Dragonfly Border Stamp with Washi Tape---Lost Coast Designs

Hi Dreamers!
Happy Friday!   I hope you have some fun stuff planned for the weekend.  I just received a card order from my friend and neighbor for thirteen cards!  Yipee! I know what I will be doing this weekend!  I mowed the grass today.  And pulled all the weeds out of the pavement cracks.  How the heck do they grow there!!!  If I wanted something to grow there, it surely  wouldn't.  Oh well, that is done.  I still have to water all my neighbors plants in the morning.  And, I have to water mine too.  

And, now on to the card for today.  As you know, I have been making a few cards with Lost Coast Designs Border stamps and washi tape.  This is the third and final card in the series.  ***See the other cards in the series here and here.

Special Note: Lost Coast Designs' new challenge is now open.  The current theme is Words and/or Letters.  

Click over and check it out.....there are prizes...... I will be posting my card with Words later in the month.

For today's fun yet elegant card, I used a silver and gray color scheme.  Love how those dragonflies dance across the card!

Materials List:
Stamp: Dragonfly Border from Lost Coast Designs
Ink: Gray Flannel- Memento
CS: White and gray
Washi Tape- American Crafts 


  • Make an A2 sized card from dark gray CS
  • On a piece of white CS, stamp the Dragonfly border with Gray Flannel ink at the top and bottom
  • Add three rows of Washi tape

  • Add the stamped piece to the card front
  • Tie ribbon around the bottom edge of the of the card.  I added a bit of glue on each edge and under the bow to help the ribbon stay in place
  • Decorate the inside by stamping  the border stamp at the bottom edge

A pretty card that I can use for any occasion.  I have plenty of room on the inside to add a sentiment or write a note.  I think I could use this for an anniversary card because of the colors.....  What do you think??
