Dragonfly Dreams

I needed a birthday card for my friend, Linda, and decided to try my hand using the Dragonfly Dreams and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits for her card.  It's ok, her birthday was yesterday, so she should have received her card by now.

Linda likes the rich, dark colors of green, so I decided to use some of my retired DSP, Botanical Gardens from last year.  I also wanted to use some Gold Foil so that the Dragonfly would stand out from the background.  Here is what I came up with.

I think she will really like it too.  I used a piece of Gold Foil paper large enough to cut out the Dragonfly and then used that piece to mount my DSP on, little to no waste that way too!  I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set, Dragonfly Dreams, that coordinates with the Thinlits, using Black Memento ink.  I also made a black dragonfly and mounted that on the inside with a small strip of Gold Foil and DSP.  I stamped, "Enjoy your special day!"  The card base is Very Vanilla, as that is what is in the DSP.

I hope she likes it!!  Mary

Hi Mary,

Love this card! Especially the gold dragonfly. I've been liking using foil on my cards lately, too. I always like a little sparkle! I always look at all your blog posts, but don't comment as often as I should.
