Messing with Masks - part 2

This card continues the masks theme. Although my terrible photography does not show it, the glittered background is made using the Dragonfly mask.

To make, take your card blank and matt and layer two coordinating sheets of patterned paper.

Cut a double sided adhesive sheet to fit 6x6 inches and peel off the cover from one side.
Lay your mask over the sheet and pour over the green glitter. Tap off the excess.
Remove the mask from the sheet to reveal the dragonflies.

Top tip - rub some soap on the back of your mask before you lay it on the adhesive sheet to stop it sticking permanently.

Pour over the pink glitter to fill in the dragonflies and tap off the excess. Matt onto some pink patterned card.

Stamp your sentiment (from the Just Rite Forever Friends set)

and die cut it with the coordinating Spellbinders Ribbon Tag

 While the card is still in the die, blend some ink around the edges. Thread through the plum ribbon

Die cut one of the Spellbinders Labels Fourteen

from patterned paper. On pink patterned paper, draw around the outside edge of your die. Cut out by hand to create a "faux nestie".

Matt and layer onto your glittered back ground using the Cosmic Shimmer clear glue to give a strong hold.
Layer your sentiment and ribbon on top, wrapping the ribbon behind your glittered background.
Die cut some leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage set

 and use to embellish the sentiment with the Crimson Cloud paper roses.

Die cut two Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares

from green cardstock. Cut each square into four and tape behind your glittered topper to create an ornate border.

Matt and layer onto your card using foam pads to give dimension.

  1. I love this, yummy textures and colours and I love dragonflies.

  2. Just had another look at one of my magazines and I've seen this card here. Can quite clearly see the dragonflies. Beautiful.
