I started out by die cutting the Dragonfly in gold foil paper. It is a very thick paper and the die has some intricate cuts so I placed a piece of cardstock folded under my plate for some extra thickness. It cut perfectly the first time. I just received my Vagabond 2, so I wasn't sure how thick I would need.
My card is 4 x 5.5 in size and I played with my gelatos for this card... Ok, well my purple gelato! I used watercolor paper and gesso to place a layer over the paper (let this dry). I then scribbled some gelato and with my spray bottle spritzed and moved the gelato until I was happy with it. I wanted this card to be simple .. but let me tell you.. it looks stunning in person.
I wanted the dragonfly to really be raised, so I placed two layers of adhesive foam .. it was so high that you could see the foam. I took out a gold marker and colored it so it would blend in. You can leave the wings as is or I bent them slightly giving them some curve.
I then stamped my sentiment and embossed in gold. Placed the dragon fly on the card and added a few rhinestone embellishments for the final touch.
