It’s Springtime!

Hello and welcome to day 2 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! Since spring is right around the corner, or at least according to the calendar (lol), I wanted to create something bright and cheerful and the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, some Pear Pizzazz, and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits has created this beautiful card!

The card base is Pear Pizzazz cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the base layer is from Springtime Foils Designer DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

I first started with a Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and colored in the leaves on the DSP. (Whether it’s a Stampin’ Write Marker or a Stampin’ Blends, they both work wonderfully with this DSP!) The smaller detailed dragonfly thinlit was used on a piece of Silver Foil paper and then the coordinating outline thinlit was used on a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock, with just the body of the two pieces glued together so the wings can be spread apart.

The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. This is then cut out using the 2nd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I placed some Snail on the back to adhere the Silver Metallic Thread you see poking out from behind.

The DSP is adhered to the card base, the sentiment is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the dragonfly is adhered with two Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, one for the middle of the body and once cut in half for the head and tail.

Looking for a cheerful card? This is it! Looking for a quick and easy card? This is it! You could always change the sentiment up, use a punch instead of a thinlit, or even just cut a piece of cardstock!

Please contact me if you have any questions about the products used on this or any other project. I hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for stopping by!

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
