A Dragonfly Birthday Card

My Colors Card Stock in Cloak GreyHeidi Swapp Minc Foil in Holographic and Teal
Tombow Foam Tape
Heat Embossing Tool

1)  Fold your base 5 ½” by 8 ½ ” card stock, creating a top fold card.
2)  Either soap the back of all three stencils or cover them with Versamark.  You need to create a light film across the back that makes the stencils easy to remove from the adhesive on the mounting paper.
3)  Cut the mounting paper to match the sizes of each of the stencils.
4)  Remove one side of the coverings on the double sided mounting paper and place the stencils, soap or Versamark side down, on the paper.
5)  For the Happy Birthday and the Dragonfly stencils, place the Minc foil, dull side down, over the open places on the stencils and rub lightly.
6)  Use the embossing tool to rub over the top of the foil, pressing it down into the wells of the stencils.
7)  Remove the foil, and rub a little of the Micro Black Glitter over the foiled sections.
8)  Use the stencil brush to brush off the excess glitter.  Do this thoroughly.
9)  Place the foiled projects upside down on a flat surface and carefully peel the mounting paper off of the stencil.
10)  Cover the newly revealed sticky paper with Crystal Multi Glitter.
11)  Push the Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel into the wells on the Mosaic Swirls Stencil.  Do not brush off the excess.
12)  Carefully place the project upside down on a flat surface and remove the double sided mounting paper.
13)  Use the heat gun to emboss the Aqua Enamel.
14)  After the embossing has cooled, pour the Detail Black Embossing Powder over the exposed sticky surfaces.
15)  Heat Emboss
16)  Assemble the card, using the Tombow Tape to raise the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my card.
