Things with Wings

Today's challenge at My Paper Crafting is Things with wings.

To make this card, I used Lyrical Letters and the CCR to design the letters and their shadow layers. I cut the letters then added faux stitching.

For the inside of the card, I used the spinning platform die from Sizzix to make a pop-up mechanism on which to place my dragonfly that was cut using the Art Nouveau cartridge.

The dragonfly was layered onto scalloped ovals, then attached to the pop-up. Unfortunately you can't quite see the effect of the pop-up in the picture. The dragonfly twists back and down when the card closes. The word is cut using the Lyrical Letters and shadow layer in CCR.

Please head over to My Paper Crafting for this week's challenge and see what beautiful designs the rest of the DT has come up with to inspire you!.
