Looking for another simple summer design?  The Left Hutton Gate creates a great frame for a gold Dazzling Dragonfly.  It's both bold and delicate, like the dragonfly.  Add a pair of Little Dragonflies as accents to balance the composition, and your card is done!    Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a quick card that will be ready for any occasion.

Scrunch a sheet of waxed paper and rub it briskly over the Left Hutton Gate to help release the little pieces.  Cut Left Hutton Gate from black cardstock.

Cut red cardstock with the 2-¼" Circle Basics die.  

Attach Scor-Tape behind gold mirror cardstock and cut Dazzling Dragonfly.

Attach Scor-Tape behind black cardstock and cut Little Dragonflies.

Attach the diecuts to an A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") card of recycled kraft cardstock.  Add tiny black sequins.

The Left and Right Hutton Gates are a versatile backdrop for any season - and they're especially great for summer cards.   They complement Memory Box butterflies, birds and flowers too -  and can be used separately, or in pairs.  Planning ahead?  The Huttons could also add a spooky touch to a Halloween card -  imagine a little ghost peering through the semicircle. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone at this Saturday's classes at Impress!  There's a repeat of the BEYOND THE BOX class, using Memory Box and Poppystamps designs as Dave intended - and in a few unexpected ways too.  The afternoon's SUMMER HEARTS class takes great heart-themed cards beyond Valentine designs.  I've re-designed some of my heart cards to take advantage of the Summer Release dies that start shipping to retailers on June 15th.  

Thanks for stopping by - hope you'll be back for Laura's great card on Friday!
