I created this simple thank you card using the soon to be retired Dandy Garden DSP & retired Silver Foil paper. The dragonfly was punched out using the Dragonfly Punch & coordinating Dandy Garden DSP. It was adhered to a circle die cut from the retired Stitched Shapes circle. I added a ladybug trinket currently on sale & retiring soon! The sentiment was inked in Misty Moonlight.
When it’s your mom’s birthday, you need to go over the top. This card is simply stunning in person! There are many layers to this card but overall it was fairly simple to make. I CASEd this from Pinterest but it was made with much love.

This stepped up stunning card was actually quite simple to assemble. I started by dry embossing Misty Moonlight cardstock using the amazing Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder (EF). I sponged Whisper White ink over the top to help the trees “pop”. I cut a 3 x 3 ¾ piece of the Feels Like Frost DSP (150444). On top of that, I embossed a 3 ½ x 2 ½ piece of Silver Foil Sheet (132178) again using the Evergreen Forest 3D EF. I popped the silver piece using dimensionals. Behind the silver piece I die cut some of the retired mercury acetate using the Beautiful Bough dies (150661). The sentiment is from the Merry Moose stamp set (150494) inked in Misty Moonlight then die cut using one of the dies from Tasteful Labels (152886).
I started by using Night of Navy as the card base. I layered it with Silver Foil Sheet (132178) & Feels Like Frost DSP (150444). The “joy” was die cut using the Joy dies (153530). I stamped the “to the world” from the coordinating Peace & Joy stamp set (153430) using Night of Navy ink then fussy cut the sentiment. I popped the “joy” up on dimensionals. I added a little bling using Snowflake Sequins (150443).
