Sympathy cards for men are often hard to find. I like the simple elegance of the dragonfly. The card front is rich with embossing while the message and design are uncluttered and clear.
I used a small die and stamp set to create the dragonfly. I cut it 3 times; 1 from silver foil cs, 1 from teal, and one from white vellum that has a few swirls. To create the texture, I stamped the vellum layer with pale aqua ink, then heat embossed it with clear. This wing layer came out shiny and textured.
The sentiment "Forever" is cut from the same silver foil cardstock as the frame layer and bottom wing layer of the dragonfly. I love the splendour it provides. It looks different from every angle as the light flashes across it.
