Good morning! Today I have a friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden bundle along with the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. And it’s a fun fold card – a Z-fold that is so simple to make! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I stamped the wildflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel twice. I colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry, Mossy Meadow, Mango Melody, Highland Heather, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. I used my blending brushes to lightly sponge some Balmy Blue ink on the open sky area and some Old Olive ink on the wildflower stems.
I cut a Mossy Meadow panel with the Stitched So Softly scalloped rectangle die and adhered the stamped panel to the front. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set on a Bumblebee panel in Mossy Meadow and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered it to the stamped panel. I adhered the Bumblebee panels of the Dandy Garden designer series paper to the Mossy Meadow card base on both ends. I adhered the white panel in the middle.
I stamped the open tailed dragonfly from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set in stamped off Bumblebee ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I adhered it to the large section of the card base that will be the inside of the card. I applied Tear & Tape to the left side of the layered stamped panel, being careful so that it didn’t go past the fold. I removed the tape strip covers and adhered it to the panel to the closed card, aligning the pane with the scalloped panel on the inside.
I punched a small dragonfly from Vellum with the Dragonflies punch and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot. I adhered a Bumblebee enamel dot on the dragonfly. I adhered a Mossy Meadow braided trim bow to the label, and my card was done.
The Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden bundle is such a pretty set – I love the wildflowers stamp image – and it goes so beautifully with the Dandy Garden designer series paper. This style of Z-fold card is really easy to make, yet really makes the card extra special – try it!
