Make a Wish

Good morning! We got home last night from a 3-day-weekend vacation where kind of everything went wrong, but we were still glad to get away and spend time together as a family. It was a big bummer, though, when we were two hours from home and I realized I’d left my phone at a gas station where we used the bathroom. ARRRRRRGH. So that was a three hour detour. Thankfully Google, which I usually think is creepy because it knows way too much about me, was able to tell me exactly where my phone was. Google is the best.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous with Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits , glossy cardstock, Hexagons Dynamic embossing folder

Anyway, the card I’m showing you today is one of my Display Stamper projects from OnStage in Shreveport. I made this card to showcase the new In Color Fresh Fig, glossy cardstock, the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, and the Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

My card base is Thick Whisper White. The next layer is Pool Party cardstock. I embossed it with the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder, then sponged Pool Party ink on the cardstock in various spots for some more texture. I wrapped the ribbon around that layer (taped down with Tear & Tape), then glued the Pool Party piece down.

For the focal point, the bottom layer is Fresh Fig cardstock, cut with the Layering Circles framelits. On top of that is Glossy White Cardstock cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits. I used the Striped Wipe technique to make my striped piece. I love how it turned out — kind of looks like a planet? The colors I used were Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, and So Saffron. I glued the two layers together and popped them up on Dimensionals. I cut the baby dragonflies from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits. I colored them ombre using an Aqua Painter and Pool Party ink. Those are on Dimensionals (but now I would use Mini Dimensionals).

The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous, stamped in Fresh Fig. I finished the card off with rhinestones.

I hope you like my card today. Come back tomorrow for more!
