Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day and today's featured die is Dragon Delight.
This is a Die D-Lite™ and the approximate sizes are:
Solid Dragonfly: 2½ x 1⅝”
Intricate Dragonfly: 2½ x 1⅝”

This is how they look cut/embossed.
The die cuts can be used separately or overlaid.
So many colour combos work beautifully.
Today a mini gift card.  I've cut two solid dragonflies and one intricate.
Created an overlay (mounted on foam pads) and kept one plain. 
Positioned onto a small square of cream cardstock.
You will note the larger solid one is on the edge of the card...
I've trimmed it away to keep in line with the card edge for a different look.
Attached a little tag (Back to Basics Tags) and secured with twine.
Mounted this onto matching pink cardstock and a cream card base.
A pretty mini gift card....
not festive at all!
Have a brilliant weekend everyone,
I'm off to the Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace - photos to follow.

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. This is such a sweet mini card. I love how you have used the solid Dragon Fly on the edge of the card. I must remember that as it looks great.
Have a great time at Hampton Court, sadly I won't be at that one but am going to Ally Pally. Do you ever do that one, or the NEC? It would be lovely to meet you, may have to arrange a road trip to your shop with Sandra (fellow Hope and Chances follower)and Pat!
Enjoy yourself today. Take care.

Pretty cards today Christine. I have a butterfly set which includes a solid dragonfly, but not the lacy one to go with it. (shame).

I just got my Sue Wilson Angel die, and I am a happy bunny. Your trip to Hampton Court sounds lovely, I wish I could go too, will look forward to the pics.
