Hello Stampers! Welcome to a new week. I just had a fantastic time meeting with fellow Stampin’ Up! Demos at our Local On Stage here in San Diego. We started on Friday with Peggy Noe, Linda Foster and I hosting a pre-On Stage Make & Take for the demos in the Mary Fish Pals. We had 20 wonderful ladies attend to make three cards and have some visiting time. Then we all went to a great Mexican restaurant for dinner together. What a wonderful group – a good time was had by all!
This is the card I presented.
See how you get a cool shadow when the card is opened.
This shot really shows the shadow.
This is a better look at how you create the empty space for the shadow box.

Adhere the group of dragonflys OVER the open oval space (when card is open the dragonflies will make a shadow)
Open ½” flap next to cut out of oval side, remove Tear & Tape, close front over it and adhere
I was inspired and got the folding directions from Dawn Griffith. Check out her video for details on assembly.
This card was a big hit at our Make & Take and I’ll show you another one using different Thinlits on Friday.
It’s difficult to see but both the oval and the dragonfly are popped up with Dimensionals.
