Around The World On Wednesday December Blog Hop Something New Something Old

It's time to hop along with the Around The World On Wednesday December Blog Hop as we explore the theme - Something New, Something Old. You will be visiting with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their creative ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
For my card design, I chose to use the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog as my something new and I paired it with the retiring Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog as my something old. While I am excited about this wonderful new bundle all its amazing possibilities, I am also sad to say goodbye to the beautiful designs of this designer series paper. I felt like they combined beautifully to create this elegant clean and simple Thank You card.

This clean and simple card design is easy to assemble and great for creating multiples to have on hand in your card stash. I attached the designer series paper layer to the card base with Stampin' Seal adhesive. I stamped the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set onto the Very Vanilla label using Early Espresso Classic ink and stamped the floral image twice using Soft Sea Foam Classic ink to create a soft design. I added the sentiment label to the Early Espresso label with Stampin' Seal Adhesive and then added the label to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Using the new Dragonflies Punch, I punched out one of the small dragonflies from Copper Foil and attached it to the sentiment label with a Mini Glue Dot. I embellished the dragonfly with three small Basic Rhinestones and the sentiment label with two large Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. I love the simple elegance of this card design and the beautiful foil detail of this designer series paper is a great way to create a simply Wow card without the stress.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to explore combining old and new products to create your own amazing projects and spark your creativity.
