Now, one card I just have to show in full (the lady who I made this for is not a blogger), and that is the DRAGONFLY.
Chris Richards at Ella's Craft Creations has embroidered some stunning dragonflies. She is a master stitcher and has kindly offered a tutorial on her blog. What an excellent idea for a birthday card, I thought, and following Chris's simple and clear instructions made this little one.
It is not in Chris's league but I am quite pleased with the result. Actually it was much easier than I had anticipated and so much fun. I can highly recommend having a go.
One change I made was to use pressed Angelina fibres for the wings instead of the organza ribbon in the instructions.
