Mini Dragonfly Card

Good morning. So here is another of those mini cards that will be winging its way to Jill very shortly. The scanned in image has come out darker than it is in real life and again has not picked up the glitter both on the dragonfly and the background. The dragonfly is from the Funky Frames stamp sheet and the wording and flourishes are from the Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet. The background paper is by Basic Grey and I just embellished it using different flourishes and inkpads. The tile behind the dragonfly is made from clear shrink plastic. I stamped into it while it was still hot with one of the flourish stamps to give it texture. The dragonfly was coloured with Coloursoft pencils, Sansador and paper stumps.

All the materials used are available from The Craft Barn and the stamps are available from both The Stamp Man and The Craft Barn.

Love your cute dragonfly Kay.
It's been great seeing the rest of your old studio photos too. I still don't know how you could part with it, especially after personalising it so much. I hope some very appreciative crafting person bought it from you.

Ooooooooo, this is beautiful Kay, love your stamps, basic grey papers and the fact that it all fits so well on a mini card.
Dare I ask what the dimensions are?

Hi Lisa,

Unfortunately my old studio is now just used as a junk room - how sad!!


Christine - the measurements are the same as the butterfly card - 10x10cm.

This size really does make super little cards.

Oh, thank you Kay, I cannot wait to get these cards, I bet they are even lovelier in real life with the glitter. Thank you very much:)

If anyone is at the Stamp Magic Doncaster show on the 21st, do pop by to see them, we'll have Kay's stamps there too.

this is such a cute card! the more i see these stamps the more they may have to fall into my basket!!!

Hi Jill,

I'll get them into the post for you on Monday. Meanwhile I'll continue to tease you and post them up here!!


Nicki - I am sure you won't regret it if they do!! Everyone really liked them when they saw them in real life last weekend and they were one of the bestsellers. Infact The Craft Barn sold out of both the Funky Flowers and the Funky Frames.
