You are here Home / Global Design Project #075 Theme Challenge
Spring is just around the corner in Michigan, so this week’s Global Design Project theme challenge of “things that fly” was a great one to participate in! I decided to play around with the Dragonfly Dreams set, mostly because I love dragonflies and my youngest child gave me the inspiration for this card. He loves to look at things under his kid magnifying glass! I am amazed at the things that he views-sometimes you really need to look closely at something to see the beauty. Thus, my inspiration for this card!
The Detailed Dragonfly thinlits have 2 sizes of the lacy dragonfly-small and large. To make this card, I cut out both sizes in Basic Black, then trimmed them in half. I glued the large wing onto a 2 1/2 inch circle of Whisper White paper so I could put the colored bits down. Use the large dragonfly and precision base plate to cut out the little pieces-I used Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight paper. Use tweezers to place the colored bits where they are in the picture. Then, cut out a 2 1/2 inch circle of the window sheet paper (the clear stuff)-I used my Layering Circle Framelits dies. I also used these dies to cut out 2 circles of the silver foil sheet; just cut out a 2 1/2 inch circle, then use the next size down to make a ring. Put the circles together by using the foam adhesive strips between the window sheet and the dragonfly wing, then use the fine tip glue pen to put the silver foil ring on top.
I stamped using Bermuda Bay and a sentiment from All things Thanks stamp set. I embossed the 5 x 3 x 3/4″ Whisper White with the Softly Falling embossing folder, and cut out a “handle” for the magnifying glass with Basic Black cardstock. To assemble, put down the big dragonfly “glass” piece, then attach the smaller black dragonfly wing so it looks like its outside of the glass. Glue down the handle.
I had fun making this card and my kids love it! To check out all of the cards in this challenge, go to the Global Design Project here!
