Hi, I am sure you too, will be inspired by these sweet dragonflies found in the Enchanted Mum Collection from Heartfelt Creations...scroll down and see how this card is put together.

Heartfelt Creations Products and Products Carried by Heartfelt Creations:

This hinge card measures, 18.7 cm x 13.5 cm.
Note: All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. For all the stamping and cutting, the off white card stock is used unless stated.
For the front and back of the hinge card cut x2 18.7 cm x 13.5 cm, for the hinge cut a strip, 13.5 cm x 3 cm. Adhere together with tape and glue.
Cut matting, 18 cm x 13 cm, adhere to the card base. Find the green colored design paper with the dragonflies in the Enchanted Mums paper collection. Cut this to 17.4 cm x 12.4 cm. Use the prick tool to make wholes 5mm from the edges for the needlework. Backstitch this with the gold thread and needle. Adhere this to the card base with the Double Dots. 

Take the Cut Mat Create die, 3.75 " x 5.75 " and 2.75 " x 3.75 ". Place the dies on the card stock so you get a die cut hole in the center, 3.9 cm from the bottom edge. Cut x 5. Keep one of the die cut centers for the stamping, the rest keep for another project. Stamp the sentiment " You Inspire Me " under the whole on one of the die cuts. Adhere the entire die cut layers together with wet glue so you can get the edges straight to make a chipboard. 

Apply the embossing powder to the inside edge. Using the stamp positioner, the Enchanted Mum Cluster stamp set, stamp on to the kept card stock die cut center. For the 2nd image, you need to mask the Dragonfly before stamping. Taking another piece of cardstock, stamp the Dragonfly only, color and fussy cut the image. 

Take now the Enchanted Dragonflies stamp and die sets, stamp, color and die cut the two Dragonflies. Center and adhere the chipboard to the card base. Adhere the stamped card stock in the chipboard frame. Shape and adhere the Dragonfly with Double Dots to the Dragonfly image. 

Adhere with glue, the two Dragonflies to the left of the sentiment. To bring some bling onto the card, you could add stickles to the wing tips.
