Dragonfly card

Sometimes simple is best. No coloring, no fancy cuts. Just two papers layered onto cardstock and a dragonfly embellishment made this card for a friend who likes dragonflies.

Both the paper and embellishment are from K&Company. The dragonfly was a new purchase, the paper is from a mat pack that is at least four years old.

I mimicked the dragonfly on the envelope, using a Copic multi-liner and Prismacolor pencils. Our nicknames are in the wings.

The only downside to using thick embellishments is the extra postage that is often required. I tell myself that I am saving money by not buying cards in a gift shop. The hundreds of dollars invested in dies, Copic markers, adhesives and papers don't count.
