Designer's Tip:



  1. Front of the card: Place your card with the fold on top. Cover with Bountiful flowered paper. Lightly sponge the edges with blackberry ink.
  2. Use stencil tape to hold the stencil in place on a 4 1/2"x3 1/2" green paper at a slight angle. Use a sponge to ink the image. Remove the stencil and use the X-acto® pen knife and cutting mat to cut around only the wings of the dragonfly, leaving a 1 1/6" border. Mat on red paper with 1/8" borders, leaving the wings unglued. Lift them up slightly to show the red underneath. Foam tape to the card 3/8" from the top and right edges of the card. Tie a pink metallic bow around the left side of the dragonfly paper.
  3. Stamp a blackberry label on white cardstock, then stamp "Feel Better Soon" in the center of the frame with warm red ink. Cut around the edges leaving a 1/32" border and foam tape and glue to the lower left corner of the card, overlapping the ribbon as shown.
  4. Inside the card: Cover the card with green Bountiful paper with the swirl and flower design in the lower left corner. Stencil a blackberry dragonfly on the right, slightly tilted and stamp "Feel Better Soon" on the upper left.
