Hello, Birch Press friends! Allison here, and today I’m sharing a card featuring some of my favorite products from the latest release.

I started by embossing a navy panel of card stock with the Ringadings 3D embossing folder. I love the texture this embossing folder gives! I then die cut a bunch of kelly green leaves from the Tiny Tuft Flowers and Leaves Contour Layers set. I also cut the same leaves from a darker green card stock. I layered those by glueing only the thinnest part of the leaves together, while also slightly offsetting them. I glued the bottom, darker leaf to the card panel. The top layer lifts up off the card and gives great dimension.

Next, I used white and dark pink card stock to cut the wings from the new Simple Dragonfly Contour Layers set. I am in love with these dragonflies! I cut the bodies from gold metallic card stock. I adhered the layers together, only glueing them in the centers. I glued only the body to the card panel. This allows the wings to lift up off of the card, similar to the leaves.

I added some gems to the dragonflies to give them a bit more detail. I also added some gold gems around the panel. The small, white die-cut embellishments are the centers of the flowers from the Pimpernel Contour Layers die set.

The sentiment is the Hugs Sugar Script Hot Foil Plate. I foiled it with a brassy gold color and then cut it out with the matching die.

Thank you so much for joining us today. I hope this card inspires you and brings a smile to your face!

Wishing you a crafty day,
