Cardz 4 Galz Dragonfly Card {09.28.2017}

Hi! Today's card is for the Cardz 4 Galz most recent Challenge: Dragonflies! I also did some heat embossing, foiling, and had to incorporate some huge ribbon ... here is the card.

I stamped the dragon fly (from a stamp set that has been retired I think) with Versafine Black Onyx ink and sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I heat set it, and then colored the dragonfly with prismacolor pencils. I also squeezed on some Nuvo White Blizzard Crystal Drops along the dragonfly body, and on some of the wing areas. I also stamped out the hello you sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Scripty Sayings, and sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's Silver Lightning embossing powder and heat set it. I layered the dragon fly over a die cut circle.

I also created a background by foiling a Tonic Studios Budding Vine Patterned Panels by die cutting a card panel covered with Sparkle N Sprinkle Super Adhesive Sheets. I removed the adhesive release paper layer from the vine area. I covered the adhesive with light green foil, then ran it through my laminator to press the foil into the adhesive. After this step, I removed the rest of the release paper over the negative spaces, and then pressed in Sparkle N Sprinkle's Bridal glitter in the negative spaces.

I finished off the card with a light green ribbon, and the card was done. I love how sparkly and colorful this card is. I know my friend will love it. I can't wait to see what you enter in our Dragonfly challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

  1. wow Wow WOW! Chris, this is one incredibly beautiful card! I love the combination of foiling and EP - and your colors could not be prettier. I envy that gorgeous bow as well. Of course that image has to be retired, because I am in love with it! LOL It's so PRETTY in its curvy, lovely details.

    I enjoy watching the dragonflies in our area as they dive bomb flying ants and mosquitoes. They are incredible the way they "stand their ground" and challenge birds. It's always especially enjoyable to walk out my front door, water my plants, and have a dragonfly or two watch me carefully, keeping me company LOL thanks for the delightful inspiration on your card today! hugs, de
