The dimensions for this card are pretty simple:
Mossy Meadow card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 - scored at 4 1/4
Mossy Meadow - 5 1/4 x 4
Strips of DSP - 1 x 6 - I had 8 strips cut
Whisper White - 5 1/4 x 4 for inside
Scrap of Whisper White for sentiment

You can find the video demonstration of this card HERE


This card was made using the Poinsettia Petals DSP

And here's a sneak peek using some DSP from the upcoming January - June mini catalog.
 
And just to show you a little bit more from this new set - Dragonfly Garden. 

This is a swap card I made

We made this card during On Stage at Home.
