Snow and Dragonfly Card


Snowed in! Not kidding! It started snowing around 4:00 am and it’s still snowing at 9:30 pm and may not stop until Sunday night – that’s 3 days of constant snow! They said we could get well over 8” – I think it’s about that much already!

I found this on the Internet – it sums it up.






I almost forgot to post a card tonight. I keep thinking its Saturday. I love dragonflies so here’s a dragonfly card.




The background paper and floral paper and the paper of the largest die cut (Spellbinder die) are all from a 6” paper pack. I found the blue one in the stash that matched but I sponged some extra blue ink around the edges, leaving the middle light blue. The sentiment is a peel-off that is on a hand cut banner from the left over background paper.

          The dragonfly came about because I was experimenting one day with embossing the stamp on vellum but never did anything with them. They were okay but I really only liked the way the wings turned out. So, to use them up I stamped and embossed the same stamp with white embossing powder on that blue label. Then I hand cut the dragonfly wings; flipped it over and applied some alcohol ink to the underside; added a glue dot to just the centre by the body and glued in place. That leaves the wings free. Then I added some gems down the centre of the dragonfly; small blue gems and sequins around the dragonfly and called it done.

          That’s all for a very, very snowy Friday. Have a safe and wonderful weekend everyone.

Cheers
