When you move the sides in & out the DragonFly inside

is hovering over the flowers.

 

Supplies needed

2 @ 10" x 6" solid color cardstock for base 

  (I used CTMH Blue Belle)

2 @ 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" pattern cardstock (I used CTMH Lovely)

4 @ 5 3/4" x 3/4"" cardstock for panels layer 1

die to cut out center front (in my case CTMH Stitched Bracket)

stamp for images & sentiment 

 (I used Cute As A Bug stamp/die - DragonFly, sentiment)

ink for stamped images & sentiment 

  (I used VersaFine Onyx Black)

optional - markers to color images

adhesive, optional - foam adhesive

acetate 3/4" x 3 1/2" (trimmed after attached) for strip to 

  put floating image on (in my case the DragonFly)

optional - die for sentiment tag 

  (in my case a CTMH Stitched Bracket)

optional - embossing powder 

  (I used clear embossing powder DragonFly)

 

Directions:

Score the 2 @ 10" x 6" cardstock at 1", 2", 8" & 9"
