Dragonfly birthday

Time for my second creation for this months Country View Crafts challenge - where we are using the Industrial Technique.
 I seem to have used this alot recently, Tim Holtz January Tag, A Vintage Journey February Challenge and now CVC for March (here is my first creation if you missed it). My foil is now put away!!!

This time I made a birthday card with Tim Holtz dragonfly die and coordinating embossing folder. I also used the same embossed foil and paint technique on the honeycomb panel behind.
My 'Wishes' greeting was die cut from a scrap of foil and dabbed with distress paints - love the marbled effect on this if you can see it in the photo below...
The finished card:
See you next time...


  1. Wonderful to use the foil in this way

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Brilliant Nikki, to be honest if you excel at a medium keep using it is what I say!
