Embossed Dragonflies

Hello again!! It’s time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Emboss It

We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

This card was super easy and super quick to make. Just about everything I used is from Simon Says Stamp. If not made by Simon then definitely available at Simon Says Stamp. All I did was I took a piece of Rose Gold Metallic Card Stock and emboss it with the Vine Canopy Embossing Folder.

I set the background aside and die cut 3 dragonflies using the Etched Dragonfly die by Simon Says Stamp.

I also cut out the Groovy Happy Birthday die and I ink blended them all using Wilted Violet and Salty Ocean distress oxide inks.

I cut the Groovy Happy Birthday out two more times and I stacked them together to pop them up a bit from the card front.

I love this color combination. I went over the dragonflies and the sentiment with my Aqua Shimmer Pen to give it some much needed sparkle. I had the shine from the rose gold metallic card stock but I needed that sparkle too.

I cut some 3D Foam Squares in half and added it to the back of my dragonflies.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
