Mount the grouping of small dragonflies image from the Dragonfly Garden Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Soft Succulent Ink Pad. Stamp it on the left side of the horizontal Soft Succulent card front in the center. Let some of the image go off the left side. Re-ink the stamp and stamp it again on the right side of the horizontal Soft Succulent card front in the center. Let some of the image go off the right side.
Adhere the piece of Texture Chic Specialty Designer Paper to the center of the 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" Pool Party rectangle and then to the front of the stamped, horizontal Soft Succulent card in the center.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Dragonfly Garden Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Evening Evergreen Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the remaining, small, horizontal Pool Party rectangle leaving room to cut it out.
Pick out the die that is 2-3/8" x 3-3/8" from the Layering Diorama Dies. Put it on top of the sentiment stamped Pool Party rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is horizontal and the sentiment is in the lower right corner and is straight. Run through the machine.
Adhere the sentiment Pool Party cut out to the center of the designer paper on the card front.
Mount the large dragonfly image of choice from the Dragonfly Garden Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Evening Evergreen Ink Pad. Stamp it on one end of the horizontal Soft Succulent strip leaving room to punch it out.
Unlock the Dragonflies Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped large dragonfly into the punch and get it centered in the large dragonfly punching area. Punch.
Use the Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to add shimmer to the wings of the dragonfly punch out.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the shimmered dragonfly punch out to the front of the card as shown so it overlaps the upper left side of the Pool Party sentiment cut out.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 2 large and 1 small Pool Party gems from a sheet of Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the front of the card as shown so they are scattered around the dragonfly punch out and sentiment on the Pool Party cut out.
