Art Nouveau Dragonfly Birthday card for Bitten by the Bug 2
Good morning and welcome to the latest Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. The theme this time around is birthday. I had the the dragonfly cut in my stash. Luckily, I still had some of the same papers to create the rest of the card. I had the same coral card stock from the center of the dragonfly. I used it and the same brown to cut the sentiment using the Art Nouveau font.
I was also able to match the yellow Bazzill card stock exactly. I found the teal shimmer made a great card base. The reason I didn't use this cut in the first place was the size. It is 7" across. I must have added the brown shadow after the fact and didn't quite account for the extra dimension.
Fast forward a couple of years and slimline cards are all the rage! Yeah me! Now I had this great cut. I also have some slimline dies in my stash. I used a stitched slimline panel while allowing .25" of the teal shimmer to be revealed on the top and bottom. The final dimensions are 4" x 8.5".
