Dragonfly Garden – Follow Your Dreams

I am back with another quick clean and simple card.

I chose to use the colors suggested by AAA Cards (#216) and the theme suggested by Cupcake Inspiration (#545)

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The sentiment, Follow your dreams, from the Through it Together stamp set was stamped directly to the card front with Pool Party ink.
  • Grounding Shape – Hexagon: (2¼” x 2”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Blotch image from the Uniquely Artistic stamp set was stamped with Pool Party ink on one side and stamped-off (2nd Generation) on the other side.
    • I chose the stamped-off coloring because I liked the lighter tone as the background.
    • The Hexagon Grounding Shape was die-cut with the (1¾” x 1⅝”) Hexagon die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies set.
  • Focal Image – Dragonfly: (2½” x 2”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Dragonfly image, from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set was stamped with Smoky Slate ink.
    • The Dragonfly was colored with Stampin’ Blends: Dark Pool Party, Light Fresh Freesia, Light So Saffron and retired Dark Pink Pirouette.
    • Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig Positioning Tool, the Dragonfly was inked with Versamark ink and stamped over the original image and heat-set with Silver Embossing Powder.
    • The Dragonfly was then punched out with the coordinating Dragonflies Punch.
    • I decided to fussy-cut the white edging from the Dragonfly with Paper Snips.

Keeping the card very clean, I adhered the background Hexagon in place on the card front and popped up the Dragonfly with Mini Dimensionals.

A pretty little graduation card.
