Dragonfly Dreams

dragonflymintYep…you know I LOVE this!  I thought I’d share another card I made using thing set and matching thinlits.

This is a version of the card I made for the Control Freak Swap.  Although I used the stencil from the Holiday Mini on this, when I did my swap, I stamped the scattered dotted background stamp twice and it gave a very similar look.  This is definitely one of those…it looks sooo much better in person kind of cards!

Here’s the details..

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp greeting using Smoky Slate and scattered dot image twice using Mint Macaron, add band to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White THICK – cut out the large flourish and add to card front front
  • Mint Macaron – cut out the medium detailed dragonfly and add to card front
  • Add some Basic Rhinsetones to finish off!

Don’t you just LOVE simple!  I know I do!  And speaking of simple…

  • Copper Foil – cut out 2 large outline leaf and 2 small outline leaf, and 1 large flower center and 1 small flower center
