1 Card – 3 Ways

Now…I am sure this NEVER happens to you…you sit down to make something and you have something very specific in mind and when you are done…well, you sort of took a left at your stampin’ desk!  Today I sat down to make a card for the casology challenge – wings.  When I finished…it looked like this…

Now don’t get me wrong…LOVE IT!  But it was NOT the card I set out to make!  So I decided to make the one I set out to make and I came up with this…

So…funny thing about this card…LOVE IT…but STILL not the card I set out to make.  Well…you know what they say…3rd time’s the charm and here’s my third card…

dragonfly3Now we’re talking…THIS is the card I had intended to make when I started out this morning!  Really all the components are pretty much the same…

  • Base card (either Perfect Plum or Whisper White) – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Layer (either Perfect Plum or Whisper White) – 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Top two run completely through the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder, last one only the top 2/3.  Add using dimensionals.
  • Strips – first one Silver glimmer – 5/8 x 3 7/8 an 3/8 x 3 7/8, second one Mint Macaron – two strips 1/4 x 3 7/8, and third one 1/4 x 3 7/8.
  • Cut two different sized Lots of Labels from Whisper White, stamp splatter in Mint Macaron and greeting in Night of Navy, later using dimensionals and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp dragonfly using Perfect Plum on Whisper White, cut out and add to card fronts.
  • For third card, add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

    I love them all, Mary! Beautiful and definitely something I shall try on my own. I never say CASE because even if I start out trying to CASE something, it never turns out as I saw it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. They are all gorgeous. I can’t pick a favorite.

  3. The last one with th e sparkle and bling!! Great job!!

  4. They are all fabulous Mary! But if I had to pick one… the 2nd one! I love the balance of colours!
    Thanks for joining us at CASology!

  5. Hey Mary!! Such a great set of cards. Great color choices.Hey Kara!! Awesome card. Super CAS. I love how you inked the corner with those vibrant colors. Thank you so much for playing us this week at CASology.

  6. Hey Mary!! I’m not sure why my comment combine your comment with another one. I’m sorry about that. I tried to delete it but I couldn’t. So sorry about that.

  7. The 1st is my favorite because I love purple! All are very nice.

  8. I liked each one as much as the one before….but really couldn’t pick just one of them however my DH is going to be unhappy because now you are making me want that stamp set. Thought I could resist it because the dragonfly was really the one image that I liked….and now I like that dragonfly way too much! Gonna have to go buy that renegade framelit for the dragonfly, too….oye!!!
