Dragonfly Circle Card

Hi bloggers!  I just love this dragon fly and I think it makes a great alternative to a butterfly too.  It works a treat as an accent on guy cards as well, don't you think?

 The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi there Sue. What a fresh clean look to today's sample, the bright white red and pop of black makes for a pretty wake up alarm. I know there are lots and lots of crafters that enjoy using dragonflies unfortunately I'm not one of those, not an insect I like coming close to me lol a real wimp, but one thing I do love is watching you put your samples together so I'll be making my way to your craft room shortly - put the kettle on, coffee, white no sugar please. Have a wonderful day xxx

Thank you a lovely card and, a great video too.
Some dragon flies are just as beautiful as butterflies.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Morning Sue, such a cute little dragonfly which will look pretty in lots of colourways with the odd touch of gilding polish.
Until a friend of mine started 'watching' them, alongside the water birds, I didn't realise that they came in lots of different colours etc. Just shows, you're never too old to learn.
Lovely card Sue. Off to watch your video. Hugs xx Pauline

Hi Sue
I love this card. The triple layer dragonfly is a real beauty. As you say a wonderful alternative to using a butterfly. The colours are perfect - just a pop of red. The video is on my to do list x

Good morning Sue and all.
What a great start to the day Sue. I just love dragon flies and spent many happy hours on the deck with my DH when we lived in Canada watching them and enjoying all the wonderful colours.
I used my Dragonfly dies when practising with Pixie Powders too.
Thank you so much for the great video and have a Happy Tuesday.

Good Morning Sue. Lovely card today Sue. But I am sorry to say I can't watch the videos while we are away as the WiFi isn't strong enough to stream... It's only about enough to comment. At least I can see what the card is each day so I won't be missing that. Will have to catch up when I get home. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

What a striking card great for a man or a woman!

ursula said...

Wow, amazing idea for a mans card....always a problem for me making cards for men, so add this one to my list, thank you Sue....luv Ursula xx

Suzzette Yandle said...

Fabulous card design. I'm really liking your dragonfly die. Just before you cut the dragonfly from the double layers of black and white card stock in your video, I thought the dragonfly would make a great focal layer by cutting multiple dragonflies, at random, from the same black and white layers. Thanks for the helpful video.

Another lovely card today - quite striking.
