Been Dragon My Feet (new die)

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have a new release of dies in our online store. If you haven't seen the Magical Fantasy release yet, you have to drop by the store and check it out. These new dies are all so cute and whimsical. There are 27 new designs and I am in love with everyone of them.

A friend asked me if I could make a card that would say "sorry" for something she didn't get done as promised. Well, I just happen to have one of those "punny" sentiments mentioning a dragon and our new sweet dragon die. So, today I am featuring the new Magic Dragon die.  Let's get started on some details of how I created this card.

Step 1: I decided to sponge a cloud and grassy slopes on the background with distress inks. I used a stencil for both. On the clouds I used tumbled glass distress ink and on the hilly slopes I used mowed lawn distress inks.

Sponged Image Panel: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Next, I cut the dragon from 2 shades of green and mango cardstocks.
I wanted my sentiment on the top right of the image panel. I used a cucumber ink and with the help of my MISTI it stamped perfectly.

Step 2: Now that everything is sponged, cut and stamped, I am ready to start card assembly. I decided to add some cucumber thick bakers twine to the image panel. Just for a little added interest.
To attach my cute little dragon I used dimensional adhesive. I wanted him lifted off the image panel a bit and have his feet just touching the grassy slope.
To finish off my card I added a small twine bow with a epoxy heart and scattered a few enamel dots. The epoxy heart is clear and didn't show up very well in the photo. But irl you can see it so I will leave it on the card. Attached the image panel to the cucumber card base with double sided tape.
I hope I have given you an of a way to use this magic dragon die. We have been showing samples of these new dies all week so if you haven't seen them look back on the blog. We are also on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

See you next Saturday!
