  1. Cut a 12" x 12" piece of black distressed scrapbook paper in half.  Use one of the halves as the card.  Fold in half and crease with a bone folder.
  2. Trim a piece of 6" x 6" black and white patterned paper by 1/4" on the top edge and a side edge.  Distress the edges with black dye ink by rubbing ink pad along paper edge.  Adhere to the front of the card panel with glue stick.  
  3. Cut three panels of black paper approximately 1.75" x 4.5".  Cut three panels of white shimmer paper to be slightly smaller than the black panels.
  4. Stamp the Middle Eastern Tile stamp onto the shimmer white cardstock with black dye ink.  Use a heat tool to speed up drying.
  5. Cut three strips of microfiche filmstrip to the width of the white panels.  Adhere at varying points across the widths of the panels with red line tape. 
  6. On one panel, stamp Collage Diva image in embossing ink.  Sprinkle with black detail embossing powder and heat with heat tool.
  7. On the other two panels, attach dragonfly charms using metal glue.
  8. Adhere embellished white panels to black panels.  Adhere completed panel pieces to card.  Arrange on card front leaving a small space at bottom.
  9. Stamp Remarkable Definition stamp with black dye ink onto white shimmer cardstock.  Adhere to the back of a metal slide holder.  Adhere embellished slide holder to card placing it over two of the panels.
  10. On a silver rimmed black tag, apply rub-on words.  Attach tag to one of the panels using a white eyelet.  Punch a hole where the tag will lie with a hold punch and use an eyelet setter to set the eyelet in place (through the tag and through the card itself).
  11. At the bottom of the card, stick black dot stickers in a straight line.
  12. Sign the back of your card!  To make sure your signature shows, use a white gel pen.
