For day 2 of Craftin Desert Divas we are giving you sneak peek at the Dragon Tales stamp set! These guys were just too cute that I had to use all of them onto one card!
To create this layered fold up card I used lots of CDD amazing product:
- Dragon Tales stamp set (available 12/10)
- All Together Sentiments (available 12/10
- fall border dies for the hills, houses, & trees
- puffy cloud die
- hillside scene stencil for the inked clouds
- fancy frames die for the stitched scallop
- oxide inks: broken china, peeled paint, bundled sage, & gathered twigs
- versafine black ink
So I took on a little bit with this card in my want of using all these cuties! To create the base I trimmed a card to 5 1/2 x 11 to make it an even square and scored down the middle. I trimmed some watercolor paper and inked with the cloud stencil and broken china and adhered to the back of the inside of the card. Next, I die cut the trees, houses, and hills in varying lengths and inked with the peeled paint, bundled sage, and gathered twigs. On the bottom of each of these layers I scored 1/2″ to adhere to the card base. I then dipped my paint brush in white paint and water and splattered the hills.
Now the assembly, I trimmed some scrap thick cardstock to 3 x 1 1/2 and scored at 1/2″ twice and folded to make a spacer to go in between the layers. I first glued the trees and the spacer behind, then the houses, and the hills. On the hills, I used pop dots to just add a little depth.
For the adorable characters, I stamped and colored with copic markers. I added them with either glue or pop dots to add even more depth. For the bottom I die cut the stitched scalloped frame and stamped the two sentiments from the new All Together Sentiments set. This font is perfect for fairy tales! Next, I added the cute sleeping dragon and let this dry before attempting to close! (Lesson learned!)
It took a bit of time to create but this is one fabulous card for one special person!
Keep following us for two more days as we share some more of our December release with you! You can see it all here.
All the release will be available on Monday 12/10!
