I’m a bit behind in posting of cards from my April Card Class. But better late then never……right? Here is the first of four designs from April’s class. I was excited to play with my Dragonfly Dreams Bundle when I finally received it. I was perusing Pinterest and found BJ Peters card and decided to have fun and CASE (case and selectively edit) her card. Hers was monochromatic in Blushing Bride. I chose to selectively add a bit of secondary color–smoky slate and used a stamp for the background instead of a watercolor wash. (wink, wink)
BASE: This cute and sparkly Dragonfly Dreams Bundle design starts with a Whisper White base layered with strips of Blushing Bride Diagonal Stripe Background Designer Series Paper.
RECTANGLE STRIP: Stamp the “swoosh” from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set three times, slightly overlapping with Blushing Bride ink. I choose to go this route to make it easier for class stampers. They (okay it’s me) tend to like the consistency of stamping as opposed to watercolor swooshing. (grin)
SENTIMENT: Then stamp “enjoy your special day!” from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Smoky Slate ink. Then die cut the Dragonflies from Blushing Bride Glimmer and popped with Dimensionals. To finish things wrap the card front twice with Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine and tie with a bow.
