Winged Happiness with A2Z Scrapbooking

Hello Friends - I am here with another quick and simple card. For today's card I used the Hero Arts Winged Friends Digital Download DK033  - from A2Z Scrapbooking shop. This digital download has both Dragonflies and Butterflies. It's simply beautiful and so easy to work with.

I kept my card simple - I printed out the same dragonfly twice - altering only the size on one of the dragonfly so I ended up with a larger and small version.


I started by printing out my Dragonflies from the  Hero Arts Winged Friends Digital Download DK033  I then colored them with my Spectrum Nior Markers. I then added a few dots down the center of the dragonflies; as well as filled in the eyes with a Gelly Roll pen in Silver. Add bit of Zig Wink of Stella in clear trimmed them out and set them aside.

Next I cut a piece cream cardstock to 4"x 51/4'. I then did some die cutting  - using a scalloped boarder die to cut one side of the cream cardstock. I also used a larger version of that scalloped boarder die on the Rinea Foil paper in Turquoise Glossy. I also cut the word Happy five times - 4 from black cardstock and 1 from Rinea Foil paper in Jade Starstruck. Finally, 1 small stitched rectangle.

Now, to create the card - I started by stacking the die cut Happy word gluing between layers. Set it aside with a heavy acrylic block on top. Next,  I layered the cream cardstock on top of the strip of turquoise Rinea Foil paper. I then layered that onto my black card base. Next, I added the dragonflies making sure to angle them. Using the sentiment from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut DC150 set I stamped it on the small rectangle with black ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then adhered the Happy die cut word to the top of the card, next I put some foam adhesive on the back of the stamped sentiment and place it over the happy die cut. To finish up the card I add a few tiny confetti dots.

So, stop on over to the shop and pick up this fun digital download - along with any other of the fabulous items in the store - I can't wait to see what you create with it.

Lovely card Annie. I love how you coloured your dragon flies. The little dots on their bodies add just the perfect finishing touch. Love it.
