Happy birthday dragonfly with flower white DL card - Day 82 of my 366 day challenge


Happy birthday dragonfly with flower white DL card - 
Day 82 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I am carrying on the "monochrome" theme and have just made this birthday DL card which has turned out better than I thought it would!

Happy birthday dragonfly with flower white DL card
I first of all chose the topper which is a really pretty dragonfly and lotus flower design from Hunkydory and thought that it would fit inside a white DL window aperture card.

I wanted it to have some texture so embossed the front of the card using a scoring board at 1/2" intervals. To make sure the topper was in the right place I closed the card and stuck it to the inside flap through the aperture.

I used Collall All purpose glue as it allows you some time to correct any mistakes!

Once I was happy with where it was, I then glued the panel to the front so that it now just looked like a normal DL card. I had previously cut out the "Waterfall frame" in white and thought it would look like a window so glued it to an piece of card which had the same size aperture as the card, I coloured some parts of it in co-ordinating colours and attached it to the front of the card using Stix2 thin foam pad strips.

I felt that it needed something else, so used the "Happy Birthday" topper (in white with silver foil) and edged it with pink alcohol marker.

For the insert, I used one from Hunkydory and cut it to fit and glued it so that the "join" was hidden.

I am really pleased how this card turned out and you can buy this card on my website here
