Fly Away Birthday Greetings

February 3, 2017

Good Morning!  I have been busily preparing for my club meetings this month and I have a project to share with you today.  It's a different kind of card, but it will still fit in a standard A2 envelope for mailing.  I'm not sure the sparkle shows up enough for you to see it, but it's really got a lot! 






















I know someone would really love getting this for their special day, whatever that represents.  Here are the details


I started with a sheet of Soft Sky cardstock , cut out using the Big Shot and the Mini Treat Bag thinlits. Before I made the bag, I ran the two pieces through the Falling Petals embossing folder.  Just a reminder to always use a very strong glue for items like bags and boxes....I used the Tear and Tape for the bag seams. 


Now for the sparkles.  I used the Swirly Scribbles dies and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the wonderful swirl beneath the dragonfly.  And I used the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper for the bottom layer of the dragonfly.  The black top layer of the dragonfly was altered, as I cut away the tail so more of the glimmer paper would show.  I also added two rhinestone eyes. All this was popped up with dimensionals.  I added a sentiment to the bottom, which could be anything you wanted to say. 


Now for the inside:  I stamped off with Soft Sky Ink and used the leaf stamp from the SU Sheltering Tree set, and used one of the sentiments from Falling for you for the center.  I cut out the short tagged shape for the "handle", scored it in the middle, folded it and stapled it in place.


This would also make a great wedding, anniversary, graduation or birthday card.  You can decide for yourself how very versatile it is.
