Make This Handmade Dragonfly Card On Your Computer!

Here's a handmade dragonfly card that I made with the help of my computer using royalty free graphic.

It's is quite easy but will need detail embossing powder, a heat gun and a piece of acetate or clear transparency. Make sure that the transparency is one that can withstand heat.

Here, I use eyelets to attach the transparency to the card front.

Try it! It's fun! And whoever receives it will love and treasure it.
