Wonderful Dragonflies and Butterflies at Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies we want to see your Cards with Dragonflies/Butterflies as the main focus.


I was inspired by Mary's Split Panel Card tutorial at Cardz TV to make a card using my new Fuse Tool. I used a free printable for the dragonfly template. I printed the wings onto vellum, stamped them twice with a stained glass-patterned rubber stamp from DRS Designs, and heat-embossed it with a mix of glitter & two blue powders. I colored the backs of the wings with a blue Wink of Luna pen. The body was printed on regular white cardstock, colored with the same blue pen, and decorated with chunky glitter & Flowersoft. The ringed portion was made with a border sticker, double-sided adhesive, and more vellum. I sprinked the sticky part with the same embossing powders I used for my mix.

The pre-embossed, handmade blue paper is from my stash; I stamped the Recollections sentiment directly onto it. The top & bottom stripes are covered with my blue/glitter embossing mix. I used a cellophane bag to create the shaker portion, and filled it with butterfly sequins & blue microbeads.
