Dragonfly Garden Naturally Gilded Gold Card

Friends, have you checked out the new Online Exclusive products that went live March 1st? Last week's Facebook Live featured the beautiful new Hello, Irresistible Suite. If you missed the demo and blog post, click here.

Today's card features another brand new product - the gorgeous new Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP. I've paired it with the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, from our Annual Catalogue. Something old and something new!

'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post. 

To make this card, I started by die-cutting my label from Very Vanilla Cardstock, using the Waves Dies. This label is a favourite of mine, for the ability to thread ribbon through it. 

Next, I stamped and embossed. I first used my Embossing Buddy to remove any humidity from the cardstock I'd be stamping on. Using VersaMark Ink, I stamped my sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set onto the label. (Ce jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français.) Then I stamped the floral image onto a 2" x 5" strip of Very Vanilla Cardstock. 

To emboss, I shook Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders over the images, then tapped off the excess and returned it to the jar. I used my Heat Tool to emboss both images. (If you've never used this tool before, it is much like using a hairdryer.) Then I trimmed the edges of the floral image to turn it into a 1 1/2" x 5" rectangle. 

Here's a look at the stamps in the Dragonfly Garden set:

To assemble the card, I positioned the floral image and two 1" x 5" strips of the Gold Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP on a 4" x 5 1/4" Gold Foil Sheets panel. I used Grid Paper to help me centre the floral image, then adhered it with Stampin' Seal. I also adhered the Naturally Gilded strips with Stampin' Seal. Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP comes in patterns of Copper, Gold & Silver:


I next fed Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon through the label and attached the ribbon to the back of the Gold Foil panel with Mini Glue Dots. I added Stampin' Dimensionals behind the label to pop it up, then tied and attached a bow using Mini Glue Dots. My final step was adding the completed panel to a 4 1/4" x 11" Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
