I recently made some cards using Stampin' Up!'s Dragonfly Dreams stamps and dies. I'm going to show you one of the cards today. I used a technique that I saw on a You Tube video and thought it looked very elegant. Take note. These photographs are not very flattering. I used silver foil paper and glitter cardstock and the light made all the elements look a little glareish.
Here's how I achieved the quilted look of the front panel. I started with a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, turned it on the diagonal and scored every 3/4". Then I turned the panel in the opposite direction and did the same scoring, resulting in the criss cross pattern. I folded all the scored lines and used a sponge daubber with Elegant Eggplant ink along all the edges, both directions.
This card is so much prettier than the photos show. I used some silver glitter drops to accent each crossed line and let it dry. Meanwhile, I die cut the solid dragonfly from silver foil cardstock and the detailed dragonfly from silver glitter cardstock. I layered one on top of the other, leaving the detailed wings loose. I added the sentiment and then matted the entire panel with silver foil onto an Elegant Eggplant card base.
This is a second card with a different sentiment. This photo is a little better. Tomorrow I will showcase a completely different card using the same dragonfly die.
