Dragonfly Garden: Day 3

I have been using this set quite a lot. We used it at OnStage online in November and I have been experimenting with it since. The Dandy Garden suite collection comes with many elements.

For these two cards, I used the DSP Dandy Garden. I cut the DSP in half and decided to emboss on the DSP. On the first one I embossed in Gold and then decided I would try used White embossing powder on the other one.

The gold one has a strip of Gold foil on the right hand side of the DSP and it is wrapped with Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon. The base is Old Olive and I stamped some dragonflies in Old Olive ink on the right hand side before adding the DSP. I felt it needed a sentiment so I used Misty Moonlight and embossed in gold and mounted it on Whisper White. This was cut out using the Lovely Label Pick a punch. It was raised on dimensionals and I added some white gems to the card.

The card with the white embossing was also placed on the centre of the Old Olive base and I added two pieces of Whisper White which I embossed with the Scripty Folder on top and bottom. The white ribbon was also added to this and a sentiment in Misty Moonlight embossed with white.

The reason I did a second card was that I felt the gold did not stand out as much as I had hoped, so I wanted to try a different combination. I do prefer the white embossing but the gold looks good as well.
