Dragonfly Card and Treat Holder

The following cards are all made using the same method, so I will post the instructions just one time.

Card is made by taking a piece of card stock 5.5” x 8.5” and scoring the long way at 4.25”.  Using the large floral die from the So Detailed Thinlits Dies set, die cut your choice of Designer Series Paper using the Big Shot.  Position the straight edge near the folded edge, and adhere.  (I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen for this step).  Take the larger flower stamp from the So in Love stamp set and stamp on scrap of Whisper White card stock in choice of color.  Stamp sentiment over the top in darker coordinating color.  Cut out with the appropriate size Stitched Shapes Circle Die using the Big Shot.  Cut a larger scalloped shape from choice of coordinating solid color card stock using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies set and the Big Shot.  Stack elements on Lacy Doily and adhere to card.  Using the dragonfly die from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies set, cut out using Gold Foil or Glimmer Paper, using the Big Shot.  Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Treat Holder is made by taking a piece of card stock and cutting it 5.5” by 7”.  Score at 3.25” and 3.75” along the long side.  Fold along score lines and line up the tops.  Use 1/8” hole punch to punch 2 holes near the top for closing with ribbon.   Round corners with Project Life Corner Rounder.  Using the large floral die from the So Detailed Thinlits, die cut your choice of Designer Series Paper.  Line up straight edge with fold line on front, and adhere to card stock holder.  (I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen for this).  Take 14” length of ribbon and feed through holes at top of holder and tie in bow.  Stamp ‘Enjoy’ in choice of color ink, then with ‘frame’ stamp.  Cut out with paper snips.  Punch hole in top with 1/16” hole punch.  Thread piece of silver cording trim through or use narrow ribbon or Metallic Thread.  Tie around ribbon bow.
