Dragonfly Dreams, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card

 Today I have fun playing with the "Vellum View" technique.  You can see another card I had made using that technique here.  

This is a very fun and quick card to make.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of the thicker vellum, card stock vellum.  I set the piece aside.

I cut a 6" x 4" piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock and I folded it in half.  It now measures 3" x 4".  I taped it to the inside of the card.

I cut a 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Whisper White card stock and I stamped the flower from the "Abstract Impressions" set using Gorgeous Grape ink.  I taped that piece on top of the Gorgeous Grape piece that's taped inside the card.

The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set.  I stamped them on top of the vellum using black StazOn ink. This set is retired but I liked the font used here.  

I die cut a dragonfly from the "Dragonfly Dreams" set.  I set the dragonfly in place using Dimensionals.  I colored over the entire dragonfly with the Wink of Stella pen. I wanted it to have some shimmer.

I added a 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape piece and the card was done.

I liked making this card. It was super quick and simple to do.  The stamping of the flowers took the most time and those were pretty quick to stamp too.  I had no whining or complaining as I made this card!!! LOL

In a couple more days my new stuff will be here and I won't have to work so hard to use what I have that is current.  So sad, isn't it?  I should be using what I have. 

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
