I’m in Hartford, CT!…arrived yesterday afternoon with my friend, Mary. And we are super excited for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event that kicks off tonight for a few of us and carries on into tomorrow for everyone. Guess what!?!?! We get to see, touch and smell the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog!! (Can you tell I’m excited?)
Here is a photo of Mary and I yesterday evening in front of the Dunkin’ Donuts Park (a baseball stadium) before having a fabulous dinner at the Trumbull Kitchen.
The weather is brisk here just as it is back home in Minnesota, but I have Spring on my mind with all the new products we’ll get to see soon.
So today I am super happy to share how to make this super pretty dragonfly closure card using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, the Better Together Stamp Set, and the Petal Garden Designer Paper.
I wanted to share this card with my Facebook friends too, so I recorded this Facebook Live how-to video this past Wednesday and then uploaded it to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video, check out the measurements below so that you can recreate this amazing card, and then let me know if you have any questions. If you ARE on Facebook, I invite you to “like” then “follow” my page so you can get updates when I share and when I go live every Wednesday afternoon at 2 PM Central Time.
Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate this pretty card.
- Whisper White Thick cardstock:
- 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored and folded in half at 4-1/4”
- Basic Black cardstock:
- scrap for die-cutting dragonfly
- Vellum cardstock:
- scraps for die-cutting dragonfly & punching leaves
- Petal Garden (or Whole Lot of Lovely) designer paper”

Products: See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Here are a few more close-up photos of all the card variations I shared in the video.
I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today. Thanks for stopping by! I’ll share more photos from OnStage soon. But the fun is about to begin, and I’ll be lucky if I get enough sleep. LOL
