Dragonfly Panel

Morning my crafting friends, welcome to my blog today, I do hope you enjoy your visit and come back again.

Today's post features the free die from one  of the Tattered Lace Magazines, I loved this one with the Dragonfly and felt it had to be made as a feature on the front of my card. I coloured it in with Distress Inks, not being really neat as you can tell! Once I was happy with the colour I inked it up with my Versamark Glue Pad and heat embossed it three times with Clear embossing powder. This gave it a lovely glossy look, unfortunately it does not show up on the photos. I wanted to put a frame around it but as I have no dies that cut a frame as yet I tried to cut one myself, as you can see its not perfect! I embossed a sheet of White card and cut it into two pieces, one I placed behind the Dragonfly panel the other I kept for the base.

For the base card I used Satin card and matted this up with the cut embossed card, then matted and layered up more Satin card and White card, attached some orange organza ribbon round the edge and added the panel on the other side as seen. I then attached these to the base card.

I added a bow using the same ribbon and a Sparklet gem finished off the card. I have not added a sentiment until it is needed.

  2. Good morning Jacquie, when I saw the little picture of this card on my dashboard list I thought " I didn't know tattered lace did a striplet ". You have done a fantastic design, I love it. Love the dragonfly???
    Love how you discribe the girls, if they achieve what they want to do at the moment and I am sure they will, Anna wants to be a surgeon and Beth a vet. Anna has always said that is what she will be, Beth on the other hand did say for a long time she wanted to be a fairy first but if she couldn't be that she just have to be a vet, she is great with animals.
    They come from a long line of medical people. Hazel xx
