Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card. CASE the Catalogue. Stamping with Friends Blog Hop. October 2021

 Good Evening Everyone,

I'm taking part in the Stamping with Friends blog hop and we all are CASEing the Catalogue.

CASEing is interpreted in a few different ways, but the main ways are Copy And Share Everywhere or Copy And Selectively Edit. Depending on your mojo and how your want to you can do it whichever you prefer, but it is really important that whoever you CASE is given credit for the original design or Idea.

Here's My version....

The Card I decided to CASE uses In the Wild suite. I chose to switch up the design slightly along with the colours. I used the same DSP as the catalogue but pulled out different colours from it to create a slightly different colour combo, based on the Colours that appear within the In the Wild DSP. I also didn't have the same embossing folder.

This is the card from pg 23 of the Annual Catalogue, which is show with the Dragonfly Garden Bundle.


Cajun Craze Card Stock 

1pc- 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Basic White Cardstock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 2 3/4" x 5"


In the Wild DSP

1pc - 5 /8" x 5 5/8"

1pc - 3 1/4" x 5"


Take the larger piece of Cajun Craze card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. 

Ink up the Dragonfly stamp in Merry Merlot and stamp a small portion of in into the lower right hand corner of the largest Basic White piece and add the thin 5/8" strip of DSP below to run flush with the bottom edge. Add this to the inside of the card.

Run the remaining piece of Cajun Craze through your Cut & Emboss machine in the Painted Texture embossing folder and add to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink into the bottom right hand corner of the remaining piece of Basic White - layer this onto the DSP and then add this to the card front at an angle.

On scraps of Basic White stamp out three dragonflies - one in each of the following - Crushed Curry, Merry Merlot & Cajun Craze, then cut out using the Dragonfly Punch.

Add these to the card front using dimensionals.

Finally add a few rhinestones.
