Dragonfly Garden Good Things Z-Fold Card

Hi Stamping Friends!
My LIVE Class today featured 5 fun-fold cards all created with the Dragonfly Garden Bundle! I wasn't a big fan of the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper that came with the suite, so I paired the bundle with the gorgeous Peony Garden DSP instead. I love how they turned out! 
This is a perfect example of why it's so nice to be able to see samples of the papers up close and personal before buying full-size packs! Sometimes, you don't realize how much you LOVE the papers until they are in your hands. (Or, sometimes, how little you like the papers.)  My Paper Share is a great way to get a taste of the patterns without a big investment. It's perfect for helping you make purchasing decisions!

Introducing The 2021 Annual Catalog Paper Share!

Enjoy 112 NEW Papers, Plus 7 Bonus Pieces, For Only $42!

I'm so excited to once again offer a fun & affordable way for you to be able to try ALL of the awesome Designer Series Papers** from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog! 

I Want It All, Right Now!  If you're like me, you can't wait to get your hands on every style of DSP to see it in person and start using it on your projects!  But, purchasing full packs of all the paper styles is much too costly for one person, especially when you have lots of other new stamps and accessories on your wishlist!  Right?!

Too Cool Paper Share To The Rescue!  I'm organizing a 2021 Annual Catalog Paper Share, so that groups of eight people can split the cost and enjoy the full selection of Designer Series Paper patterns right away, at a price that is very affordable! 

Variety & Value!  If you were to purchase each DSP pack yourself, it would cost more than $288, plus tax! With the 2021 Annual Catalog Paper Share, you'll get all varieties to create with right away, at a fraction of the price, then you can order more of the styles you like most later on!

Please Be Aware…Backorders Are Possible!  Due to ongoing global shipping delays, backorders are always a possibility. If ANY of the papers are on backorder, I will hold the entire Paper Share until ALL papers are available. If it is anticipated to be an extended backorder wait, I may offer additional options, such as an optional additional shipping fee to ship a partial share, or refunding the cost of the papers that are unavailable. I will do my best to get the papers to you in a timely manner!  TIP: If you reserve your order by May 3, you'll have the best shot at avoiding any backorder issues!

**In Color 6" x 6" DSP Not Included—I do not include the new In Color Designer Series Paper Pack in this share, since I offer with my In Color Club.

Dragonfly Garden Good Things Z-Fold Card
There is just something a little magical about dragonflies! I just love the sweet Dragonfly Garden stamp set and coordinating Dragonflies Punch for making lovely "thinking of you" cards! You'll definitely need to have your Wink of Stella shimmer handy for creating iridescent wings!
Dragonfly garden z-fold - peony 1
Z-Fold Basics—The card base begins with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Gray Granite cardstock, scored at the 2-1/8" and 4-1/4" marks. Fold the card in half and then back to create the "Z" fold. I adhered a 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" piece of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to the front panel. If you love that paper as much as I do, be sure to get it before it retires on May 3!

Dandy Dragonflies—I stamped a Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Gray Granite ink onto the bottom right corner of a 3" x 4" piece of Basic White. Next, I stamped the large dragonfly with the "outline" style body in Gray Granite Ink twice onto the sentiment layer. I added the small dragonflies image around the blank spaces of the layer with stamped-off Gray Granite ink, then adhered the layer onto a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Petal Pink cardstock. It's popped up with Dimensionals onto the front panel. I stamped the large dragonfly again in Gray Granite ink, this time onto scrap Basic White, then added the wing fill image on both sides with stamped-off Petal Pink ink. I punched it out with the Dragonflies Punch and popped it up, too.
Finishing Touches—I brushed on some shimmery Wink of Stella on the spotlighted dragonfly only, then floated some Elegant Faceted Gems around the scene.

Inside The Card—I stamped the small dragonflies image on the 3" x 4" Basic White inside piece, too. I love how the message area is hidden behind the front panel. Too Cool!

Two Cool—My second version begins with a Calypso Coral Z-Fold card base and a coordinating pattern from the Dandy Garden DSP on the front panel. The Dandy Garden DSP is available thru June 30, or while supplies last, then it will retire.

Dandy Dragonflies—Everything else from the card is identical to the first card, but doesn't it look so different with just a change in background?
