Ethereal Dragonfly on a Window Box


I had been working on this today and when I went to add my Watermark…it wouldn’t work! So it was touch and go to get it linked up to the #GDP069 but I made it.

The Global Design Project #GDP069 this week was a Color Challenge of Delightful Dijon, Silver and a Free Choice.  For my free choice color I picked Night of Navy. I love this color against the Delightful Dijon and of course, with the little addition of a silver dragon fly to the top with accessories of Silver Metallic Thread underneath, a little Silver Foil tag plus Silver 1/8″ ribbon.  What’s inside…something delicious will go in there and will definitely be chocolate.

I used the gorgeous Window Box Thinlits Dies to make the box and I die cut the top (1) and all of the sides with dies (not shown). I then backed them with Delightful Dijon Cardstock. I cut two strips 5-1/2″ x 1-1/2″, scored these at 1-3/4″ and 3-5/8″, attached with a little Fast Fuse. I die cut the top piece only out of Delightful Dijon (2) and then trimmed off the tags (3).  Attach this piece to the top and you’ve got the gorgeous backing that peeks through the intricate die cuts (4). I love this set so much!

(1) Die cut the Night of Navy top piece.




You can see in these photos where I attached the Tear and Tape. DON’T put it on the top like I did because you don’t need it there and I took it off. Start assembling the sides first, then the bottom and the top will just tuck in.











I used my Embossing Buddy on a window sheet then stamped the dragonfly using VersaMark and dipped it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (7). I cut the embossed dragonfly out with the matching die cut. I cut the intricate dragonfly out of a Silver Foil Sheet to use on the top. I LOVE the look (9). I placed a little Silver Metallic Thread on top of the box, then punched and attached three 3/4″ circles with Dimensionals in-between each one. I attached the dragonfly together with a piece of Foam Adhesive Strip.













Die cut the little tag out of Silver Foil Sheet scrap, mask the sentiment from DragonFly Dreams and use the word Enjoy and stamp using Stazon Ink. Clean it straight afterward, I cleaned mine with a baby wipe. Punch a hole in the top and the front of the window box, thread a long piece of 1/8″ Silver Ribbon, attach the tag and tie a bow. Voila!
