More Dragonflies

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

When I was playing with dragonflies for this card I had some snippets of 
designer paper on the table and was able to get three sets of wings from it and
used some snippets of the gold foil for the bodies.


The embossing folder was out too and they all went together as easy as 1 2 3!

I just had to share it with you.

I had a piece of Neenah Solar White embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder and
double embossed it by putting it in the Leafy 3D Embossing folder and embossing again.
I wish the photo showed the extra texture in that background.

Can You Handle the Pressure - Use an embossing folder (no twist this time)

Bonnie, I love the bits of gold on their wings - such a beautiful way to use some of those snippets! A very beautiful way to say hello!

Nstiz said...

Love the paper you chose for the dragonflies. The gold running through it adds some pizzazz to this card. Your gorgeous embossed background is sure an eye catcher. LOVE this!

Bobby said...

Those snippets were perfect for the wings, Bonnie. The touches of gold accent the gold of their bodies. I've double embossed before so I can see in my mind's eye what yours looks like - fabulous.

JoAnn said...

Lovely card and great use of those snippets for the dragonflies. Love the leafy embossed background too.

Oh, I LOVE the patterned paper for the dragonflies wings. Great idea and they really add to the beautiful card. So pretty.

Susan said...

Lovely use of your snippets of dp for the dragonflies. They look great against the 3D embossing folder.

Leslie Miller said...

Well, of course you had to share! I'd be upset if you didn't. Those dragonflies are utterly gorgeous and the embossing is such a beautiful pattern. Anything leafy, sigh... Thanks for not holding back, Bonnie!

It's beautiful. I love to see different cards made from the same products, it helps inspire me. Thanks for the inspiration xx

Gorgeous bits!

Pat said...

These dragonflies are beautiful Bonnie and I love the 3D embossed leaves over texture already on the card from using an ordinary embossing folder which I'm sure does add lots of interest but which unfortunately it is difficult to see in the photo. x
