so the hand colored look is easily achieved by using the second solid layer over the detailed image. I like to use a sponge dauber to apply a second, darker color to the solid image before stamping.

The "thanks" sentiment is from the Jar of Love stamp set and was die cut using the Stitched Shape Framelits. To finish off the card I ran a piece of 1/4" Copper Trim across bottom and attached the die cut sentiment piece and dragonfly with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I used only two ink pads...Lemon Lime Twist & Tranquil Tide.

Have a great weekend!
