Hidden gem

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by. The card I'm sharing with you today is one of the first that I've created this year. The toppers and papers are from a Hunkydory Crafts Club member's gift from late last year. I love the kit and the number of cards that can be created from it is amazing. I'll share more with you soon.

The style of the card is new-to-me and I want to thank Christina at Card Making Magic for teaching me and others, so much. Christina has a lot of tutorials on the website and on her blog, Flowers Ribbons and Pearls. This particular card is a Crossover Card and is really easy to create.

After creating the base card following the tutorial, making mine 5 and 3/4 inches square, I cut a 5.5" square from the pink swirly paper and then cut this on the diagonal adding it to the card using double sided tape. The circle topper has foam dimensionals on one side to raise it. The flowers have also been added using dimensionals. The dragonfly just has a dab of wet glue on the head and the tail and wings have been gently bent upward to give some shape and the illusion of flight.

For the inside of the card, I cut another square of the paper, this time to a 5 and 5/8" square, which leaves a small border around the edge. The topper has been added using a wet glue.

Have a great weekend everyone.
