Magical Birthday - Dragon Kisses
Today we are showcasing a great new stamp set called Dragon Kisses. The stamp set features several dragons, an adorable Viking lass and several sentiments. Be sure and check it out at Brutus Monroe.
This little guy is so stinking cute I couldn't help but choose him to be my focal point of this birthday card. He was colored in using Style File markers then scan and cut out. He was placed on a gray shadow oval to anchor him on the card. (This was done so the dragon did not appear to be floating on the card.)The card layer that the dragon was attached to was first stamped with one of the sentiments from the stamp set. Next using a punch many holes were added to the area the dragon would be attached. Using various colors of embroidery thread the holes were used to create confetti to surround the dragon's head. (Does this remind anyone of the old sewing cards from yesteryear?) The dragon was then attached with foam tape.
To complete the card the dragon layer was attached to a blue layer which was attached to the card base using foam tape again. A clean and simple card always looks better when it is given dimension using foam tape.
