Dragonfly Thanks by Laura Fulcher
About five years ago, I taught a masculine card class and was determined to include a floral card into the mix. After all, my favorite stamps tend to be flowers, leaves, butterflies, and dragonflies. Why buy something special just to make a "guy" card?
For my card today, I used some of my favorite stamps and changed the color palette so that it would be a good masculiene card.
You may not have noticed, but I use this leaf stamp a LOT (Silhouette 2 E552). It is just such a practical stamp to have/use. I started with kraft cardstock, stamped the Medallion Cover a Card (CC032) on top with Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch ink and then stamped the leaves on top with Colorbox Chalk Creamy Brown ink.
When I finished stamping the leaves, the card looked like this:
I wanted to add a bit more interest to the leaves, so I added several shades of brown Prismacolor pencil on top of the stamped leaves so that they looked like this:
To finish the card, I stamped the Dragonfly (D1339) and saying (Thanks B5630) with Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle ink.
