Dragonfly Dreams, May 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Friendship Card

I had some leftover decorative paper from the "Falling in Love" Decorative Series Paper (DSP) pack.  I just ordered my new papers and stamp sets today, so it will be about 10 days before I get my new stuff!! So in the meantime I will be playing with what I have that is current but I may add a piece of retired DSP every now and then.  

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Pool Party cardstock.  On top of that is the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP.  On top of that is a half circle from the May 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I taped it in place on the left side.  I don't know why I had to use it, but I did like it on this DSP.  

Next I took some gold thread and wound it around my fingers, holding on to the cut end with my thumb and forefinger.  When I cut it, I added tat end to my thumb and forefinger and taped the strands together there with 2 glue dots. They threads were sandwiched between the glue dots.  Before I taped the strands together, I did adjust them so they are not all the same length.

Then I die cut the dragonfly using Soft Suede cardstock.  I set it in place with small pieces of Dimensionals.  I added pearls down the back of the dragonfly.

I stamped the words using Soft Suede ink and the card was finished.  I was thrilled at how quickly the card went together.  I like how it turned out!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
